Hello, world! I haven't touched my blog in so many weeks (months?!) because there is so much backlogged content I want to write about (like the end of my PCT adventure, and the entirety of my Camino de Santiago adventure, and also some additional feelings I had while traveling), and for some reason I felt … Continue reading Just Some Personal News
Pack up all my stuff, quickly eat breakfast, race to the train station to begin my day: I was certainly getting into a routine in Switzerland. I used a locker at the train station in Montreux to store my backpack and took a tiny day pack with me up to Rochers de Naye.

Hey guys I dunno about you but I've been feeling really sad and anxious lately. Mostly I blame Donald Trump and the Portland rain. Maybe you've also been feeling sad and anxious, I dunno. Whether you're feeling totally fine or whether you wake up and cry/yell at NPR every day (yes, Alley's alarm clock is … Continue reading Remember when a teen boy recreated Beyoncé’s “Countdown” video perfectly while wearing a snuggie?
