A Burrito a Day Across America

10 am or 10 pm, it doesn’t matter. Burritos are available and the most filling and nutritious option on the road, especially for vegetarians.

Why Fish Don’t Exist, A Wrinkle in Time, Mr. Penumbra’s 24- Hour Bookstore

I’ve been in a bit of reading slump this summer, but for good reason. We were out traveling! I’m back to the apartment now, and getting some good reading done with cinnamon coffee and cooler weather.

I recently stumbled upon “Booktube,” a community of creators on youtube who review and…

Travel and Musings in Upstate New York

Bachelor Party on the Road in California

After I dropped my friend Jess off at the airport in San Francisco, I picked up Ben’s brother and cousin from the airport. We drove straight to Half Moon Bay for drinks and lunch on the ocean.

Traveling up the California Coast with my friend

Jess and I had been raging against the patriarchy this morning, and how men need to do better. Similar to how as white people it’s our responsibility to hold ourselves and other white people accountable, the same goes for men. …

Nude Beaches, Sea Lions and “This is 30”

Jess is one of my favorite people in the world, and I am so happy to be spending time with her in San Diego. It has ocean, mountains, Mexico, and desert all available for day trips.

We began the trip with some exciting job searching for Jess which might not…
