I totally forgot, yesterday marked exactly one month since @MycDazzle and I left the US!! It's legitimately NUTS how quickly time flies!! We've been living in another country for an entire MONTH! 😱
I always imagined I would be this person; living everyday as a new adventure, seeing sights most people never have the opportunity to witness. But the reality of living the life I envisioned for myself is such a trip. I always made an experience like this out to be something much harder than it actually is. I thought it would be crazy expensive, or too hard to adjust to, but really, it's a much easier (and CHEAPER) alternative than what I was doing back in the states.
Don't get me wrong, this has been a definite CHALLENGE! Going without American luxuries like flavorful food, consistent wifi, convenient stores etc has been a really big adjustment for us. But I've learned to get resourceful with my cooking, I've learned to be ok (kind of lol) with fasting and not indulging in treats and snacks all the time. I've learned to be ok without constant stimulation and entertainment. I feel like I'm remembering what it means to truly be HUMAN, and not a shell of a person anymore.
I'm getting SO much creative time in, in every medium I have an interest in. I've actually had TIME to start learning animation. I've had TIME to make new beats, create graphic pictures just for the fun of it, learn the manual settings on my camera, study metaphysical and occult secrets. I literally get to do EVERYTHING I like to do lol!
In 4 days we'll be headed to headed to Playa del Carmen next, and I'm super excited to see what a more industrialized international hub is like! Ah. For the first time maybe everrrr? I'm pressed over life. I'm excited about what the next week, month, and year will bring to my experiences! Mas Vida is the motto!
