I will be big

Thoughts

How to be a good girl: Work hard to look attractive, but act like you don’t know it.  Be “polite,” even when you’re being treated poorly.  Be grateful for what you’re given and don’t dare ask for more.  Look pretty at all times. Always. Be. Pretty. Understand that being pretty is the rent you have to pay in order to exist in this world, and be thankful for that. Look and act sexy for others, […]

who do you love? me, or the idea of me.

Thoughts

What is love and what is merely a fantasy? That my friends is the question I’ve been wresting with lately, and I’ll tell you why: Over the years I’ve come to discover that I am a perfect candidate for sad men to project their delusional fantasies of women onto. They flock to me because I’m nice, I’m pretty, I’m approachable, I smile a lot, and I’m always on the move; never planning to stay in […]

language / life lessons

Thoughts / Travel

Hey there wonderful humans! As many of you may know, I spent just over six and a half months traveling through Mexico and Guatemala this winter, having the time of my freeking life, eating my weight in refried beans, and communicating mostly with hand signals and broken Spanglish. Towards the end of my time in Latin America I decided to travel to Guatemala to take some Spanish classes (and live with a Spanish-only speaking family) […]

the journey to feeling human again after returning home from travel

Thoughts / Travel

1 week before you leave: you’re the happiest, most beautiful, and most free you’ve ever felt… while spontaneously bursting into tears at odd and inappropriate times. 2 days before you leave: you have random mini panic attacks interspersed with feeling really excited about all the food you’re about to eat and clothes you’re going to wear when you get home. on the plane home: you’re binge eating crackers and trail mix, binge listening to nostalgic […]

a letter to the lovers

Thoughts / Travel

On the road, every week feels like a month- a rebirth every seven days, and I slip in and out of love so effortlessly it takes my breath away. The connections we form, born out of reckless vulnerability, naive optimism, and shameless late-night flirting under the blood moon are as fiery as they are new, and then just like that- with the same intensity that they began, they’re over.  And I’m on the next bus, […]

i have a feeling

Fun / Thoughts

Yes, friends! I’m alive and well. My name is Lindsey and I’ve been ghosting this beautiful little space on the web for far too long, but ghost no more. Bestie JS, thank you for inspiring with your post. Now that it is 2019, I thought I would take a couple of minutes to do a little recap of what I was thankful for in 2018. Here it is… are you ready? Twenty eighteen, thank you […]

my body is changing, and it’s okay

Thoughts / Travel

Hola mi amigas! Since we’re such good friends and all, I wanted to share something that I haven’t spoken about much before- online or with friends. You ready? The last time I went traveling for 1 and 1/2 years, I gained 20 pounds. At the time I didn’t really realize. I knew my body had changed and I felt a little weird about it, but I wasn’t sure exactly how much until I returned home […]
