PART 2 OF 2 (cont.)
--I peeked into the lives of the Barkmans, a wholly-American couple attempting to live abroad in Scotland for the first time.
--Brad and I contemplated our respective love lives in Colombia, two young misfits, uncertain of what our futures would behold.
--Melanie and I experienced what it was like to backpack from Honduras to Nicaragua to Costa Rica, all via chicken bus.
--In the Netherlands, I smoked the White Widow and got connived by Big Bear into seeing my first and only sex show, a performance that radically changed how I performed in the boudoir.
--I convinced eight of my closest friends to escape the modern stresses of their adult lives and spend a week with me, post-divorce, healing in Mexico.
--I endured one the most miserable hikes of my life with Ryan, conquering Costa Rica's Volcano Chato while wearing TWO backpacks.
--Real chocolate in Belgium. A Chilean love affair that was way too short, yet way too long. Endangered animal sanctuaries in El Salvador. Triple meats in Argentina. The U.K., mate!
Usually in your thirties, one hunkers down with their significant other...and travel thickens quite one-dimensionally. Part of this was my choosing, but I've been blessed to have a cadre of loved ones who were willing to explore these life-altering experiences with me. Travel has helped me understand myself and the world so much better than I could've ever imagined...and for not that much money either! Most of these trips were under $700/person, all in (food, airfare, lodging, etc) .
Yesterday, I plodded off to the Post Office to get my passport photo taken. You're not allowed to wear glasses, which struck me as strange, seeing I've worn them in both my prior passports. Aside from sex and swimming, my spectacles are always glued to my nose - so much so that seeing my real face always catches me off-guard. I commented to the Agent that I thought my pic looked like a ridiculously accurate mug shot. Her response? "I'd take you home tonight." And I didn't even have to show her how many stamps I had in my passport!
I love Detroit, almost as much as I do Michigan summers. Alas, Labor Day nears and it's time to get back on road...

PART 1 OF 2.
--Belle Isle beach time
--Lakes of Fire
--Unruly porch dance parties
Few things entice me more than a balmy Michigan summer. Alas, Labor Day nears...and I refuse to spend this upcoming winter, holed up in my basement, surrounded by space heaters and way too many comforters. Time to kick the tires on this Instagram account and get back on the road!
First things first: My passport needs renewing.
One of the more annoying moments of traveling abroad is enduring the Passport Game. Reserved solely for the arrogant and insecure, the objective is to fill up your passport with as many different stamps as possible, that way when you meet other foreign travelers, the bro-bros of the pack can exchange barbs and literally calculate who's the most "well-traveled" and "cultured" of the bunch. It's kinda like the Whose Penis is Bigger Game...which, outside of practicality, doesn't measure anything of substance, passion, or fulfillment. NO, CHAD, JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE TRAVELED TO 32 BILLION COUNTRIES DOESN'T MEAN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THIS WORLD WORKS. PLEASE STOP WHIPPING IT OUT EVERY TIME YOU NEED TO SELF-VALIDATE.
These past few years, I've grown adept at minimizing any connected self-worth I might associate with the tangible, physical "stuff" in my life. My car, house, clothing...I don't care about any of it, especially the perceived status that comes along for the ride (not that you can have much status to begin with, puttering around in a 2013 lime-green Ford Fiesta you bought secondhand off your mom). I must admit though, as I submitted my old passport today for renewal, I couldn't help but get sentimental over this grubby, beat-up book...and all the self-growth/experience it's given me:
--I witnessed my brother marry the love of his life in Jamaica.
--I beheld the face of true evil, visiting my first mass grave site, recording human rights violations in Guatemala with Jen.
--I got to watch Tara learn how intrinsically different third-world poverty is from U.S. poverty, while we navigated Peru.
--I feigned royalty, while exploring my heritage in India. (cont.)

Tres libros sobre una misma realidad,pero desde dos puntos de vista distintos."Beautiful boy" de David Sheff en el que un padre narra su desesperación e impotencia por ayudar a su hijo a salir del mundo de las drogas,y "Tweak" y "We all fall down" de Nic Sheff,en el que el propio hijo nos describe todo el proceso de caídas, rehabilitaciones,terapias y mentiras.No sé si están publicados en español pero los tres merecen la pena.David Sheff es periodista por lo que su libro resulta más técnico, aunque transmite perfectamente el desgarro de la familia.Personalmente me resultaron más interesantes los de Nic Sheff por el componente de autoanálisis y sobre todo por su sinceridad.En octubre se estrena película con la adaptación de los libros con Steve Carell y Timothée Chalamet.Veremos si consiguen hacer justicia a los libros,y sobre todo a sus protagonistas.

I missed my #meditation yesterday. I’m bummed because i broke my streak after I hit #100daysinarow Sure I could make excuses, I was tired, we were doing renovations, I was busy, but the truth is yesterday I made a choice, a choice that I would choose again because it was more valued to me in that moment. Don’t get me wrong meditation is one of my values, being focused, being calm and staying in control are all values to me that’s why I #meditatedaily but yesterday I had something change that I valued more and so I Made a conscience decision. I chose to hang with my hubby before work instead of doing my #morningroutine i choose to help him with clean up during renovations after work and then I chose to go to bed. Actually I chose to scroll aimlessly through Facebook and Instagram for about 20 minutes before bed (this one is not a choice I’m not proud of) but the point is life is all about decisions. We can say we don’t have time, we can say we are busy, we can say I can’t do that but the reality is that we will do whatever is aligned to our values. So today, I was prepared to say #fuckit and wait till the renovations were over before meditating again since I lost my streak but I chose to start over. We will all fall, we will make some decisions that are aligned to our values and sometimes we will make bad decisions but the important thing is that we #startover we get back up again after the fall and say #imback #startovernow #dontgiveup #weallfalldown #tryagain #dailymeditation #keepgoing

У We Happy Few буде сезонний абонемент з трьома доповненнями. Так як реліз фінальної версії гри вже на носі, Compulsion Games вирішила розповісти, які історії дістануться власникам розширеного комплекту. • Roger & James in: They Came From Below! «Тямущий Роджер і Палкий Джеймс відправляються на пошуки пригод і любові, проте замість цього виявляють химерну технологію і жахливу загрозу. Все навколо не те, чим здається. Або ж навпаки - саме те, що видно з першого погляду? » • Lightbearer. «Нік Лайтберер - серцеїд і творець з емоційними проблемами, а також сама шанована рок-зірка в Веллінгтон-Уеллсі. Але що ним рухає насправді? Дивіться вечірнє шоу Дяді Джека, щоб дізнатися правду ».
• We All Fall Down. «Подібно зношеної маски щастя, на обличчі будь-якого суспільного ладу починають з'являтися тріщини. Але це не означає, що потрібно копатися в минулому і шукати бруд. Вірно? * Ковтає пігулку "Радості" * Вірно! ». #WeHappyFew #CompulsionGames #Roger & Jamesin:TheyCameFromBelow #Lightbearer #WeAllFallDown #ігри #новини #games #gamerb #news #dota2 #cs:go #kiromida_game

Running friends make the best friends! Beyond thankful for Susan running with me today. She picked me up after I busted hard today. She kept me going and was so encouraging. It was a special treat seeing Vera today! She always has a smile waiting for you! Thank you ladies! As far as the fall goes, I'm sore, some places worse than others, and my favorite water bottle broke, so I am very lucky! #runnerprobs #weallfalldown

Today was a major binge day. My body was going through major hormonal shifts and I felt stressed out. I’m not proud of today but to not record it all here or to lie about it by omitting to put everything in would just be an injustice to myself. So I shamefully recorded it all. Let me look back on this as a constant reminder of the abuse we sometimes do to our bodies for no apparent reason.
To my spirit, my mind and especially to my body: I’m sorry for my moment of weakness. I’ll try harder... 😞
