So, this is the inaugural blog entry. I'm not sure if it's the heat wave we're currently experiencing in San Diego, my ennui with work or the re-appearance of my dear friend Danielle in the States that made me want to start a blog, but somehow today it seemed like a feasible idea.

Let me clarify that the heat wave here would be no big deal in most parts of America because of air conditioning, but for those of us who live near the Pacific Ocean coast, we are out of luck and must suffer through a few days each summer. A small price to pay I suppose.

So, I imagine this blog is going to go in 2 directions: entries on my fascination and aggravation with the Spanish language/my love for the English language, as flawed as it may be and my travel plans. I'm uncovering a formerly dormant love of linguistics (again, thanks Danielle!) and a new found realization that I finally have a job where I can afford to travel.

Previously, I worked in one of two ways: I worked a crappy job (ie waitressing through college and grad school) where I could take the time off but wouldn't get paid or working a "career" job which paid shite but gave me 2 weeks off every year (which I really couldn't go anywhere because of said shite wages). Gotta love jobs in journalism and teaching.


  1. Very pretty photo! And this sounds like it will become a nice blog to follow, so I'm adding you to my list too :-) I look forward to reading about your adventures.

  2. Thanks! I really like your blog! I loved reading my friend's blog from Brazil so much, I decided to jump on the blog train as well.

  3. Yaaaaaaaaay I'm so excited!
    I even got mentioned twice!
    I'm so sad I didn't get to see you. Did you get your juice?
