It’s been a loooong time since I’ve written here, and in between, life has done a 360 for me. I got engaged, and married to the love of my life, I suffered through a bout of panic attacks, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder, I got through the former with wellness, I went back to school for wellness — and decided to craft a new journalism career based off of this. Whew! run-on sentence but you know, I wanted to visually express the mouthful that my life has been since I last posted here. I honestly contemplated whether writing and journalism was…

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or have purposefully decided to ignore the political and social upheaval that our current administration has caused by creating some terribly questionable enforcement of their zero tolerance immigration policy, then you don’t know that the Trump’s U.S. Immigration Policy is resulting in the separation of immigrant children from their parents at the U.S./Mexico border.

Honestly, I’ve been wanderlusting after a trip to New Zealand, ever since I became a hiking obsessed, part-time granola, which has been, pretty much, forever. My lust reached a fever pitch just now, when I happened to be looking for hotels for a little island getaway, and Pounamu Apartments in Queenstown dipped across my screen. Imagine, apartments that you can rent, that are spacious, with floor to ceiling windows, overlooking New Zealand’s bucolic majesty, with a fully stocked and loaded kitchen that you can cook in (the cooking part might not sound like a vacation to some, but for meeee?…
