My goal at the beginning of 2021 was to get fabulously rich and write a bestselling book. I figured that to do so, I'd need to grow my network. I wanted to make the most interesting friends in Austin, TX, and after that, the world. Despite all odds, I actually
I'm lowkey terrified of group workout classes, especially hard ones. But yesterday I went to a class that makes even grown men cry (and yes, I wanted to bail so badly beforehand!) And now? I'm looking at joining a similar type of gym full-time. Turns out, I love getting my
I've been trying to tell the same story for the last couple of years. In one of my most bizarre travel moments, January of 2019, the president of Mexico approached my then-boyfriend and I on the streets of La Condesa, and he and his wife chanted 'kiss kiss kiss!" at
