Here it is, my most sincere, sad-face blog post to date: lots of things have sucked in the past few months...
Something has happened that I had never experienced in my 26 years of life, and it has not been pretty. Over the past 2 months life has been throwing the fattest curveballs my way and it's gotten out of hand at times. My San Diegan friends can't believe my bad luck, and I've had a hard time convincing them that it hasn't always been this way for me.
I was born feet first, which may not mean a great deal to you, but in my country it is a common belief that this random occurrence will bring me the greatest luck for the rest of my life. I have always secretly - and unreasonably - accredited all the great things that have happened to me to that uncommon detail of my birth.
But not in San Diego I guess... just look at this poor thing
Fortunately I got out of that accident with just a bruised arm...but the car didn't make it so I´ve become carless in a country where public transportation is not the best.
But why am I ranting to you about this? Mainly because I really want to continue finding absolutely awesome content for new blog posts that bring you laughter, adventure, and that 'I-want-to-go-there feeling.' However, that is pretty tough to do when I've got so much in my mind, like: damn I had only had my car for two months; or, my roommate is crazy and I'd rather be homeless than continue living there; or I'm going to have to file, not one but two sexual harassment complains to my manager about two of my coworkers... and the list goes on, but phew! here I am, trying to keep it real and wanting to write about all the awesome things that San Diego offered me during what my friends call, my "San Diegan honeymoon period," or before things went to crap.
But I am also telling you all this because one of my goals is to post once a week, which of course has not been the case since September! While looking for some inspiration for a new blog post I found a professional blogger who said, "always keep it real," so I thought I´d explain what's going on. Now you know why I've been so quiet lately; but also know that Paur Travels is not simply shutting down, just taking a little break. ;)
Happy upcoming holidays to all and perhaps, if it applies to you: keep it real, it might liberate you.
Colombian, living and traveling the world (well- not so much at the moment) I am currently sharing my time between San Diego, CA and Albuquerque, NM.
