Monthly Wrapup Pin

August 2018

Hi followers, you ever speak too soon? I said I was keeping up with these in my last post, and here I am showing up 15 minutes late with Starbucks. Does anybody even post or read on Sundays? Well, here I am again to revisit what’s happened this month. Check me out if you’re on these platforms. Twitter Kababayan! Donate to indigenous Lumad communities displaced … Continue reading August 2018

Ballast Point Park

Hi followers, how are you? In my last travel post, I visited the Port Tampa Library. Today I’m sharing a local favorite on the other side of South Tampa: Ballast Point Park. Unlike the library, I’ve been to Ballast Point numerous times throughout my life. If you’re from Tampa, you’ve probably attended a birthday party here at some point. Not only is it a great … Continue reading Ballast Point Park

July 2018

Howdy followers, are you on all the social medias? I just had the idea of compiling my posts across the various accounts just in case you aren’t on one or the other and are missing out! At first I thought about making it weekly, but I can barely get around to my usual posts. Monthly collections will be easier for me to keep track, allow … Continue reading July 2018

Alles Gute zum Vatertag!

Hallo followers! Sprechen Sie Deutsch?  It was Father’s Day recently in the US, and it is ridiculously difficult to shop for my dad. All of those suggested gifts like ties, watches, fishing or electric tools, he’d never use! 😕 So I decided to finally check out Schiller’s Delicatessen and see if I could pick up some things that were unusual, that I couldn’t get anywhere else, or just … Continue reading Alles Gute zum Vatertag!

Travel Tips!

As I mentioned in my last post, I was lucky enough to hitch a ride for a last minute trip to Las Vegas with Julie a few weeks ago. Last minute for me anyway. I’m sure she’ll be blogging about it with much better pictures, so follow her or I’ll tell you when those posts are up! I don’t think I’ve traveled, by plane at … Continue reading Travel Tips!

Travel Tag

Oh my, I don’t know why itsmudges would tag me for for a travel meme, but I do appreciate it! I just haven’t traveled in 10 years, haha. Well, traveled any place more than like, an hour away. As cool as bloggers’ photos look and how amazing it must be, I don’t get that feeling of, “I must go there!” that you sojourners must. Not that I’ve no interest … Continue reading Travel Tag

Favorite Geocaching Locations

Long before Pokemon Go got me outside on my phone, geocaching got me exploring and searching for hidden gems in my own backyard. If you haven’t heard of geocaching, check out this post I wrote for For Vanity’s Sake last year. Basically, players hide “caches” and post GPS coordinates for others to find. Geocaches can come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and hiding difficulty. Some are … Continue reading Favorite Geocaching Locations

Genealogical Vacation

I watch genealogy tv shows like people watch sports. I’m yelling “Do the DNA tests! Take their spit!” at screen-Henry Louis Gates Jr. I’m so excited. While tracing one’s family can be totally privileged– money, war, genocide and more can sever branches– it’s utterly fascinating how these genealogists can find such information, know where to look, put it in historical context, etc. I’ve really no idea if I’ll ever … Continue reading Genealogical Vacation
