How do you travel so freaking much?
Honestly, it looks like more than it is. I’m not constantly on the road, but like anything else in life, it’s about making the resources for it. Mostly saving a little bit out of each paycheck and throwing down a big YES PLEASE when friends (or friends-of-friends) open their doors to visitors. It helps that my day job lets me rack up miles too.
What is your chronic illness?
It started with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which led to endocrine problems, which led to weight gain, which led to spending six years weighing 300 pounds, which led to having a Duodenal Switch procedure, which led to really really bad anemia, but now it’s mostly monitoring my vitamin levels, trying to get back to body positivity, and managing physical stress symptoms like migraines and atopic dermatitis.
ok miss “faithful,” what is your religion?
I identify as Christian but always want to put disclaimers on it. I’m not “that kind” of Christian. I’m very Buddhist for a Christian, studied world religions in college, and continue to study mythology and story structure. My day job has a lot to do with archetypes and storytelling - but ultimately when I meditate, I’m communing with an image of Christ.
