It was pure euphoria — losing your group of friends in the crowd, putting up with shitty weather and the ever-present mud, dancing with people who were blasted out of their minds, indulging in overpriced food, and submitting yourself to using port-a-potties.
And I was absolutely correct. The rest of the trip was a the perfect spring escape for me — it had unforgettable times with friends, delectable food, fruity frozen drinks at cute bars, a slight allergic reaction to who knows what that caused my eyes to get a little swollen, me slouching in front of millennial art at SFMoMA, a life-changing moment, and puppies!
Anyway, I'm back with another social-distanced activity! I did some internet sleuthing and hashtag stalking to put together this list of murals of El Paso, Texas. Then, I took two days to visit these murals, capture some photos and video, and get dehydrated AF while riding scooters around Downtown (goddamn, it was HAWT).
I take a couple of steps into the back room where the mural is and my eyes immediately go to the back corner. It's dark, but not dark enough to save my eyes from fully catching an older woman and her man ... how do I put this? Well ... he was ... going to town. Yes, that town.
It's 8:30 a.m. and you have a buffet of pan dulce, fruit, coffee, juice, hot chocolate made with Chocolate Abuelita and even papas locas at your disposal. I'm literally salivating just remembering this. Then, it's 9 a.m. and you're in a comfy ass bus with ... just wait ... an OPEN BAR.
So, after not seeing my friend Jaz since February, and knowing that both of us have been responsible and safe, we decided to hike Hueco Tanks State Park and Historic Site on a lovely Saturday morning. And honestly, it turned out to be a great possible activity for people looking for something to do during the pandemic in El Paso, Texas.
Chaotic is the main word that comes to mind when I try to describe what the better part of 2020 has felt like. Adjusting to the new normal has been quite the ride. Between convincing myself that I have COVID-19 probably at least four times throughout the last few months (it was anxiety) and arguing with people in my DMs about some "all lives matter" bullshit, I've been trying harder to actively become a better human.

Hello, my little unicorns of the world! This blog is rising from the dead, y'all! Anyway, I recently traveled to the city of Guanajuato in central México where I got to spend Día de Muertos — you know, only one of the most important holidays in Mexican culture. And I'm breaking this topic up into … Continue reading The Truth About Spending Día de Muertos in Guanajuato, México.
"Fuck no, I don't want to go to Paris." —Me before I went to Paris and loved it. Don't hate me too much. But I really had little to no interest in going to Paris. I would've chosen 50 other cities before choosing Paris. Overrated, smelly and dirty are all things I had heard of … Continue reading Merde! We Flooded an Apartment in Paris!
