Welcome to the (perhaps ill-titled) blog EspanYOLO! It’s mainly about how I moved to Valencia, Spain with my friend Danielle in a lightly researched, fairly abrupt fashion. We’re starting an art business here, so plenty of that will be shared, as well as the lessons we learn about business, art, Spain, bureaucracy, life, dogs… basically anything that comes up in the general living of life.
There will also be plenty of journalism sprinkled in, as I’m going to be attempting to freelance. I had taken a long break from writing, having lost my passion for it, but have rediscovered that spark through my feminist activism. In writing piece for BUST magazine about the double standards women face when dealing with online harassment, I stumbled back upon that joy I used to get from writing. Happily, it’s just in time to be in an interesting place, and in a moment in time where more people are looking to get away from the dumpster fires that may or may not be their home countries (I’m looking at you, US and UK.)
Anyway, I have no idea what will happen next, but I am sure it’ll be interesting so I hope you stick around for the ride.
