My name is Stephen Schwed and I write about relevant to random topics that are important to me and hopefully in turn, to others.  I started this blog because I like the challenges that emerge from writing and self-publishing. I think writing is the best gateway to self-reflection and creative expression. To remind me of this all, here is a quote from novelist, Barbara Kingslover:

“Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer”.

Who are you?

I graduated from Tulane University in May 2017 with a major in psychology and Spanish. I then moved to Armenia, Colombia to teach English for six months and work on perfecting my Spanish. Since then, I have moved base to Chiang Mai, Thailand – where I plan to stay until at least April 2019. While here, I enjoy writing blog posts, teaching English, playing football (soccer), traveling Thailand, cooking mama’s recipes and getting spiritual AF.
