About ME

my name is iren, but many over the years have grown accustomed to calling me monkey.  i’ve lived practically my entire life in Houston, TX (home of the candy paint), and i absolutely love my city and my people.  i’ve relocated to the City of Angels (Los Angeles, CA) a few years ago, and though you could say that i’ve lived here long enough to call it home, i really do feel more-so at home when i travel alone in places where the predominant language is not English.

this personal blog is used to express any and every content that fills my heart…unapologetically.  my only request?  write what you feel and spend your life savings on travel.

welcome, my friends 🙂
