20: She Moved to DC with No Plan? - Lyndsay Carreno
My special guest today is my beautiful and fantastic friend, Lyndsay Carreno (@LyndsCarreno). Lyndsay is a world traveler, political activist, historian, music festival veteran, and proud to say one of my best friends in the whole world. The first time I met Lyndsay was at a concert in Atlanta, and from the moment I met her I knew I wanted to be her friend. Its so crazy looking back on it because now I know her family, we've traveled all around the world together, gone to countless music festivals and concerts together, and she has introduced me to some really awesome people. It's weird to think how much different my life might have been if I had never met her.
Lyndsay moved to Washington, DC six months ago, and didn't know a soul. Just straight hustled from the ground up living in some ridiculous housing environments to now having a ballin' apartment with her roommate, Dana, who makes some tasteful cameos in this episode. She has always wanted to move out there, and I am super duper proud of her for conquering her fears and just going for it. She was also sick the day that we recorded this, and she still totally killed it. I was kinda afraid we wouldn't be able to record when she told me that she got sent home from work since she was sick, and she still rallied through. That's just the kind of person she is.
On this episode we covered a lot of topics. She shared her stories from her childhood growing up in England, the stories of the impact her dad made on her life, her dad passing away last year, and at the end we talked some good ol' american politics. Lyndsay is such a strong woman and I really want to thank her for being so vulnerable and sharing so much with us. Death is never a fun subject, but I'm really glad we were able to talk about it and hopefully listening to this can help some other people who may be dealing with loss right now, too.
