Why Living In Mexico Will Ruin You

I hate to admit it but living in Mexico has ruined me to the point of no return. I don’t know what to do about it. I’m pissed and confused. Here is why living in Mexico will ruin you too.

Take A Chill Pill

I am so chill now, y’all! Too damn chill. All I want to do is lay around in a hammock soaking up the Mexican sun while casually shoving my face with tacos and drinking horchata all day. This will absolutely happen to you if you make the decision to escape the US and come and live in Mexico. Once you break free from that 9 to 5 you hate and come over to the fun side of the wall, you’ll find yourself chill as f*ck! It is contagious how chill this place is. Like seriously. I only need to work an hour a day and then the rest of the day is Tacoooosssss!!!

It Is Time To Talk

One of the most shocking things I discovered the first full day I was in Mexico was how everyone was actually talking to each other. They weren’t staring at their phone screens mindlessly scrolling through Facebook trying to find out if Becky was going to complain about her lying cheating husband again for like the 500th time. Nope. In Mexico you will actually have to talk to people face to face. Scary right? Your phone won’t seem so important anymore and since you will already be super chill those dreadful emails from the boss you hate won’t be calling your name either.

Save Face

My face freaking hurts every-single-day. You want to know why? It is because I can’t stop smiling. I am completely ruined. My resting bitch face is gone and my face is frozen in this permanent smile because I am so damn happy to be living in Mexico. Your face will hurt too. It sucks. I have tried to warn you over and over again about this country. Just read the 5 Dangers of Mexico You Didn’t know by clicking here if you don’t believe me.

No more resting bitch face thanks to Mexico

Sleepless Nights

I haven’t slept a full night since moving to Mexico. Who am I kidding? I have a toddler so I haven’t slept in over two years but let’s get back to the topic of why living in Mexico will ruin you. Mexicans love to celebrate. In all our travels, I have not met any others who celebrate as much as Mexicans do. There favorite way of showing off another celebration is fireworks. It doesn’t matter what time of day or night it is, fireworks will be going off which then makes every single dog in the entire country start barking which still isn’t as loud as the neighbor’s music.  Times up sorry. I have to go light this firework and partayyyyy!!

  1. What suggestions can you provide for someone who wants to experience the joy and happiness you’ve found in Mexico but on a trial basis to make sure its right for them? I’m a single male from Chicago and I’m so over the corporate life. Thanks in advance.

  2. Just came across your blog and loved it! I’m a single, experienced black woman who moved down here in April. I’m enjoying myself but it’s been hard making friends or meeting people. Probably doesn’t help that I’m an introvert, but I’ve been pushing myself. Everyone’s coupled up. Anyway keep up the good work. Thinking about taking a trip to Mexico City.
