Hey y’all. This is episode number 82. My name is Elise Robinson and I am a black American woman who lives in Mexico. Why do I live in Mexico because my mother passed away for blood cancer in November 2016. And so I quit my whole life in order to take care of my mother and my family. And so I didn’t have anything left and so I decided to go more in another country and explore a new place I’d never been before. And so I settled on Mexico City. You always hear about Cancun part of our yard and Cabo but you never hear much about Mexico City. So let me go check it out. Did it Little did I know that Mexico City is an amazing place amazing this month. I don’t know if it’s my first and my second love La La is an amazing place to, but ended up falling in love the place caught my father after mother Tom, I won’t come home. It’s like okay, just make sure you’re saving your happy spirit I you know, and the rest is history. And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

pretty sharp amounts of weight. Eat normies plant teams I don’t know how does got addicted to them, but I’m addicted now. I don’t know. There’s this fish restaurant where I give them although I try To get some delivered second cook them myself I’ve got waste of freaking money and it brought me bananas. So I’m gonna try again today and see how that works. And plus I can cook them myself make sure they’re more healthier than what the restaurant is giving me because I don’t know where they’re using. Um But yeah, like I’ve been putting all the weight away to

I wish I knew how much I weighed them. At my heaviest I was 155 but that was pure muscle that was muscley as a woman I was hitting Waste every day. Some man complaining and complaining goes with

age territory and eaten right?

And I did not know that plantation was like potatoes and no wonder why you put on way to fallen on plantations because of felling as our being eaten him shit smells younger. But part of my culture, some song eating sheets like that. I just I actually just found out about them. But I’m going to Mexico My friend was I hear there’s some plants ain’t going to fuck his back. No plantations is my grandparents on both sides of Southern planetariums. So I’m putting Monica right now. Um, as my allergies. I had an asthma attack Sunday morning, early Sunday morning, which I’m mad about because I did not get my ass up and exercise. Because if I don’t get my ass out of here by 630 there’s too many damn people out and I ain’t gonna deal with it. So row It was about 515 ish. And I had asthma attack was really stuffy in here I don’t even know why because we didn’t even worry. But not in a way this is sprinkled a little bit also like my friend told me it did rain I was like why didn’t hear it. So it was really stuffy. I have my finger on I can’t see but the air conditioner on I wish I could but I’ll wake up sick. So I just can’t as I woke about on the day asleep asthma attack and puff my asthma pump and then I have some of the most severe cramps I’ve had in a long time. When I was younger, I used to miss school and work because of cramps like I miss a whole day or two just clinical Williams and birth control saved my life taking appeal, so I do not knock the appeal at all, because I never got pregnant, so not too bad. But yeah, I haven’t had cramps like that a long time. So I guess I forgot what it felt like I was like, I got to go to the hospital bruh Take me to the hospital. And I thought about it like, I can’t go to the hospital might get the world. So if Asperger knock it out, so do you know find out so this little frames

that’s what’s been going on with me. I, um, none of the servers here have been disrupted. Knock on wood or something. My lifestyle hasn’t changed much before it is. I was doing the same stuff. I’m doing now. So I’m blessed. I can’t complain. No my point okay Ha. So my point okay. And so I can’t complain too much here. Mexico reopen today with the school starting so let’s see how that goes I’m gonna give it two three weeks before

I start venturing out a lot

I definitely have to hit the tattoo shop to get my piercing change because it’s just hanging on by a thread here. It’s not moving so I’m guessing I’m fine for now. I’ll see me go man Petey and I need a haircut. Oh man, I’m looking so bad today is actually kind of cute. actually kind of cute. I was thinking about coming off this weekend, but I was gonna wait it out. Wait out. class. I don’t want to look like a 12 year old child. Like people when I’m bald people really I am a 12 year old child. When I get on the bus, I was getting money back and I’m like, why am I getting changed back?

We thought I was a child.

And I want to go sign up for this

class. And he was like, Okay, well, I need your parents permission. My parents permission for I am a 33 year old boys woman. What are some parents permission? He was like, I need your parents permission. I’m like, no you don’t he’s into a child. Oh no, sir. How would I look at my fucking ID says I’m 33 Oh man, look at the date. He was asked my child he was in shock. So I try to keep hair. So I look more mature and older because I’m bald headed me up to much higher ridiculous and plus being bony and skinny probably don’t peel the tiniest fuck.

probably likes a little African child, little Somali child I like to call myself a small child. So I don’t know. I got a need to keep hearing I in child care office start all over again. Um, my friend told me that a man flew to Chicago for his daughter’s graduation.

And he came back and

perished. Know why anyone want to do that? So rip, but I guess people are seriously not taking this serious enough. I mean, I know. I know for a fact there’s a lot of lies out there that my system works in healthcare. So I have a clear tunnel vision on what’s really going on. So as my uncle He works in healthcare too.

I mean, it’s better to be safe than sorry. is better to be safe than sorry.

I don’t know why people are defying

the Fine. I won’t say law, but I guess it is technical kind of law. You know what I’m saying?


🤐 BaseLang - Unlimited SPANISH lessons for $149 per month

I don’t know. As for the stats here in Mexico 2075 cases since yesterday 132 deaths, and the deaths have dropped as of today. They have been hold steady around 250 cases have went up a lot, but I’m not really worried about cases. Because I think I believe at this point, like, a lot of people are the one infected, going to get infected and seen a lot of us are asymptomatic. Amina do a no cure ain’t no remedy for the shit. So, I mean cases don’t really matter, right? And

the tests are accurate

and says given a false negative or false positive.


anything is not enough. So how to testimonies people? Lastly, yeah, I really think they test them out and people like that

they used to work for the government

saying competence and I’ve had my pee in my blood go missing before and they had to redo samples. So my sample might be getting mixed up with a Todd’s from, you know, a testimony. So I’m not really concerned about the cases at this point.


Here in Mexico, all the stories that I have seen the people were obese, high blood pressure, hypertension, as you want to call it, diabetes, the sugars. One lady that was in her 20s had heart disease. I don’t know she was born that way or she developed differently obese and other issues but that’s the stats here in Mexico. I haven’t heard of the so called healthy person passing away here. Not one bit. They’ve all had one or more of those things. Unfortunately. So if you if you are obese, overweight and healthy, change it up now. You still got time. still have time. That’s why I got my ass out here. Exercising for my loans are probably weakest From being having these allergies and oddest asthma in adults I’ve been trying to build them up they don’t take much doesn’t take much cut out so this student at the bottom of me drinking my water would help me drop 50 pounds alone um and i only exercise for 20 minutes because you don’t mean much if you do when they write

but you know on the topic of fearlessness and

that’ll be it.


just got an Erica Badu made a performance was it two weekends ago and so they were talking to each other and so something that stuck with me Was I believe it was Erykah Badu to say to Jill Scott, that How did she get to a place that she want to share her poetry? And she thanked her for for, you know, showing the world her soul. Basically, that’s what it is your soul, baring your soul your gifts. And so she was like, yeah, you know, I just

do what I do.

And so when I moved to Mexico, I, I struggled with baring my soul and my story to the world. You know, if you Google My names, I come up, right

and you know,

especially being a sexist Scorpio. Like we we have a hard time with share sharing certain things of ourselves and so it’d be all been your business, your business, but don’t be in our business. And so as you can see I’m here in the corner you can see my apartment, you can see nothing else about what’s going on here. So in private to an extent, but I wanted to share my story because number one, a lot of people don’t do what I do or have done what I’ve did done. Number two, not a lot of black people have done what I’ve done. Number three, not a lot of black American people have done what I’ve done. Some I am a descendant of a slave need them far removed from being slaves especially. And so, you know, we have done some amazing things amazing things, but we still have first, unfortunately. And I know a lot of people in my position and they don’t share their story at all. So I wanted to add to the history books

🎖️ Allianz - Don’t let a canceled flight, stress you out…get travel insurance.

last time because it was in the middle. It’s kind of personal kind of personal. Maybe I’ll talk about that another another time. But first time I realized I was fearless and I didn’t give a fuck. Because I mean, a lot. A lot of fearlessness is not given a fuck. Okay, worry about what other people don’t saying. And that’s a whole other topic in itself. Make a seagull and haters you’re gonna have the people that’s gonna tell you

no evil hand people don’t call you crazy.

You don’t have people that don’t tell you that ain’t gonna work.

But yet motherfuckers was out here selling pet rocks.

🎖️ Allianz - Don’t let a canceled flight, stress you out…get travel insurance.

grades didn’t matter.


So I only had three classes and one semester. I didn’t do my second semester for high school.

And so

I realized that the people I was fucking we’re kicking away did not matter. It wasn’t no matter after high school kid with a Momo. And we I know people that still do they said that high school friends but I knew I wasn’t because they went on my level like I was grown now make sure not to say cylinder when I was growing. So, but now they wouldn’t try to do them with a life. They wouldn’t be trying to go to college. So I plus

done a solo vacation before when I was 20. I went to Dallas by myself to check out this college. That did end up going but anyway I guess I just had to see again and plus I was traveling for work by myself. So I don’t know where my mind was on why, why why I need to go on vacation by myself. Mostly I could do it, see if I could do that by myself. But anyway, so I ended up going to Vegas by myself for three or four days and a helicopter ride on the Grand Canyon and you know, all that, all that good stuff. And I loved it.

loved it, it got good to me.

So I went to Hawaii because I wanted to see the volcanoes and I did
