[00:00:02.640] Hey, my name is Elyse Robinson, I’m a Black American woman that lives in Mexico.
[00:00:07.000] Why do I live in Mexico?
[00:00:08.480] Because my mother passed away from blood cancer in November 2016.
[00:00:13.040] So I quit my whole life to help take care of her and my family.
[00:00:17.000] And so I had nothing left.
[00:00:19.440] I decided to hop a flight and go more
[00:00:21.400] in the country, didn’t think I would want to stay forever.
[00:00:25.040] I would just be in like a month, three months, come back home.
[00:00:28.800] But I live in Mexico City. Called my father out,
[00:00:33.800] tell him I wasn’t coming back home and I’m going into my fifth year now, so.
[00:00:40.760] So the rest is history.
[00:00:42.400] That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
[00:00:46.120] Please be sure to check out the blog, ElyseRobinson.com.
[00:00:49.640] Be sure to

[00:01:04.680] BeAForeigner has been put on hold because of covid.
[00:01:09.560] For any of those who thinks covid is not real, it is real.
[00:01:17.840] So people are not moving around, so I put that on hold to work on other
[00:01:21.760] projects that have been very successful, so I can’t complain about that too much.
[00:01:25.400] I guess
[00:01:27.120] I will speak about that later.

[00:01:46.640] Let’s let’s get right into it, because I haven’t done an update in a very
[00:01:50.040] long time, so let me tell ya what’s going on with me, what’s going on with Mexico,
[00:01:57.040] just just life in general.
[00:02:01.720] I came back home to visit my family in December for Christmas,
[00:02:07.920] pretty much the only place I go is flying at this point.
[00:02:12.880] I don’t really go anywhere else.
[00:02:16.720] And so
[00:02:18.720] I came in December and my sister decided that she was going
[00:02:22.560] to take one of these travel contracts were covered.
[00:02:25.320] So like I said, for those, I don’t think that covid is very real.
[00:02:28.680] My sister is dealing with it on a daily basis when she goes to work.
[00:02:33.880] And this is very bad.
[00:02:38.200] I won’t say where my sister went to, but.
[00:02:42.360] She took a travel contract, you making bank? She’s making good their money.
[00:02:50.280] And so I am here until April,
[00:02:56.160] April, unless she decides to cut her contract.
[00:02:59.160] Sure. And
[00:03:02.120] so I’m in Houston until April.
[00:03:06.080] Fun, fun, helping with my nephew and my father and.
[00:03:13.240] Eating all-American foods and spending all
[00:03:15.720] this expensive ass American money are so fun times, fun times.
[00:03:23.600] Houston is wide open.
[00:03:25.160] I can go wherever I want to.
[00:03:26.640] But like I said, I have insider information.
[00:03:30.160] I get information before it hits the streets.
[00:03:33.000] Therefore, I don’t go nowhere. I don’t go nowhere.
[00:03:37.560] I suffer on the airplane.
[00:03:39.640] I will be visiting my my sister with my nephew
[00:03:45.160] next month, next month for spring break.
[00:03:48.440] So that’ll be fun because I love I love the city she’s in.
[00:03:57.320] There is that, and that’s why I haven’t
[00:03:59.120] been giving you any updates, because there’s no updates to really give.
[00:04:01.800] As for Mexico,
[00:04:06.200] I will go back home at the end of this
[00:04:08.800] month, February, because I’ve got business I got
[00:04:12.240] to take care of, check on my house, make sure it’s cool.
[00:04:15.960] Everything you know,
[00:04:17.040] like that runs some pipes because let’s get fucked up if you don’t do anything.
[00:04:21.560] So check on my plants, check on my family that’s there.
[00:04:26.240] So make sure everything’s good.
[00:04:35.240] I can give you the Mexico numbers,
[00:04:38.600] shit, I meant to write it down, but I know we’re over a hundred and sixty
[00:04:42.000] one thousand deaths at this point and today is where February 7th.
[00:04:47.800] Yeah, February seven, so as of February 7th,
[00:04:50.560] we’re at one hundred and over one hundred sixty one thousand as I looked at it this
[00:04:54.440] morning, but I didn’t think to write it down.
[00:04:56.480] I really wasn’t planning on doing
[00:04:58.000] a YouTube or podcasts or any of that stuff, so.
[00:05:04.000] I’m in a mood, I feel like talking.
[00:05:06.600] So I decided to hop on real quick and and give you some updates,
[00:05:12.120] trying to think anything else I need to update you on.
[00:05:14.480] I just want to make sure that y’all know I’m alive out here and I’m OK.
[00:05:19.240] Speaking of, I went and got my hair cut and this fucked up damn haircut.
[00:05:26.000] As you can see, a shorter and it’s like lopsided and choppy.
[00:05:28.960] I’m thinking about it all the way off, but.
[00:05:33.200] Oh, no, just leave it like it is.
[00:05:36.440] Anyway, I went to the barbershop and it was in my regular barber.
[00:05:40.680] It was emergency barber.
[00:05:42.240] Y’all know how that goes as black people.
[00:05:46.000] And I do came in there and he was coughing and Putin, as my grandma was saying.
[00:05:55.600] And I caught the flu,
[00:05:58.680] I caught the flu, I didn’t catch covid, so.
[00:06:05.760] I guess I can delve into that I flew and.
[00:06:12.960] Yeah, caught the flu at the barbershop.
[00:06:17.760] I had the flu,
[00:06:20.080] but it wasn’t like
[00:06:22.560] anything like out of the ordinary, I don’t know, but they said that 50
[00:06:27.120] percent of flus do not have symptoms, kind of like covid, so.
[00:06:34.640] Well, I think I was bother’s my nose, and it’s it’s better now.
[00:06:38.640] It felt like I told my itemizes, it felt like burn in hay or something.
[00:06:43.360] I don’t know. But it was just like burn.
[00:06:46.160] And that was pretty much the only symptom I had.
[00:06:50.800] I had a little bit of chest pain because,
[00:06:52.440] you know, the flu can potentially affect your lungs.
[00:06:55.920] But I just thought that was after effects of covid, you know what I’m saying?
[00:07:01.840] But yeah, my nose is burning.
[00:07:04.920] And so they were like, you don’t have any symptoms when I went
[00:07:07.960] to go because I went and got a Colvert test and
[00:07:12.840] they were like, you don’t have any symptoms.
[00:07:14.360] I’m like, my I feel perfectly fine.
[00:07:17.640] They’re like, oh, OK.
[00:07:19.560] Well, they were like, you don’t have coffee, but you got the flu.
[00:07:21.680] I’m like the flu.
[00:07:25.320] I had the flu.
[00:07:28.280] I might have gave it to some other people. Who knows?
[00:07:32.240] I don’t know.
[00:07:33.040] But somebody gave it to me and I think it was somebody at the barbershop anyways.
[00:07:38.480] So for those that says that the flu has
[00:07:41.640] gone nowhere, the flu is here because I caught it caught in a couple of weeks ago.
[00:07:48.920] There’s that, and it was funny because my sister’s co-worker was like,
[00:07:52.440] nobody’s caught the flu that I know of, and she was like, well, ding, ding, ding.
[00:07:56.640] And this is bullshit because she got it
[00:08:02.120] and I got the paperwork to prove it.
[00:08:06.200] but yeah, it must not have been a very bad flu or maybe just affected me differently.
[00:08:11.840] I don’t know. But that dude that came in there,
[00:08:13.960] he was definitely coughing and he was going through with me.
[00:08:17.640] On the other hand,
[00:08:18.280] I really had no symptoms from my nose and a little pain in my chest.
[00:08:21.760] So I knew these Mexican vitamins be working.
[00:08:25.240] I’ll be working.
[00:08:26.480] So that’s one reason why I need to go back
[00:08:28.400] home, cause I got to I got to fill up on my bike.
[00:08:32.440] So because I take that every day.
[00:08:34.520] Every day.
[00:08:37.200] Other than that,
[00:08:39.360] what else has been going on with me?
[00:08:44.400] if I know I well, I was consulting, I was consulting when I was in Mexico.
[00:08:52.720] Doing cloud stuff, I mean,
[00:08:54.560] if you don’t know about the cloud research, because it’s like the new thing
[00:08:57.080] now, it’s not new, it’s not new, but everybody is trying to get on the cloud.
[00:09:01.120] So a lot of money to be made in it.
[00:09:03.920] And so that’s what I’ve been focusing on.
[00:09:08.520] So if I know like I’ve always loved EITE,
[00:09:13.240] but I couldn’t find them job in it, so I switched to accounting,
[00:09:17.840] became auditor, which is fine because I love auditing.
[00:09:20.760] It’s fun, especially when you find fraud. Right.
[00:09:26.160] fall back on my IT skills and started
[00:09:28.960] working with that and realized that I loved it.
[00:09:31.520] I really loved that shit again.
[00:09:34.400] I’ve been networking and mingling and I.T. and shit and
[00:09:41.080] pounding the pavement.
[00:09:44.400] I applied to grad school in the States
[00:09:49.280] because, like I said, I did not get a computer science degree.
[00:09:52.520] So I’ve been thinking about going back to school
[00:09:56.360] and getting my degree in computer science, applied to some programs.
[00:10:00.800] I got into one top 25 school.
[00:10:04.480] I’m so proud of myself or a person that
[00:10:07.160] barely graduated high school, who barely graduated college.
[00:10:10.600] I did pretty damn well for myself.
[00:10:14.280] You can go listen to that podcast,
[00:10:16.080] the last YouTube video on that one where I talk about that.
[00:10:21.680] So, yeah, I still have a lot of decisions.
[00:10:25.040] I’m waiting on one decision at a fully
[00:10:28.880] paid for scholarship and master’s degree program.
[00:10:35.440] So I’m waiting on that for this week. I’m excited.
[00:10:38.400] I would actually have to move back to the States, though, didn’t I tell you?
[00:10:42.000] I said I was looking for another adventure, so.
[00:10:46.440] That I’m scared, I’m scared because if I
[00:10:49.200] get it, I’m like, I wanted to wait, but it’s coming back home.
[00:10:53.960] Home? I don’t know.
[00:10:56.200] I don’t know.
[00:10:58.000] So decisions, decisions.
[00:11:01.680] I launched news and I te like I have had lots of things paid for.
[00:11:07.840] Like I recently got two certifications.
[00:11:09.840] It was worth twenty five hundred dollars.
[00:11:12.160] Got that pay for working on my certified information systems auditor.
[00:11:20.160] Certification right now, and that’s paid for,
[00:11:23.560] and I could probably pay for a whole bunch more certifications with all the stuff I
[00:11:28.760] have gotten, so I’m working on that because is it consultant?
[00:11:33.360] I need the certifications.
[00:11:37.760] Although in Mexico, I don’t think anyone cares about certifications in America.
[00:11:41.680] And if I want to stack my dough.
[00:11:45.880] And get to my retirement goal.
[00:11:48.960] I’m going to have to do some consulting and I need those certifications, so.
[00:11:57.600] That’s what I’ve been working on, so I’m very involved in the black white
[00:12:01.440] community right now, and that’s why I launched a news and I.T..
[00:12:07.720] To help those like myself that are trying to get started or upgrade their skills
[00:12:12.320] and I’ve had lots of success with it, I’m really pat myself on the back with it.
[00:12:16.920] I have been featured on a podcast
[00:12:19.240] that comes out on the 17th, so I will post about that on my blog when it comes out.
[00:12:25.600] And I’m also doing an event on the 16th where I talk about news and I.T..
[00:12:31.240] And I’m so I’m so proud of myself,
[00:12:34.640] especially since be a foreigner, Dotcom has been detained thanks to covid.
[00:12:42.080] Oh, I cried some real tears about being a foreigner, Dotcom, because.
[00:12:47.800] I mean, I’ve I literally moved to a whole
[00:12:50.440] nother city just to work on it and to launch it, and it’s been revised and.
[00:12:57.080] It just basically like when and where,
[00:13:00.960] but I launched NEWSNIGHT and it took off the first day I launched it,
[00:13:07.320] which is like really hurting my soul, but maybe before Dotcom was too early.
[00:13:14.600] Maybe it’s not my destiny.
[00:13:16.360] I don’t know, but.
[00:13:19.160] I’m a I’m going to do something with it,
[00:13:21.640] because people have told me that, if anything, they would buy my course on,
[00:13:26.400] you know, moving to another country, becoming an entrepreneur, becoming
[00:13:32.360] getting a work visa, whatever you need to do.
[00:13:35.800] And I’ve done all that.
[00:13:37.760] So I’m experienced on it.
[00:13:39.640] So I need to get on that at the minimum.
[00:13:42.400] So when.
[00:13:44.560] The world does open back up, I’m ready for that, so.
[00:13:53.040] Yeah, I need to work on that, so
[00:13:56.640] stay tuned for that and my other project, since I’ve been researching Scholarship’s
[00:14:01.440] is full scholarship STG, I found a domain name which
[00:14:06.400] just meant to be, I guess,
[00:14:09.720] because, yeah, that’s that’s top of the line domain name right there.
[00:14:13.800] So I will be launching full tuition scholarships around the world.
[00:14:20.560] Because people are people are hungry for that, too.
[00:14:24.040] So we’re going to launch that since I’m already doing the research.
[00:14:28.000] So basically my thing is solve your own
[00:14:32.440] problems while also solving other people’s problems.
[00:14:37.600] There you go.
[00:14:41.120] Trying to think anything else, grad school.
[00:14:45.760] My new found passion of Tity
[00:14:50.160] and I got I got a little boy toy that I like to program with, so I should be.
[00:14:55.040] That’s always fun. Always fun with him, I.
[00:15:00.680] Let me see what else, um.
[00:15:07.120] I miss Mexico so much as cold here in Houston, and it’s nice and toasty
[00:15:12.400] back home and it’s killing me every day, I try not to look at the weather.
[00:15:16.680] Hmm. I should go outside today because it’s
[00:15:18.760] actually sunny and it looks warm, but I doubt it is.
[00:15:26.600] Yeah, covid is still real.
[00:15:28.520] I don’t know what else to say about that.
[00:15:32.560] As far as I know,
[00:15:35.400] yeah, I don’t think I talked about it
[00:15:36.640] in Mexico, I would be the last on the list to get the shot because of my age.
[00:15:41.640] And Mexico was talking about that.
[00:15:44.960] Foreigners might have to pay for their own shots.
[00:15:47.000] So I guess I can go and get the shot.
[00:15:50.640] Like, why would I pay for my own fucking shot?
[00:15:52.480] No, you make no damn sense.
[00:15:54.040] Well, I guess I can come back home and get it, so.
[00:15:56.760] Oh, no.
[00:16:00.320] this flying, this new rule of flying back into the states and needing a covert test
[00:16:05.440] is really going to fuck me up because like I said,
[00:16:10.840] Mexico doesn’t test.
[00:16:13.760] The tests are not readily available.
[00:16:15.920] I’ll just keep saying that I’ve tried twice when I actually had covid
[00:16:22.360] and I couldn’t get a test.
[00:16:25.960] And then I thought I had covered again.
[00:16:29.800] And they laughed at me.
[00:16:31.120] They laughed at me at the emergency room was like, we don’t test.
[00:16:34.480] So we’re like a test is six thousand pesos, which is like.
[00:16:40.920] Three hundred dollars so cheap as I’ve seen it is one 50, at least in my city,
[00:16:47.040] but my friend tells me that you can get it for cheaper in other parts of Mexico.
[00:16:51.920] And that is confirmed because I looked on the app for Mexico City
[00:16:56.480] and it’s fifty dollars and they actually come to the house and come test you.
[00:17:01.360] I don’t know what’s going on with my city.
[00:17:04.080] I really don’t know.
[00:17:05.520] But my city has a lot of rich people in it though, so maybe.
[00:17:10.560] I don’t know.
[00:17:11.760] I don’t know.
[00:17:13.280] I’ll see if my my family can hook me up with with a test, a free test.
[00:17:19.680] And if you hear anything in the background, my sister got a puppy
[00:17:21.960] for my nephew and I’ve been taking care of it.
[00:17:24.240] So fun.
[00:17:26.840] Hush, hush.
[00:17:30.960] Like a little Chihuahua, my thing.
[00:17:33.680] She’s cute, she’s good, she’s good now, but I’ve been taking care of a little my.
[00:17:40.240] And like, I need to go clean up shit right
[00:17:42.000] now, like the poop, that’s part of why whining,
[00:17:45.240] I tell her, hold on,
[00:17:47.360] because I’m picking it up right now.
[00:17:50.120] Oh, my God killer.
[00:17:52.400] So I get off here, I will clean it up and
[00:17:56.760] yeah, because she’s still a puppy and she
[00:17:58.320] had all our shots yet, so we can’t let her outside.
[00:18:01.080] Plus it’s cold and she don’t want to go outside.
[00:18:03.720] So it’s like a catch 22,
[00:18:05.880] like we try to put her outside one time and she was like, fuck you.
[00:18:10.800] Like What are you doing.
[00:18:12.000] Got me out here in this cold.
[00:18:13.440] I’m not going to the bathroom.
[00:18:15.440] So she’s sitting in the house and in my house.
[00:18:18.680] I worry about it, but I do get to clean it up because I’m living here right now, so.
[00:18:26.840] Let me see anything else.
[00:18:31.360] So, yeah,people keep asking me,
[00:18:34.560] am I going to come back home and I’m like, hmm, I don’t know how to add to that.
[00:18:40.640] I also got into an online program, but I would need the scholarship money.
[00:18:46.520] And so I’m waiting on all of these
[00:18:48.720] decisions and it’s killing me like it’s my life is in limbo right now,
[00:18:54.320] like I’m back home, home, waiting on decisions going on with my life.
[00:19:03.680] But I’m excited for my future because it’s very bright and I’m excited about all
[00:19:09.840] these things that I’ve been winning and all these opportunities I’ve been getting.
[00:19:15.720] So, oh, I have another talk that I’m going to do to
[00:19:21.440] see the three talks, three talks.
[00:19:24.080] I didn’t think that I would be this successful at this point, but.
[00:19:28.360] Somebody loves me out there.
[00:19:31.840] Other than that, I guess I have nothing
[00:19:34.320] else, I’m alive, I’m safe, I’m happy, I’m healthy.
[00:19:38.320] I’m here with my family.
[00:19:43.640] Again, covid is real
[00:19:46.520] for those that still don’t think that it’s not real.
[00:19:53.400] Be safe out there if you’re traveling.
[00:19:56.560] If you’re out here doing shit today,
[00:19:58.560] Super Bowl Sunday, so case is about to go up and desco and go.
[00:20:04.800] It’s ridiculous here, so.
