About Onjel

Spread the love


I’m Onjel (pronounced ahn-jel). I’m a doer of things and a master of naps. But I’m also trying to get my life together as best I can before…I don’t know…it ends.

Not too long ago, I was stressed living in my hometown of Staten Island, NY. I was in debt, going through a rough breakup, and unsure of what I was doing with my life. I always fell one step short of pursuing the things I loved due to fear and a lack of confidence.

I wish I could say I had a huge breakthrough moment that ended all my problems, but I didn’t. Instead, I did what I could, little by little, until I ended up fulfilling one of my dreams of moving to Japan. I’m not 100% there, but I am learning how to do what I can to make progress on my bucket list.

I started this blog as an outlet.

Being stuck in a rut sucks and the daily grind isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

So I wanted to share my journey and hopefully connect with/inspire others as well.

Until next time,
