Welcome To The LITMO Life
I’m Anjali, a lawyer that decided to quit my traditional 9-5 job to travel full-time, found love, and got married after 8 weeks of dating! I describe myself as a girl who believes in feminism, LGBTQ rights, non-monogamy, veganism, a child-free life, & the end of racism, writing about it all. All of my writing, though, especially on The LITMO Life, is about love.
The world has become, in many ways, a scary place with too much “otherism.” We’re all actually the same, but we’ve forgotten that – and I truly believe sharing our unique experiences, traveling, and opening our minds again can change our world.
In this blog, I share stories – often my stories, but other peoples’ as well, along with tips, tricks, and how-tos to help you start your own brand new adventure – whether it’s a life of travel, finding love, or just stepping outside your comfort zone.
So what’s LITMO? When I was in college, I used to text my dad with my several worries. “What if I don’t get into law school?” “What do I even really want to do with my life?” “This person was already making millions by the age of 23!”
My dad, being the wise and patient man he was, answered each and every one of these texts with the following message: “Live in the moment only.” What he was trying to impart to me was that while it was fine to attempt to plan for the future, it was critical to realize that the only moment we actually had was the one we were in.
As I got older, and my worries continued and even grew in size, my dad continued to remain patient and wise. His texts, however, got progressively shorter until he was just texting me back “LITMO.”
Today, I believe strongly in the idea that humans should be chasing their own bliss – in order to best figure out how to contribute to making the world a better place. For me, a big part of that is learning to live in the moment with an awareness of my fellow humans and their stories. This blog is for anyone that wants to design their own life to be happy – but also help change the world.
Welcome to the LITMO Life – let’s start living in the moment together.
If I said "wedding night," what you would think of first? Sex, of course. If you're like most people, the first thing you'd think of when I said "wedding night" was "all the fucking." And all the fucking, especially wedding night fucking, is really nice - don't get me...
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that one Monday before our wedding, my own personal superhero Jonathon blew off his beginning-of-the-week plans to come over and naked tie dye with a freaked-out bride (me). I also promised that you'd hear about it later. Well, it's later...
Jonathon and I got married after 8 weeks of dating. Well, actually, we probably get married after less than 8 weeks of dating. You see, the trajectory of our romance was to meet at Barnes & Noble for a "coffee thing", then meet up a week later after I got back...

I've been asked by many people, many times since publicly announcing my new journey exactly how to quit your job and travel the world. Not that I'm an expert by any means (I only just did it, we'll see how successful I am!), but many people want to know how I think...
