As my time at my job slowly comes to and end, people are hired to take my place, and thoughts and talk of the future come more and more frequently, I find myself starting to freak out a bit. “So…what are you going to do when you come back?” “What happens when you run out of money?” “You’re going by yourself??” To which I answer aloud, “No idea.” “I’ll figure Continue reading Quote of the Week: Our doubts are traitors
This coming Friday is the day I give my notice at work. *cue internal freak out* I’m giving 3 weeks notice at work, which is a bit more then is generally expected. I like my job and I like my team/coworkers, so I wanted to give them a bit more of a heads up. It’s weird though. It seems like it snuck up on me so fast.

It also is really relevant to the struggle I went through when deciding to quit my job to travel. I liked my job, I liked having a circle of friends and favorite restaurants to frequent. I enjoyed owning books and movies all crammed into Continue reading The Double Life
I once heard a quote that has stuck with me ever since: Now I’m not saying you should never get upset. We all do. It’s a part of human nature and it’s inevitable. Things go wrong.

But don’t dwell on it longer than Continue reading How much is a minute worth?
