I started this blog a few years ago with the intention of documenting my travels. It was a great way to update my friends and family on my experiences without having to repeat myself multiple times, and I’ve already seen a lot of growth and development in both my writing and travel experiences. However, I have decided it is time to redefine this space.
I remain committed to travel and sharing interesting stories and insights from my experiences but I want this blog to be more than a place to list my activities and accomplishments – I want to turn it into a tool I can use for personal growth and development.
I’m currently between phases in my life and I’m trying to figure out what to do next. I recently graduated from college and would like to go back to grad school but I think it’s important to know what I want to get out of it first. It is my hope that with your support this blog can help me do that.
There are many things I want to do in life: travel, live in various countries, gain (and retain) fluency in Arabic, Spanish, and
several many other languages, but most of all I want to contribute something great to this world and the people who inhabit it. I want to make changes and help people move forward – not through some over-beaten “cause” but for a passion of my own. I want to pour my heart and blood and sweat and tears into something and wake up every morning knowing that I’m making a difference and it’s worth it.
I want to live with purpose and passion.
Over the next few weeks you’ll notice I will be posting much more frequently. It is my hope that writing more often will get my thoughts and passions down on paper and out into the world where I can make use of them. I want to develop my thoughts on topics that interest me, discover my passions, and improve my writing in the process. There’s no telling where this will take me, but I know it will be a worthwhile, if at times meandering, journey. Will you join me?
