As the countdown dwindles, I’m reminded of how fast time actually goes. It wasn’t until over a year and a half ago that I set out to navigate a different course in life, and now here I am, less than three weeks away from that path.
The infamous quotes on wanderlust, travel, exploration, and adventure go round in my head as I constantly remind myself that this is a good change. The truth is is that I’m scared, but what I’ve learned in my 29 years of life is that regret is huge and the old cliche’ “you only have one life” is probably the quote I say to myself the most.
I don’t hope that I’ve made the best decision to tackle this ginormous leap in life because I know I’m right.
The one question I get asked most is, “what will you do once you contract is up?”, and I can’t honestly answer that. I live in the moment and like to cross bridges once I get to them. Call it spontaneous, call it ignorant (I never did do well with those whole ‘5 year plan’ assignments in college).

On a side note: my patience is nil when it comes to this blog. Tried to make it cool but I can’t figure it out at this time. A porch beer is calling my name!
