My self-summary
"Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path."
What I’m doing with my life

Still marked by a rather distinct wanderlust. Ive got tons of stories! I want to enjoy life, the simple stuff. I love to smile. I've been writing a bit lately, and I would like to explore this path farther.
