Learning to See Potential in the Unknown

It’s strange, looking back on a life you had every intention of returning to. It almost feels like someone else’s now. A 9-5 job, full suit (most likely), long commutes, 10 year plans. Some people find comfort in those things, and so did a part of me. It’s kind of like a question stuck on a revolving carousel: Did home change while I was away, or was it me that changed? Maybe both?

Home Life After 5 Months Abroad

I’m currently sitting in the stillness that a house only knows in the early hours of the morning, with the moon just setting and the rooms still quiet. The time change from Thailand to New Jersey has left me wired and ready to take on the day while the rest of the coast is cozy in bed, yet to meet the chill of this December morning.

Lessons from the Daintree Rainforest

This place has given me a lot to think about. It’s given me a lot to write about, too, but finding the words that even begin to scratch the surface of doing it justice has intimidated me from putting my pen to paper (or finger to keys when it’s tyed up later. I’m an old-fashioned soul who loves a good journal. Anyway, I digress.).

Escaping Reality in the Daintree Rainforest

I think New Yorkers are best adept for sleeping in the rainforest. You’d be surprised just how similar the two are, sound-wise, at least. The rainforest isn’t a quiet oasis, but rather an entire city of vibrant life. Hidden beneath the brush are scampering lizards, curious bugs, a few mischevious mice, infamous snakes, and much more (some of which people don’t want to know about).

On Travel + Growth: Traveling with my Parents

This trip has been something that I’ve been looking forward to for almost a full year now. It’s taken tons of time to do the research and save up enough money, and now I’m finally here. Well worth all of the hard work, and certainly not easy, there are a few lessons that I’ve taken away from this experience even during these first few months.

2018: The Year That Changed My Life

I guess you could say it’s a silly title. Every year changes my life in one way or another. In 2016 I chopped off a big chunk of my hair and with that, my insecurities. In 2017 I went to South Africa, Namibia, England, and Greece. I’m still trying to figure out how to sum up 2018 in one sentence. Obviously it’s not going well, so here we are, with an entire blog post instead.
