The Magician’s Assistant

If you have to make a choice between doing something and not doing something, always ALWAYS do it.  I’ve never regretted seizing an experience, even if it cost me something.  It’s good for you to be nervous, and overcome it.  You don’t have to wait to do something until your friends will do it with you.

Live music is always worth the money.  Experiencing a wholly different country than the one you were brought up in is always worth the money.

This doesn’t count when you’re buying material objects, clothing, a new blender, Persian rugs.  If you’re not sure if you want it or not, it means you don’t.

This is how I saved enough money to travel Europe for two months (solo for one month), and to make sure I enjoyed my time there to the fullest.

It’s our one year anniversary today.  Heading to India in a few months to see him.  Can’t believe I managed to make it to a year with anyone actually, especially given we’ve  been apart more than we’ve been together.   It helps that he doesn’t try to keep me on a leash.  Encouraged me to travel to Europe, encourages me to go out dancing because he knows that’s what makes me happy.  I’m so lucky to have him.


Heard this song in Serbia.  Vance Joy – Riptide.  His debut album (available this September) is called “God Loves You When You’re Dancing”, which I personally think is a remarkably relevant title.

I have a final exam today, and I am not prepared.  I care more about working as much as I possibly can than school.  School is unimportant.  I figured out the other day that if I work full time for 8 months (at my current job and pay-rate) I can travel for four months.  I can do this every single year.  For the rest of my life.

The only problem is I don’t really want a full time job… I want a job where I get to work whenever I want to, and I can stop working whenever I want to.

Basically I need two jobs.  Then I can work PRN for both of them and still get enough hours.

I JUST WANT TO TRAVEL EVERYWHERE.

AND I DON’T WANT TO END UP STUCK IN NORTH DAKOTA POPPING OUT BABIES EVERY COUPLE OF YEARS.

Sometimes I do want to find someone… but then again I don’t want my wanderlust cured.  I don’t want to depend on someone else for my happiness. I’m fine depending on myself and the future.

and then there’s that heartbeat of lonely lonely lonely in the back of my head saying maybe I can’t do this forever.

screw you heartbeat, maybe I can.
