A few words of wisdom







“Go be that starving Artist you’re afraid to be. Open up that journal and get poetic finally. Volunteer. Suck it up and travel. You were not born here to work and pay taxes. You were put here to be part of a vast organism to explore and create. Stop putting it off. The world has much more to offer than what’s on 15 televisions at TGI Fridays. Take pictures. Scare people. Shake up the scene. Be the change you want to see in the world. You’ll thank yourself for it.”
-Jason Mraz

  5. I couldnt agree more. I think I have taken it all a little far in the past year and a half and I am secretly yearning for home and taken-for-granted routines and familiar faces and loved ones, but gosh traveling is a sweet thing to do.
