Res ipsa loquitur

Passport came in the mail today!

One step closer to being two steps farther!

My life has been put on a temporary hold.

I made a huge mistake and did something I should have never done.

My life is now ruined.

I started watching Game of Thrones.

Adventure of a Lifetime

Im going on an Adventure of a Lifetime soon and I couldnt be more excited, but, theres always a but these days, im also kinda scared. 

Ive been working the hardest I ever have and really made an effort to put aside and it finally payed off. Im going to sound lazy but now im tired of working, im tired of planning my life around what I can afford at the time. Im tired of missing out because I had to work. 

So im giving it all up and im going to travel. Im packing my small existence into my pack and going on a Grand Tour of Europe on foot and tent. England to visit family and then France, Portugal, Spain, The French Riviera, Italy, Sicily maybe, and then down to Greece and Pompeii. Its what ive always wanted to do. 

Im scared because its what ive always wanted to do. It may be the only chance I ever have to do this, so I dont want to mess this up. If I mess this up I let myself down, I fail at my own ambitions. Ive worked my whole life to see my bosses accomplish their dreams and then leaving me to have to find work again to keep going. My dreams were always out of reach. 

I dont want to plan anything. Im putting myself out into an unknown land to see what the world has planned for me. I want to wake up with the sun and fall asleep with the moon. I want everyday to be an adventure and to learn new things. I want romance and culture. I want to see the world up close and personal. 

So im going to do it no matter how nervous, no matter how scared, no matter how stressful it may seem and im going to do it for myself. For once im my life ill call the shots, ill come and go as I please and do whats right for me and thats the most exciting thing ive ever done. The more I think about the better it feels..
