"You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it. "

-Robin Williams

Only a few years ago I was living a life that wasn't my own. I thought my path was to take a corporate job at some company where I would really be no one, just a faceless number with my nose to the grindstone. Making money for money’s sake. It was only recently that I came to the conclusion that I can’t live my life for others. I can’t be scared of what they think, especially my parents. Instead, I have my eyes set on traveling. I want to see the intricacies of the world. I want to wake up and know that I am truly living. That I am utilizing the breadth of my body and mind to its full potential. That's why I'm taking a leap of faith and not doing what's expected of me by taking a job in the corporate world. Instead I'm going to make my life an adventure.

That's where this blog comes in. I want to share my experiences with the world. I'm not saying that I am an expert on life, but I want to figure out some stuff and take my readers along the way. Sharing a part of my life on Instagram has been such a fun, rewarding experience, and I can't wait to expand that even further through this blog.
