Wonderful life of traveling through the eyes of a 23-year-old girl

"Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’"
Lena Dunham, in an interview with The Guardian (via coyotegold)

Going over old pictures and it’s hard to believe that a year has gone by since I graduated school, went to Brazil for the first time, and then moved to Montreal. Moving to Montreal was one of the best choices I ever made and I wouldn’t change anything about my experience there this past year. The struggles I went through, the people I met ( and probably shouldn’t have met) , the jobs I had, everything has led me to this moment where I am now. 2013 has been an amazing year. I traveled more than I expected and I am grateful for that. I went to Brazil, Colombia, Spain, South Africa and back to Florida for the holidays.

iSo much happens in a year and then again nothing happens at all. I find myself laying down in the same bed I did a year ago, contemplating my future and worrying about moving to Montreal. Now it’s all happening again with my move to South Korea, but this time I have less worries and more things to look forward to. I don’t know what it was, but my trip to Brazil changed the way I viewed life and taught me that sometimes not having expectations can really make you appreciate and enjoy moments more. My goal now is to travel as much of this Earth as possible and take in all that traveling has to offer.
