Hey Everyone, I feel all of yall's pain. I just made the decision yesterday to quit school and put my second degree back on hold for another few years. Im 23, got my taste of traveling while I was in the US Navy and lived in England for three years, went to some 14 countries in 4 years and loved every minute of it. It was the only time in my life that I was truly happy. Ive been lying to myself the past year and a half almost now since moving back to the States that I am happy with where I am in my life right now. To tell the truth Im quite miserable. I graduate in December with my associates degree and then I am going to work my ass off for the next 6-8 months to pay off my debts and save up for a plane ticket to Oz to meet up with my mates from England who are all wonderlust travellers like myself and having the time of their lives. Im too young to think about settling down and thinkin of the future. I intend to have the most fun as humanly possible in the next few years to come.

Travelling to me is leaving all you know behind and going out in search of what life really is. so many people are in a race to get through school, get married, have 2.5 kids and get into the highest amount of debt as they possibly can and never relly stop to smell the roses. travelling gives you the complete freedom to go and do whatever your heart contends. When you really think about it, if you arn't doing what makes you happy in life, you arn't really living are you? Im gonna sell off most of all of my "material life" and finally live the life I have been dreaming of since I was just a kid, with only a backpack on my back and one pair of walking shoes, school can wait a little longer.

See yall on the road!
