On the last day of my quotes challenge, I decided to choose another song. Here is one of my all time favorite songs.

Thoughts on Book: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

I've never been a huge fan of self-help books. My siblings and I come from a small town, population: 3,500. We only recently opened a super-Walmart (which is still kind of small). We don't get to see the big city often, but when we do, our favorite thing to do is go to Barnes & [...]

Travel Blogging Challenge- Week 7 (Inspiration for Traveling)

There are three types of people: those who travel, those who want to travel, and those who don't, can't, and never will. At 23, I'm not quite a kid and not old. People around me are getting jobs, making families, buying houses, etc. I often think to myself... what have I done with my life? [...]

Travel Blogging Challenge – Week  4 (Travel Misadventures) The Time I Almost Died on a Motorbike

Getting into a motor accident in Asia is no joke. I've heard so many horror stories of the ugly traffic, terrible drivers, no road etiquette, no care for street signs. Countless of accidents result in deaths. If the local government happens to be corrupt, the guilty party can even get away unscathed. This week's travel [...]

Having Problems? Keep Calm and Throw a Blanket Over It!

From the creators of Adventure Time, the Bravest Warriors proves to be arguably one of the best shows of all time. It is a mini-episode series that is exclusively on Youtube's Cartoon Hangover channel. In comparison to Adventure Time, the Bravest Warriors is set in the future and revolves around four teenage heroes-for-hire who warp through the [...]

Not Good Enough

I'm not good enough.  There are days where negativity bullies its way in to haunt my mind, jabbing at my frustrations of things that I can't control. It leaves me helpless, my thoughts trapped in a never-ending cycle of discouragement. My inability to do things with my life that I want to because I am [...]

Stop for a Moment: Get Off Your Phone
