Wondering and Wandering I graduated. Now what? Do I live the life I never wanted to live? The one where I move to the city, get a job in a corporate cubicle, and slave away 60 hours a week for $40,000 a year? No thanks. How about 5 years down the road when I settle on a girl I don't truly love, buy the car I don't need, have the marriage that won't last, buy the home I can't afford? No thanks. I want to see things, I want to experience life in every way. This is the only life I've got, I might as well make the most of it and do something I won't foget. So here I am, travelling the world one step at a time. Where I'm going is yet to be decided, how long I'm there is up in the air, but one thing's for sure. Whatever I do, where ever I go, I'm going to be living. You can count on that.

Why I do

So I've got some time to kill and decided I would share a few thoughts... There are some of you out there who don't understand why I'm doing what I'm doing, there are some that envy my situation and there are some that just don't care. I'm reaching out ... Read more >

Wow, it's been 3 days and I'm already in love with the people here. This is one of the 10 poorest countries in the world, and yet the people still smile constantly. They are fans of my beard and Colbys muscles (aren't we all). The food is great, the ... Read more >

England once again

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 7 Sep 2007 | Views [953] | Comments [9]

I'm in England, yet again. It's not because I have some sort of love for this place. It happens to be incredibly expensive, yet the closest thing to a home I have in Europe. I leave in 20 days to venture into the wilds of Nepal and Tibet. I just finished ... Read more >

So the past week I've been in Strubensee at the family's second home. We've been clearing the barn of horse shit, spiders, hay, and ferrets. I'm tired. Not because of the work, but because of the party last night. We did all this cleaning and clearing ... Read more >

So it seems that things are constantly changing, I guess that's life. I'm having difficulty at the moment (again) deciding which direction my life is going to go (again). I've realized that there are two very distinct halves of me. One half says "... Read more >
