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.

IRELAND | Tuesday, 23 January 2007 | Views [753] | Comments [4]

Here is the basic rundown of the past few days, got on the bus from Limerick to Listowel, got picked up by Caitlin and Ed who are incredibly wonderful people. I felt instantly at ease with them. Caitlin cooked an excellent Mexican meal for me, yeah, I'm gonna miss mexican food. The next day, yesterday, we went to Banna Beach and I took some lovely photos. Had another wonderful meal and were off to bed. Caitlin was worried that I wasn't getting enough sleep and is doing a wonderful job of mothering me. She gave me an Ambien (sp) last night and I finally slept like a baby. Today I am at the library writing, checking mail and printing off my account status to show to the Garda (police) that I have enough money and wont "be a burden to Irish soceity". More later,

We want pictures! :) No rush though. How was visiting a real Irish Pub? Hope you didn't get into a brawl or get thrown out. I'm so glad the people are wonderful over there. Miss you tons. My first production here opens in two weeks, my parents, brother, grandparents, etc. are all coming to see me even though it's not a huge part I have. Are you staying in Listowel long? Let us know your next destination.

Alex,it sounds like this has been an eventful week. Life is interesting isn't it. I am so happy you have been with such wonderful people. I miss you but I wouldn't want you to miss out on our "Great Adventure". Remember your cushion of prayer.
Love, GM
