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.

About to leave for Dublin

IRELAND | Saturday, 17 February 2007 | Views [579] | Comments [2]

So I met up with another couchsurfer, a Finnish girl, very pretty. I'm not gonna be stupid like I was the last time, no worries. We went to the Cliffs of Moher, the whole reason I came to Ireland, and go figure, my camera is broken. Yeah I know, again. Thats what you get for $400. I really like the camera I just wish it would stop breaking down on me. I took a few crap photos with my phone which I will post later. I bought a cheap Fuji digital to snap some quick photos until I figure out what to do. We are about to leave for Dublin for a couchsurfers meet and greet and then I may be moving on to England. Marianne (the finn) suggested that I try out the whole AuPair thing so I created a profile and got a response all in about 2 hours. There is an artist couple who I am supposed to contact today. They would be paying me about $400 US per week, with no living expenses. I would be taking care of a 1 year old boy and a 3 year old girl. I think I could handle it, no problem. We will see how it works out.Hope all is well with my friends and family. Much love. By the way, as of today....1 month.

You are a natural AuPair. I hope you like Dublin. I think you'll find it very different from the Ireland you've seen so far. If you run into The Edge and/or Bono in Temple Bar, you be sure to ... oh, wait, this is a public post ... ok, never mind, you know what to do.

Thinking of you with envy.
