It is almost half way through October and the only colors that have changed in Florida are the colors of license plates as all the northern snowbirds begin to crawl their way down for the winter. Today was the coolest day we have had in eons, only hitting 77*F around 10am. It is now after… Continue reading It’s already October
Let’s get excited for a moment.
Anyone who has had more than, say, three life experiences knows that great surprises come in all shapes and sizes. This time my surprise came in the shape of a long lost friend offering me a great opportunity. My plans for moving to China in January to teach English have remained surprisingly cohesive for the… Continue reading Let’s get excited for a moment.
I can't help but feel that I've been neglecting my blog and my far away reader friends of late, and for that I'm sorry. The simple truth of the matter is firstly that I have been on the road for over two weeks, and secondly, that I can't figure out what to write about. Everything… Continue reading Neglect

But as certainty of the future starts to go out the window, and a plurality of options opens up, I'm starting to think that… Continue reading Battling Fear
Tonight I've had three tabs open on my browser: Google Maps, StudentUniverse, and my bank account. This is a lethal combination. I have a holiday coming up at the end of February for a full week of winter break. While my current plans involve driving from New Hampshire to Key West with two or three friends,… Continue reading Holiday Plans
This is the first day of twenty fifteen. I welcomed in the new year flying down the highways of Pennsylvania while driving home to New Hampshire from Michigan. I was supposed to be at the bon fire party of a friend of mine in NH but that was just not meant to be. Maybe this… Continue reading Day One
So what kind of beat is life currently jamming to? The beat of adventure, that's what! Adventure, the future, forward thinking, anticipation, all that sort of thing. In light of that I thought that I'd post a couple of links and blurbs about some of the things I'm finding more intriguing as possibilities for the… Continue reading Days Ahead
