My Journey

“I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.”

-Jack Dawson, Titanic

As a recent from the University of California, Berkeley, I had no plans after graduation except to live life to the fullest, and meet some pretty cool people along the way. This blog chronicles my navigation of the post-grad lifestyle, experiences from traveling through Europe while I studied abroad, and little tidbits about why I miss California and living out of my North Face backpack in Europe so much.
