Have you ever sat a work bored out of your mind thinking “why the F*ck am I still here?’ I have. Many times. I’m actually at work this very moment writing this. I’ve been here for 4 years and it’s driving me insane how I need change in my life already. I started this job my sophomore year of college. Four years later I’m still here and I graduated a year ago!

Why do we have to work these mind-numbing jobs to make other people money? I would love to be making myself rich right now instead of someone else. That’s exactly why I’ll be quitting my job soon.

What will I do after I quit? TRAVEL. I booked my one-way ticket to South America. My original plan after I graduated was to move to Australia for a year but plans changed. I met someone. But that story is for another time.

I ‘plan’ on being in South America for about 7 months. I say ‘plan’ because things can always change at moment’s notice. Who likes to stick to the plan anyway?

Besides enjoying myself, immersing myself in other cultures and spending time with my significant other. I have one thing I would like to accomplish. Have a better understanding of what I want out of life.

 I want more but don't we all? I want more out of life. I don’t want to be that one person who spends their whole life wondering “what if.” That just cannot be me. This is exactly why I’m quitting my job and traveling. If only it were that easy to just travel the rest of my life.
