The Reason Why I Attend School

IMG_2235

Rome, Italy

As some of my more avid followers may have noticed, I haven’t been posting much lately.  It isn’t that I’m not logging on and reading posts, I just am struggling to find the inspiration to write anything.  This is common when I’m drowning in school work.

As I drag through the next week and a half of finals, I need to remind myself the reason I’m mucking through school.  I torture my mind with endless textbooks and homework so I can get a great job.  I will obtain a great and meaningful job so that I can travel.  I don’t need to be wealthy with money, I crave to be rich with knowledge and experience.  I desire to see everything from the ancient wonders of the world, to the African safari, to the Great Barrier Reef.  I want to do it all. I will do it all.  There is too much in life to merely sit at a desk waiting for 5 o’clock to arrive every day.  I will travel, I will share my stories, I will share my pictures.  I will learn about people from cultures all around the world.  I will devour myself with the histories, traditions, and passions of our fellow earth-beings.  I will spread awareness and joy.  I will help make this world a better place in any way I can.  I will make sure my life is not wasted wishing.

“Ignoring your passion is slow suicide.  Never ignore what your heart pumps for.  Mold your career around your lifestyle, not your lifestyle around your career.”  -Unknown

    A big non-religious hallelujah to that! 😀
    Absolutely agreed.

    Great perspective and well expressed! I agree completely. The only way to properly appreciate the views of others is to “walk a mile in their shoes.” Traveling is a great way to at least walk a few feet in their shoes and also experience the grandeur of nature.

    Just a thought, from off the wall. Consider a stint at being a paid traveling companion to someone infirm or elderly. It would slow you down but would not only get you “there” on someone else’s dime, it would also be a way to share your adventure with someone unable to do it on their own. Somnium semper magnus.
