How is everyone? Good? Living? Recently I spoke of how I really don’t know what I’m doing. I had a thought of moving to Mexico…then an issue arose. I found it is very hard for people/Americans to find a job there and if they do it probably won’t pay well. You usually do not see Americans going to work in Mexico because of this issue. Mostly for vacation. The cost of living in DF is kind of high compared to other places in Mexico. You can relate it to living in Los Angeles but with its own spin. My job hunt ended rather…well you can say disappointing. For now I think my best bet will just be visiting as much as I can. Maybe, live there for a short period of time. Who knows!
Thought of the day: just because things don’t work out, doesn’t mean you should give up.
It has been some while since I have written, two months roughly. Right now my life is in a bit of a chaos. The high from traveling is no more and I am beginning to see reality. Right now my travel plans are on hold as I am unsure of where I will be going or if I am going. I think at this point in my life I have many things to figure out, then maybe I can travel. No matter where you run or go your problems will follow.
I think all college graduates go through this, an initial reaction of wtf am I doing with my life? It’s one of those things that is not talked about much, people just say enjoy your years of college as it will be the best years of your life. When you’re in college you think no way how can this be the best years of my life? Quizzes, tests, research that’s no fun (sarcasm). When you look back though you will realize it really was, the best years of your life. College was one of the best learning experiences and I made life long friends that made it even better.
Now, I can only hope and pray for the best to come. As my future is unknown but I will keep looking for what is right. Remember, always do what makes you happy!
Only 2 days left before I return home. It’s crazy how fast time goes. Summer is almost over and soon I’ll have to start my real adult life. I still cant believe I graduated college and will not be returning.
Lately, I have been thinking a lot of what we humans are really capable of which is anything. We can learn to adapt to so many different things it’s amazing. When people say that what you wanna do is impossible, it is possible. When you know what you want you will do anything to get there, even if that involves momentarily discomfort. I am very excited to begin this new chapter in my life. I want to learn how to speak different languages, meet new friends,achieve my traveling dream etc. I know this new chapter means I will win some and loose some. I will loose friends, meet new ones, find bad ones, but eventually find those who are great for me. I hope to be more involved with my family and be great full for all I have.
Ending note..go to Croatia it is the most beautiful country I have ever been to! I really love Split and Dubrovnik has very great islands and history. Budapest is also one of my favorites it’s a hidden gem! Sometimes this all seems like a dream and it is unbelievable! I am so happy I did this I will never forget.
Today is July 16th,
My trip is almost over but I am ready to return home and begin my new life. I found backpacking is quite the experience but I more enjoy staying in one place at a time for a certain time period. I am excited to go home and eat loads of ketchup and drive a car yet again. Plus not being lost all the time lol.
What have I learned from backpacking? I learned that anything in life is possible if you want it enough. Dreams only come true if you make them. People always say o my gosh you’re so lucky to go there and there. However, traveling is not always cake and ice cream. There is difficulties such as being lost, not being able to find your hostel, not knowing what the hell people are saying, missing your flight, paying extra fees or hidden fees. I find now through most situations i just stay very calm and accept the fact that it’s happening, as long as I tried there is no more I can do. You must accept the things you cannot change.
On another note, traveling is a lesson and a great experience. I have now seen some very beautiful places that not many people see. I am blessed as not everyone has this opportunity. I have met great people from all walks of life and made some great memories. I also learned how much I take things for granted when I don’t have it. I have only about 100 dollars left and its interesting trying to make it all work. Though it would be nice to just to go straight back to Mexico or Barcelona to live, I can’t. Unfortunately, in life you have to work for what you want. I have hopes of moving to one of these places in the near future. Just know anything is possible. Money is important but it doesn’t need to determine your happiness.
Service announcement if you have not yet been to Croatia, GO!!!!
Time where has it gone?
So much has changed for me in the last year. I lost people and gained some people. My mistakes have taught me to know better. I am glad everything happened as I wouldn’t be who I am today. My stay here in Mexico is almost up, meeting my family for the first time, only speaking Spanish it was amazing. I will miss them but I will be back. My life will no longer be the same in two months. I am excited and scared for the future. But have high hopes for great travels and meeting new people.
Shout out to my few best friends and family for being the real mvps! You will always be in my heart and be with me wherever I go. I am thankful for you all. So sappy I know. Haha. So cheers to lost pathways and new beginnings.
