Options and Opportunities: Then

So what am I going to do when I’m traveling to make money? I would love to say I can handle it all as I go, that this blog will make enough to at least get me food (hah!), and I need not worry, but–OH WAIT! This is reality. So, of course, as I’m wont … Continue reading

Options and Opportunities: Now

So I’ve covered the Why behind my travels, but I have yet to uncover the How. I’ve alluded to saving up and taking jobs here and there, maybe taking a job in Cambodia if I could learn the language a little better (Khmer is a tad harder to find online than, say, French), and I’ll … Continue reading

Series: Final Goals for 2012

Goal #4 Possibly the least personal and most tangible goal of the bunch is my wish to document at least one hundred species of snakes, and fifty species of miscellaneous animals. Of course, sometime in my life I hope to discover just one species new to science, I highly doubt I would be able to … Continue reading

Series: More Goals for 2012

Apologies for the delay, I’ve had some technical difficulties with my laptop–now dubbed BrokeAss. I’m still working to get BrokeAss running again, or at the very least BrokeAss the First (the broken laptop that proceeded BrokeAss), so in the mean time I’ll be using a friend’s computer. So, if you’ll bear with me, I’ll continue … Continue reading

Series: Personal Goals for 2012

I’ve decided to revisit the goals I had set down for myself three months ago in an attempt to narrow down my plans to a coherent list rather than random notes scribbled haphazardly every which-where. Things have changed, and as predicted, my plans have morphed into a more feasible grid of the next six months … Continue reading

Baby Steps

So, yesterday I finally got a second job. It was a lot easier to get than I expected, and now I work mornings at Burger King and evenings at a grocery store slicing meat. It’s not glamorous, but glamorous wasn’t what I was asking for anyway. The ‘New Hire’ excitement is only just beginning to … Continue reading

And I’m Back, with Two Major Changes

Okay, so it’s become apparent that I’m no good at this, at least not yet. I am notoriously bad at keeping up blogs, posts, twits, and anything that is even remotely tied to a daily diary. That said, I’m doing much better with this than I normally would be. The fact that I made six … Continue reading

Humiliation and Sweat

Yesterday, I posted very compelling reasons for exercising, and they don’t only apply to traveling. Today, I’m letting you get a peek at my own exercise session. Unfortunately (for you) my sister’s video camera has no batteries, so you don’t actually get to laugh as you watch me collapse every other time I do a … Continue reading

10 Reasons to Start Exercising Before Traveling

I’m going to start by saying I don’t know the first thing about exercise. I’ve never done it. I would say aside from Physical Education in high school, but I never considered that anything other than torture in the form of Jazzercise. Now, I may look skinny, but don’t let my size fool you–none of … Continue reading

Letter to the Future

Hi future, We haven’t met, but I’ve heard a lot about you around town. You already know all about me, so let’s talk about you. How are you? Where are you? Are you living it up in Japan like I discussed, preparing to head on home to good ol’ Californ-eye-ay? Perhaps you’re in Russia, having … Continue reading
