May you rest in peace Jamie Weis, I will never forget our times at SCI Hornings. Keep on shinning..

SCUBA Time!

January 4, 2014

The time has come.. I passed the Open Water SCUBA Diving written exam and now it’s time to get into the ocean! I had trouble yesterday with my ears equalizing in the swimming pool portion, probably (no, definitely) it’s because I have a cold but that isn’t going to stop me (unless it hurts real bad, then yes, it will stop me).. but that isn’t an option. The adrenaline and nerves are kicking in. Wish me luck!

Little Inspiration

January 1, 2014

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something..” – Steve Jobs.

A couple years ago I read this quote that inspired me to pack up and explore the unknown. When approaching this New Year, remember your life is a canvas and you are the artist. You get to paint the picture. If you are unhappy, do something about it. Don’t forget the dreams inside your head, they’re only there until your dead. Happy New Year!

Happy New Years!

January 1, 2014

No surprise to me that 2013 has been the best year is my life, without a doubt. The places I’ve been fortunate to see, the travelers who became my family, the locals I’ve learned so much from, the moments my breath has been taken away, the things I have realized and faced about myself, the ups and downs I’ve experienced, the personal limits I’ve pushed, the feeling of leaving everything familiar and the impact my character has gained are absolutely priceless. I leave this year with immense gratitude and excitement as I can’t wait to grow older and carry with me everything I’ve experienced. I wish you all a very happy and safe New Years. To everyone I’ve met on the road this far.. Thank You. Thank You so much. Sending everyone a huge kiss, hug and warm smile from the beautiful Thailand.
