I am not going to lie. I really like being unemployed. I have so much time to work on creative projects, music, writing and what not. Plus my friends are always willing to hang out and do stuff. Yesterday I went to the beach and played in the surf. I have been doing some hiking in different parts of my neighborhood. I really don't want to to find work, and I think I have been stopping myself from looking for a job. Any ways I want this bike.

To summer dreams.

Considering that this summer is only half over I am amazed of how many changes have and will happen. Best friends moving away, re-kindling friendship’s with past flings, friends breaking up with their significant others. For me personally this has been a great summer. I went on an amazing trip, have spent some great time with my friend before he leaves for SF later next month. I have been to countless great shows and ran into old friends and met new ones. I’m excited because even though things are changing rapidly the people all around me seem to be taking charge of their life and demanding only the best from it. That excites me and gives me the pushes that I need occasionally to chase what I want out of life.
Looking forward, there is much in the next month: more great shows, a joint birthday celebration with my friend, possibly a new job with a really cute girl, and just trying everyday to be as productive as possible.

Not Here

I sincerely believe in the power of travel and the affects it can have on a person. There is nothing more eye opening but to travel to place you have never been before, where you know no one and just explore. I spent the last month visiting places that I would have never seen myself ever visiting. Places I couldn’t even point out on a map. For example I never new how friendly and welcoming the people of Boise Idaho would be. Or how a Guatemalan would just open up to a complete stranger in a Brooklyn hostel. Explain their whole life, their dreams for the future. Or how easy it is to fall for someone on the other side of the continent. But it happened continuously for the last month while I was traveling. There is no comparison to wake up in a foreign city and spend the whole day walking around and exploring. Meeting such a variety of people at every turn. People who are as interested in you as you are in them.
I honestly believe travel could solve a majority of the world’s problems. But it would have to be honest traveling. Where you completely immerse yourself in place you have never been. Act as everyone else and keep your mouth shut and just listen. Wait for the city to open up to you and you will be amazed.
As I look to the future I am already looking to travel to more places. I fantasize about the people I would meet and experiences I will have. Travel should be on the minds of all people because I think the worst thing would be to never leave your bubble and get lost in a foreign town.
