A new direction, shiny compass in hand, onward ho

It’s time to switch gears. Honestly I thought it would take longer to get my feet wet in the industry and figured I’d be hosting at restaurants until I was wrinkly. But as luck and hard work has it, I haven’t set foot inside a sports bar for months and no longer need to bus dirty dishes to get by.

While I muse and reflect the blog is going to change over to my adventures here and abroad so I have a base to go on. Things are happening fast and I’m having a strong desire to be tethered somewhere solid, despite by unquenchable wanderlust in real life and online.

For now the focus will shift into travel – the broad and awe-filled topic that many choose to chase and others are left wondering how great it really can be. I hope to immerse myself in it, the one thing that’s consistently let me feel alive. A scary though, while love and faith and  worry tend to ebb and flow throughout my life, the absolute need to see everything, in person, all over the world, has never left me. I want to share that deep desire with everyone.

Officially, I am no longer unemployed. I am SELF employed, which is something I never thought I’d say. It’s time to embrace this, realize it, roll with it and carry on. I’m thrilled and terrified all at once, but I alone am in control now and it feels wonderful.
