Reflection on traveling.
Its funny because I traveled for 7 months and then I made quite a few side trips that weren’t part of the plan. I went to Morocco, Sweden and Turkey on top of all the countries I had originally planned. The ones that weren’t on my original itinerary turned out to be my favorite.
I don’t know if it was because it was such a culture shock being in Marrakesh or Istanbul, but I fell in love and it was amazing. The daily life there is so vastly different than my normal routine that it genuinely intrigued me and made me want to learn more about their culture.
I mean South America sort of reminded me of Mexico and Central America, and I had been to Europe before, so I wasn’t that shocked or whatever. I just loved the hustle and bustle of the huge cities in Morocco and Turkey.
Taxi drivers drove wove through traffic in rickety taxis in Marrakesh and in Turkey there was so much traffic it took 60 minutes to get to the center of town when it would take 15 with no traffic. And OMG don’t get me started on the Bosphorous. That shit is BEAUTIFUL. I could definitely see myself living in Istanbul for a while. Shame on me for not studying abroad and thanks to Erik for studying abroad there because if he wasn’t I never would have experience the awesomeness of Turkey.
Ugh, I am such a lucky person to have been able to experience awesome shit.
If you ever have the chance to visit Morocco or Turkey do so! Everyone should travel! Let me know if you have any questions about plane tickets and hostels and shit because its definitely not as expensive as you think!
planning my trip to vegas.
My good friends are going and its going to be a blast!
its not even that expensive.
Life as of right now.
Okay, I haven’t been stressing out, I’ve just been having a lot of thoughts in my head and I think it would help to put them down in writing, and as we all know, tumblr is my way of expressing myself.
Okay, so first off, being back sucks. I’ve decided I will do my darndest to not live in the United States when I’m an independent adult. I’ve even looked into moving to Australia for a year to figure shit out if med school doesnt work the first time around.
I’ve been sitting around the house all fucking day not doing shit, waiting for jobs to call me back, so I re-joined LA Fitness. There’s no use in me being stagnant with all my free time when I can at least be a little bit productive and get my fitness on.
I’m going to talk to someone on monday about a possible job. Ideally I’d like to live in Tucson, but if some shit works out here in Phoenix, I have no problem staying. I just need to find time to study for the MCAT with my friend Michelle. I think I’ll finally get to reading all my textbooks even if it all doesnt stick, it cant hurt. I wish I had a photographic memory, but we cant all have what we want.
In terms of boys, theres a couple I’m interested in, I’ll update you if I feel like it.
and thats pretty much it so far. Oh, I decided I’m going to LA for my birthday May 18th-20th. Any of you there? Maybe we can hang out.
AND I decided I’m going to Electric Daisy Carnival this year! I’m so fucking excited! are any of you going? lets meet up!!!
Sorry I havent been on as often as I would like. I’m traveling and posting on my travel blog. I like to post my instagram pics just so my tumblr isn’t completely ignored.
Also let me know if any of you want a postcard. I will send you one! Do you want one?
Looking at tumblr on the bus because it has wifi.
I’m scared. You guys better not reblog any porn! People will think I’m a creeper!
