Where do you want to go today?

Taking time in. A few old university friends and I touched base recently and told me, "You're doing what you said you wanted to do." Now, I don't recall having much clarity on life during my university days but I was pretty steadfast in wanting to travel. Had no plan/idea on how to but I kept that goal in mind. 5 years ago, I said I'll never work a regular 9-5 again and would clock in 20 hour weekends just to beat that and have free days during the week lol. About 3 years ago, I told myself that I needed to travel to a new country at least once year, which I did and now I've found myself in 5 countries since January. Then I told myself I needed to live long-term in at least two different countries before I'm 30 (one down). It does take action to move with life, but no, it doesn't have to be meticulously planned out all the time so don't worry, you're the only one who doesn't have everything mapped out. The urge to be on the move is so ingrained that it's almost second nature to navigate and find opportunities towards just that. Does that make sense? There's no plan B to not finding accomplishments for the goals I set myself. #noforreal #ilegitdonthaveaplan #abudhabi #uae #travelnoire

Keeping Up With L.A.

 Of course, people react to the cult of celebrity differently, with certain populations more susceptible than others. “I think the power of capitalism, and exploiting addiction in general, is looking for insecurities and weaknesses,” Greenfield said. “Everybody that has insecurities becomes a very good consumer. The way marketing works is, if you buy this thing, it will fix what you feel is missing.”
