I’m an Adult

I catch myself getting particularly irritable when “hangry” approaching an endless queue. This is a consistent encounter.

Cigarettes and Dirt

Cigarette butts lay in a neat pile below his dinner table next to his dirty feet sticking out of his flip flops.

Bad Nomad

I scour travel blogs on a daily basis, I mull through pages of online soccer news, and I listen to strange and slow psychedelic music while doing so just dreaming away the minutes.  I ponder every day if I’m completely mad or if following my dreams of world travel, chasing this new fangled love of soccer, and putting myself out …

Preparation and Patience

Eight months in the works. Six months left to go. I bide my time as patiently as I can. I want nothing more than to be sitting at Dulles International airport waiting to board my flight momentarily, but I am learning that sometimes the love and time put into the preparation can be as exciting as the actual gift of …
