‘If I should die,’ said I to myself, ‘I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have lov’d the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember’d.’ - John Keats
“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.” - Kurt Vonnegut

I found this book I made when I was 14 (inspired by a trip we took to Scotland/England for my dad’s job). It’s 90+ pages of clippings from travel brochures and magazines of all the places I wanted to go. I worked on it all throughout high school (2000-2004), then when I went to college I put it in a box and kind of forgot about it. Since then I’ve gone to France and Tennessee and North Carolina and New York City and that’s it. I used to want to travel the world so badly and yet somehow I haven’t managed to do it and little 14-year-old me is a kind of mad at 28-year-old me for not figuring out how to travel more. Right now, while I am employed 40 hours a week, I don’t have paid vacation time. Once that changes, I’m gonna do 14-year-old-me a solid and travel as often as I possibly can.
