I fly out in five days! FIVE DAYS! It's crazy that I am even going but I am ready to have some time away and to recharge. I will be visiting so many amazing locations and I will be in the nice cold weather that I enjoy. I have no idea what it i will be like culturally or what it will be like to have to drive a stick shift over there but I am sure that I will adjust quickly and without any real effort. There are so many picture opportunities and so many memories to make while I am there. the idea that I am going is only just now starting to settle and it honestly feels so nice to be able to go places and to live my life the way that it's intended.
Our lives are so short and we miss out on so much. I don't intend to miss out on the things that I want to do and this is one of those things. Another country to cross off my list, another beautiful place to make memories done, and a life worth living. I cant wait to see what Iceland has in store for me.
I hope you guys will follow along on this adventure. This will be a good one.
Today I turn 23. It's weird when I think about everything that has happened in the past. All of the good, bad, and crazy. Everything is so different and so much has happened that is hard to believe that I made it this far. In the twenty-three years I have been alive the past five have been the best. I become someone I didn't ever think I could be and because of that, I feel pretty proud. I used to be super introverted, unsure of everything, and unhealthy. I was one of those kids that you would look at and be unsure of. You had no idea what I was going to do, where I was going to be or how I would turn out. Yet here I am, still going and expanding myself. It's crazy how much you can change.
I'm excited for today and I can't wait to see what happens. This birthday is already off to a great start and I am sure the rest of the day will live up to my expectations.
Cheers to another birthday and another successful year. ----------
By the way, when it comes to the name of my vehicle nobody has guessed the correct movie yet. So the 15% off of any art piece you desire is still up for grabs. You just have to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me which movie the name is from.
I finally found the car that I need to start my traveling journey. It is an Xterra 2000 and it can pull up to 3500 pounds. What is even better is that it is a stick shift car. Just driving it from Fort Walton to Niceville I can already tell that it will take some getting used to. It even sounds different which threw me off and honestly made me a little nervous at first but after a few miles, I started to understand how it runs. I usually never do purchases like this and for me, it was a little weird to have that moment where I literally hand someone cash that I worked hard to earn. It was exciting, nerve-wracking, and honestly empowering in a way.
Now that I have the first step done in my traveling plan I feel like I can finally breathe a little and relax. I feel like I can take the rest of the time this month to actually get things done and ready before I head out to Iceland.
Things have finally started to turn around and go in the direction I need them to.
Another day at the grind. Another day where we are looking at vehicles and hoping that one of them is the one. We will see by the end of the day if I will have the next step in my dream or if the search will continue. Along with that I only have five days before my birthday and I am pretty stoked about it. To celebrate I am asking that you guys take a look at the artwork and see if any stands out to you. It would mean a lot if you guys would purchase some and help me say goodbye to a few pieces. Thank you all in advance.
