I Hate Flying….

I absolutely hate flying. I officially have two days until I fly back to the states, and I am not looking forward to it. Flying gives me horrible anxiety. And sometimes, when I have to get on a plane, I have very bad panic attacks. That is not good. But you know, the funny thing…

The Road Ahead…

At this point, sitting here, one of my remaining days in Italy, I am left alone with my thoughts to ponder them. But instead of sitting here, drowning in self-pitty and sorry, I guess that I can just take action. It’s never too late to be who I might have been, right? Well the point…

If I knew then….#whatIknownow

I have always had a penchant for travel and a zest for life. However, I have not always been good with my finances, let me just say (although I have learned from experience and my past mistakes). But years ago, I was also wrapped up in my boyfriend at the time (huge mistake, the guy…
