Age of Experience

Monday, May 2, 2016


These days my online shopping carts more often hold experience over material things -- bus tickets to a nearby city, tickets to see influential speakers. Because of this I frequently receive questions about what I do for a living. Despite what social media might display, I do have a corporate day job. I just choose to explore by night (and weekends, of course).

There are few days during the week when I return straight home after work. It's easy to get distracted by daily obligations, but plans as simple as dinner with old friends keep you from being caged. Stay curious and proactive. Seek knowledge and embrace adventure. I travel because it keeps me on my toes. How about you?

  12. Yes! I love how you refer to it as the 'age of experience.' I've been noticing the change in myself as well and it makes me super happy. Keep on exploring! The cute romper doesn't hurt either.
