I've Graduated- Now What?

As most of you know (well, you all know since you've asked enough times to lead me to create this blog), I am about to embark on a 6 week adventure in Southeast Asia. What many of you don't know is that this was all made possible because of my mother. This was her graduation gift to me. You wouldn't think it by the worried expression she wears on her face whenever a certain word starting with 'Thai' and ending with 'land' is mentioned, but she was never one to prevent my dreams coming true. So thanks, Mom, for making this dream a reality.

I cannot promise you that my writing will be often, nor will it be beautiful. I've tried writing in a journal once when I studied abroad in China- only to find that most of my writing trailed off the page as I dozed off before my thoughts were complete. I'm glad typing will prevent this from happening, but I must warn you- just because I have an audience does NOT mean my thoughts will make sense!

So the adventure begins Saturday, when I take my first steps in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For now, I will be stuffing my face full of cheese, pizza, ice cream, and other mouth-watering food that doesn't involve noodles or rice!


  1. Yes! So glad you made this! And your writing style is's you, and I could picture you and hear you in my head saying all that. Can't wait read more. Have a great time!!!!


  2. Hehe...I didn't know you tried to keep a journal in China. I think this is way more attainable. I can't wait hear all about your adventures! Super Jealous! Have way too much fun there and I'm with your Mom stay clear of the fighting in Thailand!!


  3. Looks like today is a big day for both of us... I'm graduation and you're off on your adventure! I wish I could have gotten the chance to speak to you before you left, but have an AMAZING and safe journey! I love you Belinda <3
