"People often ask if I get lonely, if I get scared being that far from home. I’ve never really been able to grasp the question: why would I be lonely or afraid when there’s so much to see, when (really) I could be home within hours of deciding to go to the airport?" More here.

'When asked, I would quickly say that once blogging became like a "job" for me I would stop. I only want to do things that I am truly passionate about, and if the time arrived that I felt like I was half ass-ing it I would just change it or stop. Life's just too short to waste time.' More here.

"But think of all the texts you've left unreplied, the e-mails you've ignored, the Facebook events you've declined.

Sometimes I ache to record it all and then other times I wonder what I'm so worried about forgetting. The details, I suppose." More here.
