’cause time flies

It’s been exactly a year since I unofficially graduated from college and lost myself in the insanity of adulthood. I have loved the freedom since, the rush of responsibility, the financial independence, the stamp of a degree, the corporate chaos. And also hated it.

Life has changed in many ways, and yet, in some fundamental sense, I am still the restless, fickle mind of a young student exploring the ways of the world, looking for adventure in the least likely of places, and forever moving by elimination. I have however, in this year, found a master key to survival – living a day at a time. Of all things that work, this one works wonders. It’s amazing what a day can be, with no future to look into and no past to brood over.

I am not aspiring to be a life coach just yet, so I’ll leave you with these lines from Porcupine Tree,

But after a while, You realize time flies, And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you, ‘Cause time flies…

Welcome to my blog, The Shooting Star. I’ve been called a storyteller, writer, photographer, digital nomad, "sustainability influencer," social entrepreneur, solo traveller, vegan, sustainable tourism consultant and environmentalist. But in my heart, I’m just a girl who believes that travel - if done right - has the power to change us and the world we live in.
