Backpacked, hiked in the Himalayas, tried so many different kinds of foods, went to Nepal, Malaysia, Vietnam, Japan(!!!!), New Zealand, and France, finished a 1 year job contract, moved out of my first apartment, went hiking through a water filled cave, cooked thai food in the USA, met baby seals, had business lunches with old people in hopes of landing something good, worked on a travel writing website, attempted NANOWRIMO, became a regular on bakerstreet and other RP memes after years of radio silence all thanks to gay sports anime, learned how to work a cafe/bookstore! Wow! That is a lot! And literally 99% of those things happened between Jan-June of 2014, making this year really unbalanced....

9: What was your biggest failure? basically everything that happened after i got home from france. i couldn't get any kind of job in my field, and when i got close i would get shafted by some luck of the draw thing, plus i didn't gather the nerve to up and leave for thailand or new zealand for real, instead getting suckered into my family's bullshit and staying in the states.

I traveled the world
Looking for lovers
Of the ultimate beauty
