One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most important/life changing experience was when I studied abroad in Sweden for a year. It gave me my first chance to live a non-touristy life outside of US borders and it gave me an opportunity to experience most of Europe first hand with newly acquired friends. I now have an inquenchable thirst for traveling and meeting new people from exotic lands.

Teach, Learn, Share

But then they danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
-On the Road, Jack Kerouac
