Talk About “Risk It for the Biscuit” and why it’s totally necessary

IMG_7151

      Chasing your dreams takes a lot of courage, there’s no doubt about it.

Sometimes, you find yourself taking a path that nobody else around you is, and that’s okay. Everyone has different goals and different aspirations.

My number one priority is travel, and I’ve risked a lot to do it.

I’ve ended relationships, said goodbye to more friends than I could count, missed out on time with my family and quit a job that I felt very comfortable at.

But I embrace the changes with open arms, and realize that new opportunities will always come. Those things I’ve left behind are so small compared to how awesome it is to have a chance to embark on a vast journey and see the world.

The risks are worth it.

4 reasons to embrace your inner badass and take that solo trip

Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.

-Henry David Thoreau

I believe everyone should take a trip alone and here’s 4 main reasons why.

  1. the freedom: Nothing is more exhilarating than the thrill of knowing the world is yours to conquer. You are free from the lifestyle you chose to leave behind, free from being chained down to an apartment lease and free from the thoughts of feeling like you’re missing out on all that life has to offer.

 2. friends: when you travel alone it is easier to meet people, and having contacts all across the globe is the best type of network one can dream of. Of course you have trust your gut when it comes down to judging a person’s character and there’s nothing wrong with being skeptical at first, but I have made some good friends along the way who I still keep in contact with.

3. experience: Sometimes, pictures just don’t do a destination justice, and the feeling of actually climbing that mountain in Japan or swimming in the crystal clear blue waters of the gulf coast cannot be replaced. Nobody, not a single person, can take away the memories you have made, and no two stories are the same.

4.personal growth: My favorite reason of them all. Going out and seeing other cultures and participating in social norms besides the ones you know as your own, develop a person into a more rounded individual with more perspectives on lifestyle then they may have had before. I believe solo travel makes you more self efficient and confident. You learn to cope with feeling homesick, you become an expert at feeling comfortable when lost, you learn that if you speed that power walk up to a light jog you will make that flight. You learn that it’s damn good to be alive.

People who travel alone have the hearts of lions and I never fail to admire them for their adventurous spirits.

 

Musicians on the Rise

I Met A Yetifullsizeoutput_175I love where I grew up and I love seeing new things. When you add the two together, you might just find yourself hearing some good ass music, in a hole in the wall somewhere downtown. This time I was at Wills.   It was pretty cool inside, covered with stickers from all over, had some hightop tables and a patio. All around it was a nice vibe. A few bands played their songs and it was a smooth night. But to me, it was extra awesome because my cousin, Luis, plays bass in one of the bands.

Here we are as kids hahahaimg_7129.jpg

Anyways, he’s all self-taught when it comes to music and everything his band plays is authentic and made completely from scratch.

To me, there is nothing more incredible than seeing someone do what they love, and I witnessed just that. There’s more great things in store for these guys, and there is nowhere to go but up. fullsizeoutput_17bfullsizeoutput_17c.jpeg

All of the bands that played were pretty impressive. It gave me hope that there still is talent out there.I’m glad I went out to have a drink and take some photos. Keep kicking ass!
