sounds like an adventure

As many questions as I ask, you might as well ask some too.   This blog started as a way for me to document my one year adventure abroad that lasted from April 1st, 2012 to April 4th, 2013. New York to Istanbul, Turkey to Greece, Greece to Italy, Italy to Spain, Spain back to Turkey, Turkey until the end. It was an amazing endeavor that I am incredibly grateful for. What then became of this blog was my adjustment in returning to the US. Six months later it turned out my heart led me back across the Atlantic. Now, for life in Istanbul: round two.

I also share more miscellaneous things here: delightexciteengageinspire.tumblr.com

I got a haircut yesterday. I feel more like myself and refreshed.

"ARIES (March 21-April 19): That sore-thumb consideration which doesn’t fit into your clear understanding of the situation and/or align with your rallying call-to-action, Aries, is where the mischievously loving hand of God (or who-/whatever plays the all-knowing role in your personal worldview) presently resides. It reaches for you, attempting to touch your heart with its exceptions-to-the-rule, its renegade feelings and inconvenient intuitions. The thing that ‘doesn’t belong’ is not your problem; rather, it’s the fundamental precepts by which you’re determining the categories of ‘belonging’ and ‘not-belonging’ which are revealing their cracks. If you don’t seek to be somebody, then, who proceeds by fundamentalist ardor—predetermining the worthiness of a person or activity according to philosophic theory or age-old dogma, limiting your exposure to the universe’s vastness due to the blind acceptance of exposure-limiting ideals, preaching intellectual insight outwardly rather than receiving experiential insight inwardly—you must engage that very situation which threatens to reveal all that you’ve been missing (because we all miss something), embracing the personal discomfort in what it suggests about life’s irresolvable contradictions. Or you can just thrust forward, full-steam-ahead, pretending not to notice that faint ‘not quite right’ sense… though that doesn’t mean it’s not still there."

I ran into three different people today over the course of 9 hours. Actually 4 but 3 of them were truly big deals.
