Got a $700 round-trip to Europe for a month. Tentatively. Might stick around longer if it turns out I really like living the pseudo-hobo life.
Friend of mine said, “You’re going to be there an entire month? And you don’t even know anybody?”
“That’s so scary.”
“That’s why I gotta.”
You have to make sure you can do these things. You’re never gonna know if you can write the novel til you put all the words on the page. You’re not gonna know if you have what it takes to run the whole “higher education” gamut until you got the diplomas in hand. You’re never gonna know what kind of person you are until you put yourself in a situation where you have to find out.
The chronicle starts in earnest next week.
