In 95 short days, I will be abandoning my life for the semi-known. I’d say unknown, but I know a good portion of it.
I’m starting this blog because I want to have documented everything for the time before, during, and after my journey – without being hunkered down by a thousand notebooks. I want to be able to reflect on how I feel in more than one line. Though I loved this book, sometimes I didn’t want to write and sometimes I had pages stirring in my mind. I’d suggest it for anyone who wants a simple 5 year memory book for only $13.
Back to the point. I suppose I should say a thing or two about myself. I am a 27 year old female with an Associate’s degree in Psychology and 6 years of irrelevant experience in insurance. Whether it is writing policies, underwriting policies, or examining policies to submit claims.. I’ve done a fair bit of it these past few years. I’ve had a couple of jobs I’ve loved and a couple that I’ve loathed. The one I presently hold falls closer into the latter which is why I don’t really have many qualms for packing up and going.
Where am I going? I should have pre-planned and organized this a bit more, but I do love stream of consciousness style writing. I’m going to India. Kerala, to be exact. I’ve been to India five times. Mumbai, Delhi, Rishikesh, Goa, Kerala, a few others, and soon many more. The plan is to save up a few thousand and go. With the help of driving Uber, I’ve been able to do just that and I’m really “stacking” it up as the youths may say. If you’d like to give driving a shot, use this link to earn $100 bonus after you complete 30 trips.
Why am I going? I’m 27. I don’t have any responsibilities or debts, though I desperately wish I had a dog. I’m complacent and cold in the tundras of Illinois and I want to get out a bit and do some living before I get too tied down or stuck in my life. There’s no time like the present, or in 95 days.
I leave, tentatively, on January 2nd and I hope to bring you with me.
