Thailand, Music & More – Back to Me

When I graduated 2 months ago. I wasn’t where I wanted to be. The post-grad blues were weighing heavy. The transition to home-life was harder than I had anticipated.

I didn’t really want to do anything, I felt lost, and was reminded of all of my dreams through stickies on my lap top.

I’ve allowed myself to grieve the end of my college career, journal, and spend a lot of time alone over the past few weeks. In my last post, I spoke about how I had dreams of playing music, reading books, writing blogs and traveling to Thailand. I could have easily continued to push these to the back burner and stay stuck in retrospection of the life I had just left behind.

I have decided instead to take action and stay true to creating the life that I truly want for myself.

In the past 4 weeks, I can proudly say that I have paired up with a talented musician, Jay, to create our duo Party of Two, where we have been jammin’ out and even have gotten our first paid gig!

I am so happy to have found my voice (pun intended) again and get back to something I love so much! Check out our newest video:

Not only have a come to rediscover music, but at the end of October, I will be spending about 6 months in Thailand teaching English.

My only regret I have in this life, is not taking a year between high school and college to be a citizen of the world and see where I best fit. After re-reading old journals, it was clear that I could not make the same mistake twice.

I will most likely be living alone in Thailand and won’t even know where I will be placed until I arrive in Chiang Mai in November for my TEFL certification course.

But I trust in the process, and feel like I am doing exactly what I need to be doing.

My point in sharing all of this excitement is to give the reminder that we all have the choice to stay stuck where we are or to take action (and a leap of faith), to create the life we want for ourselves.

Nothing is holding you back, but you!
