Here’s the way I see it, you guys. In between the ages of 20 and 30, nothing matters. It’s not real life. Cell phone bills, health insurance, politics... these are things our parents need to worry about. Someday, we will, too. But right now? Right now, when you hear the siren song of the open road calling your name, you answer it.
Or at least text it back with “sry can’t pick up right now, what's good?”
I bet you’ve seen the movie Eat Pray Love. So, so inspiring. But here’s something you probably didn’t know about it that just might make your head spin: before it was a movie, it was actually a book. This is my case and point. Think about it: you’re basically not allowed to write a book unless it’s full of meaningful & good ideas, because publishing is expensive. So basically, abandoning your familial obligations and financial responsibilities is what we’re supposed to do to find food, spirituality, and Javier Bardem. Except unlike Eat Pray Love, we’re meant to do it in our 20s, before we become wide-mouthed crones like Julia Roberts. We wouldn’t even look good in selfies with Angkor Wat in the background if we wait that long, and at that point, why even bother?
