In an emo state of mind, clearly

I'm reading a fantastic book right now called Nine Hills to Nambonkaha, a former Peace Corps volunteer's memoir of two years spent living in a small village in the Ivory Coast. It not only reminds me how lucky I am to be living in this modern, first-world country (despite all of my grievances with Korea), but also reinvigorated my desire to visit Africa.

After just last week seemingly finalizing my travel/life plans for the next 12 months -- at least internally -- everything is again up in the air. Or, at least, this reaffirms why I shouldn't give myself a deadline to finish traveling and start a "real" life. Maybe this is my real life.

On a related note, check out my friend Caitlin's amazing blog as she documents life as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guinea, West Africa.

It's just that kinda day...

Make your own album cover:

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random.
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band

2 - Go to "Random quotations" or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days,” or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together


  1. I say - go to Africa! Traveling can be apart of your life/career if you will it to be.

    I'm loving this album cover game. Mine is

    Poynter Hill: The way you treat a man.

    would be my album cover!

    It all goes together, oddly enough...

  2. What are your full plans for the next 12 months?

    I say travel! Just do it. "real life" will start no matter what so do what you have to do in the meantime. Travel can be your full time job.

    I also enjoy books that have to do with self discovery and travel. So inspiring.
