I want to travel.
I see all the photos my friends post, documenting their travels around the world. London, Morocco, Korea, Thailand. Just yesterday I had a conversation with two very close friends of mine, one of which who wants to study outside of Toronto. "You have to remember that you're young now, and you may not get these chances when you're older." Friends, family, my boyfriend- these are all reasons I decided that it was best for me to stay at home. Besides, I can hardly even do my own laundry, yet alone survive alone somewhere foreign. But he's right. I can't keep up passing opportunities because I am afraid or because I feel like I will be leaving something behind. Change is scary, but it is also liberating. Perhaps in the new future I can get the courage I need to pursue a life beyond these walls.
The world outside Toronto is breathtaking.
