Well... looks like I'm going to the Netherlands for 2 months to help film videos at this recycling project called precious plastic!

I'm not paid, but i get to live with 40 awesome people doing cool stuff rent free with 3 meal/day provided :) And I might stay a couple weeks after to explore (or just head straight to Berlin and party? still undecided)

It's kind of random how it came to be, I just applied on a whim but now I need to look up cheap ways to get to Amsterdam. I'll probably buy a ticket from Boston since i'm going there soon anyway for my friend's clown-themed birthday party.

My life's really all over the place right now. Ever since I graduated university 3 years ago honestly. I kind of get anxious sometimes, because it's not going in any specific direction, and now I'm 25, pretty poor and never had a real life job. And my degree in marketing is getting more useless every year. But on the other hand I make enough to survive, have lots of fun and free time and interesting experiences. And in the last 3 years I've travelled a bunch, sold beard oil to Urban Outfitters, worked as an architecture photographer, started my own tour company and helped organise a bunch of burning man stuff including a 600 people party. I guess while I'm only responsible for myself, it's fine. It's just hard to to compare myself to my sister sometimes. She just got married a week ago, has a good stable job with potential and almost 100k in savings.

Don't worry too much about this. Comparisons with family members can be awful sometimes; even if they aren't judging it can be a kind of ever-present reminder of what could be different. The most important thing is doing what you're passionate about. I'm certain you'll come out on top.

Thanks for the encouragement :) I’m happy with where I am and me and my sister are very different. It’s just hard to not compare sometimes!
