Defined as good fortune, luck, or a pleasant surprise, serendipity has been on my mind as of late. The way life brings people into your life, and takes them away, is quite astonishing. I have been blessed to have been able to travel during my college career, travels of which have enabled me to meet a number of truly fascinating individuals. The Karelitz in Boston, Nina in Chicago, Félix and the guys in Madrid (and now Kuala Lumpur), Alex, Marta, and Helgi in Barcelona, Taha in Sweden, Tom in San Francisco, and Symone in Dubai. It really is a small world if you’re just willing to get out there and start exploring. Yesterday, I learned that I might be in NYC while Helgi is there visiting a friend – how serendipitous. I am very appreciative of my Midwestern roots, but it is honestly mind-boggling how anyone would not want to at least attempt to see the world a bit! There is so much waiting at your fingertips, you just have to try.
Alright enough day dreaming for one Saturday afternoon, time to do school work.
