I bought a spiral notebook to help record my thoughts, ideas, and plans as I prepare for this trip to Hong Kong. Hopefully this will help my future posts become more interesting and useful.
To me, it’s clear that life is one big experiment. As a child I always loved science experiments, sports, nature, and of course food! Many people seem to lose touch with the things there were passionate about as a child. I refuse to let this happen to me. I refuse to “grow up” and become boring. I am an entrepreneur at heart and have always been pretty independent. This trip is a test to challenge myself to find a way to utilize my passion for experiments, sports, nature, and food with the hope that these experiences will mature me into a more well-rounded person.
This little gem was saved by my mother and included in a scrapbook for my high school graduation day. I think it’s pretty obvious this company turned a profit in the first quarter.
I have been saving for this trip for quite some time. I keep reminding myself that every $1 will bring much more enjoyment to me when spent outside the US. It’s going to be strange not having to work or go to school. I will be dedicating my time and money to learning the language and culture of Hong Kong in many different ways. I will do my best to document my struggles and success with the hope that it will be funny and helpful to others.
In other news, I had some basic business cards made via Vistaprint almost completely free. These have already been extremely useful for connecting and keeping in-touch with new acquaintances.
Much more to come.
