Day 1 July 3rd, 2015

Alright, so I guess I should start this off by "taking a knee".
I learned this term from a Will Smith movie, I'll remember the name later.
So, I'm currently in Charlotte, NC. It's July 3rd, 2015, aaannd, it's 7:38pm
with my next flight being at 8:55pm. That flight being scheduled to land at
approximately 11am in Madrid, Spain (!!!). Which gets us to the point of this
nice moleskin journal. Starting tomorrow I begin this little soul searching/phat ass
adventur. For 3 months I will be trekking all around Europe with my destinations being
Spain, France, Ital, Switz, Germany, and the Netherlands. Now, I have a Redwing 44 dickbox
with 2 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of pants, several shirts, and even more several undergarments.
I have minimal toilettries, minimal electronics, a moderate amount of Euros, and absolutely
no agenda or company. Why? Because at 20 years old I've already developed a pretty bad sense
of hopelessness for the life I had been living. The domestic life that everyone seems to pursue
by default is as appetizing to me as a plate of dog shit. And I mean that. Maybe I've developed
a nasty case of narcissism, but I feel too good for schooling, I have too much potential to settle
for a "career", I have way too many questions for me to stay in one place, doing one thing. So now
begins my travels, in search of the legendary keys. You know the ones. And my gut, and maybe the fates,
tell me that my quest starts in the East. What will happen? I haven't the slightest idea. I don't know
what will happen to me, or my life. Who I'll meet, how they'll affect me, man I don't know a fucking thing.
Except one. Regardless of what does happen, I will continue to move in one direction. Forward.

"and where do we go? those of us who wander the wasteland in search of our better selves"?
