As a wandering traveler, I have become a little too good at making changes. I mean drastic changes, and not only that, they happen quickly. From one day to another, sometimes one hour to another I can decide on quitting a job, quitting a course, ending one relationship or another, sometimes friendships, that I realized way back in the past just took more than they gave. Usually the quick, sometimes irrational decisions, grow out from long hours of contemplation, sometimes it’s just the thrill of something new that imposes them.
Being the kind of person who tends to over explain every little thing, I’ve always wondered how and why people tend to walk away without uttering a word.
The time finally came, when the need for comfort came to outweigh the desire for adventure.

This might not always serve as a comforting truth in the midst of chaos but as unlikely as it might seem, there are always brighter times ahead. Ironically these usually come right after a hurricane.
A friend of mine, a psychology student, once told me “you cannot fully know someone’s inside”. At the time of this statement – my first semester at uni (fall 2013), I still held the position not wanting to believe this could be true.
