I love to travel. I love to see different parts of the world. I haven't been to nearly enough places at this point in my life and sometimes feel stifled by my career path. If I want to travel, shouldn't I have picked a job like Hotel Reviewer or Travel Channel Correspondant? The thing about traveling that I love is meeting different people. You can tell a lot about the area by the people that populate it. Words that come to mind:
Peru: simple, loving, family-oriented, know how to party.
Alaska: hard-working, strong, enduring, outdoors, know how to get liquored up.
Virginia: career-minded, packed cities, restuarants, good shows, know how to drink people under the table
Which of these places best describes me? Good question. Clearly I know how to drink people under the table--I have in mind a certain incident in '94 that ended with a victory spent with my head in the trashcan. But I digress.
The point of all this rambling is not to see which place describes you. Although I do think it would be interesting to hear which words people associate with the place they live (i.e. Rexburg, SLC, Cali, Massachusetts).
The point of this rambling is to say that I hate moving all around. I always miss people I've met. I suppose that if I stayed in one place my entire life, people would be leaving me rather than me leaving them. I'd rather be the leavee. Not the levee. The Leavee.
