With my study abroad adventures approaching this summer, I often get mistaken for a dreamer. I don’t know if it’s the fear my family has of me leaving the U.S. for Ireland, or the magnitude of the venture itself, but I find people making out my travel plans as if they’re a far off fantasy. Perhaps the fault is my own. When I speak of traveling, I tend to make it sound like a passive possibility.
If you don’t make traveling sound like a plan, it never will be.
Instead of saying, “If I go here,” say, “When I go here.”
If you set your heart on something and PLAN, nobody in their right mind will treat your goals as dreams.
BE ACTIVE AND ASSERTIVE.
Now go travel, little wanderer.
