Wanderlust and Beyond!

Heya Musings!

It has been a little over a month since I have arrived back to the States. While I’m here, I have trying to collect as much coin as possible to travel again. Yes, the wanderlust is real!

I miss traveling. So much so that I am looking into becoming a full time wanderluster.

And I can hear all of you now, “Well, aren’t you already working on becoming an author?” or “I thought that you were working on teaching now?” All of which are true. Though now, I see no reason why I can not add one more title to the list.

Personally speaking, I am not too hung up on titles to begin with anyway 🙂

Now that I have spent almost a year traveling, teaching, and building my name in the indie author world, I know that I can do this!

And that is why I am posting this entry. I want this to serve as a timestamp for me to ‘stamp out’ the last remaining negative thoughts that I have about taking on this new adventure. This is where I say, ‘So long sucker!’ to those last pesky dream crushing thoughts and ‘Hello beautiful!’ to every dream I have of me in a place I had only ever read about or saw online.

The real question now is: How do I go about letting the rest of the world know about my new permanent ‘wanderlust’ status?

Yes, this post is a step in the right direction, but what else can I do? How should a rebrand my social medias for Soprano Musings? Goodness knows that my YouTube and Facebook would welcome the change – lol

My most important question is: How do I incorporate my love of music (even as a Music Major dropout), my new found passion for teaching (and learning as a student of life along the way), with my wanderlust pursuits? Surprisingly, the name that I chose when I started my journey still fits – Soprano Musings is definitely here to stay 🙂

Though what about the rest? Now this is where I call upon all of you!

If you have any suggestions on how to make my presence known as a newbie travel blog (on a budge), where can I go to buy the equipment needed to share my travels on social media, what blogs should I visit for a few tips, or if you have a few places in mind that I should visit – let me know in the comments. I would love to hear from you, and I promise to check in soon with an update!

As always, be inspired and stay inspiring!

For Emily. You are not Alone.

*Trigger Warning: Attack/Violence/Rape/Abuse is all mentioned in this video*

I am sure that the majority of ya’ll have heard about the Stanford rapist and his sentencing.

Sentencing in this case is the loosest term possible.

My feelings regarding this matter are still raw, but I felt the need to do something when I heard this news. Anything to show my stance on this subject matter and to let the Brocks in this world know that we will not keep silent. To make sure that they know that this is not okay.

And to let the Emily Doe’s know that we will stand with them.

This is the letter that she read in court to her attacker. This is also the first time that I have read the letter period. I applaud her courage for being able to do this and I hope that she is able to find some peace in having said all of this out loud.

Thank you Emily Doe for sharing your letter with the world.

I sincerely wish you solace and hope that your letter reaches others who are in need of it.
