Skill-building is one of life’s most impactful, fun, and important pursuits. Our skills make us into more interesting, more useful, happier people.
- Work skills can gain you money, respect, and great job security.
- Social skills can make you friends, boost your romantic life, and make people want to be around you.
- Other skills can bring you joy and pleasure, such as playing a song on piano or guitar, surfing a wave, or knitting an ugly Christmas sweater.
Basically, skills are great. What’s the smartest way to develop them? [click to continue…]
I’ve been wanting to visit Thailand for a long time. Why?
- Cheap massages (!)
- Cheap thai food (my favorite type of food)
- Amazing beaches
- A new culture to experience!
- Newer reason: I moved to Seattle, and am required by law to take “sunlight vacations”
I’ve been here about a week so far, and Thailand does not disappoint. See Thailand…
Day 5: Rest Day
I’m not one of those travelers who has to see and do everything every day. I’m perfectly content to take a day to rest and relax, because I travel to enjoy it, not to check off items on a bucket list. That’s what I did on day five, except for one scrumptious exception. JAPAN OVERLOAD!
I should note that all of this so far has taken place in Asakusa. I haven’t even been to other places in Tokyo yet!
7:30 AM — Breakfast
When the guys wake up, we’re going to the world famous Japanese fish market, where tuna are auctioned off for as much as $1.76 million. More Japan!
I’ve done it again. I’ve taken an impromptu trip to Japan! I’ll only be here five days, and then I’m going to Bangkok and (probably) Chiang Mai in Thailand to meet a friend.
This trip is different from any other I’ve taken for one reason: Japan!
