I cannot believe that I never traveled by myself before or taken a two week vacation. I am glad that I took the risk to take such an amazing trip. Understanding a different culture and a new language is difficult...

The Remote Year Honeymoon Stage

    0
I almost have no words to describe my feelings and thoughts right now. I am having an incredible time in an incredible place with incredible people. It is like study abroad in Scotland times 1,000.

One Week Down, Fifty-One More To Go

    0
It’s about time I started writing something down about this adventure we’re on. This prompt has been open no less than 3 weeks, and I’ve been starting to wonder if I’ve forgotten how to English on a fundamental level. I’m certain I haven’t, the topic is just too big. A ridiculously convenient set of puzzle pieces falling into place. Months of cautious anticipation, a whirlwind...

Week One Lessons from Prague

    0
After spending a week in a foreign country with 74 strangers I feel as though I’ve learned everything I possibly could and I’ve grown as much as any human can and I’m ready to go home now.   Just kidding.   What I have done is learned some very important lessons, which seems like it should be impossible after only one singular week – seven very short days –...

7: Timehop

    0
It’s a weird feeling to be waiting for your baggage at the airport and feel like, as one Remote so aptly described, you just took a huge hit from a hookah.

Birth.

When anyone or anything is presented to this world, in that very first moment, it becomes a realization that they will serve a great purpose. There’s a gift within that is to be revealed, and shared. We are more in tune with this when we are young,  because often times those are the years in which our innocence has not been stolen. During our youth,...

Why no one believes in you?

    0
Unless you are a twin you came into this world alone and it is highly likely you will die alone (this is probably true even if you are a twin). So you shouldn’t be surprised when no one believes in your cause, your product, or your ideas. One of the major obstacles that leaders, entrepreneurs, and artist encounter, is that no one believes in them....
