(For their botanic gardens, main streets and hidden treasures)

~August 2012 Cairns, Australia
(Childhood dream right here)

~(2011 or 2012)San Francisco, California
(Something tells me I'd fit right in)

~Mind you I shall be going skydiving on every continent I visit that has it.~

These are actually planned in the next 2 years... I wonder where I'll plan to go from now and well whenever later is.

*Yellowstone National Park,WY
*Istanbul, Turkey
*Bran Castle, Romania

****This is a pending two month vaca to Europe which most of the locations will be seen in about 2-3 years, due to a pending transition of jobs. Hope John follows through because I know I will.****


So it's summer, well been summer. Been an eventful one and will only get more exciting from here. I found an interesting section in one of my school books (yes gasp, a school book!). I would love to frame it actually but I'll have to choose the size of the frame, background and finally the gorgeous font that will accompany it. (I think of fun projects huh?)

~The Paradoxical Commandments~

People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help by may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
