Being in Alaska has been truly amazing so far. The sights have been breathtaking, and so different than anything I've ever experienced. One of the main reasons I did this was because I was tired of living in a major city and feeling the social pressure to constantly go out and do the "cool" thing, feeling exhausted, but feeling more afraid of being left out, thus always doing things I never wanted to do, and never being quite sure what the fuck I ever even wanted. In a place like that, there's so much constantly going on, events being promoted by friends and social media, and that realization is always followed by the feeling that if you don't go, you're missing something. I decided I didn't want that for myself, and I left all of the people I loved, and a place where I was comfortable to learn how to be happy with doing only what I know I want. And I think it's working.
