Welcome to my journal. I'm Laura. I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a Gemini, a writer, a teacher, a traveler, and a perpetual student of life. I believe that life is full of lessons, and that every day we can learn something new about ourselves. I'm constantly "rethinking" my future, and have wanderlust in my blood.

If I could spend my life traveling, I would. Mark Twain was quoted in Innocents Abroad , after a trip through Europe in 1869: "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely... Broad, wholesome, charitable views cannot be acquired by vegetating in one's little corner of the earth."

Here are some of my favorite quotes by the writer Paolo Coelho:

"Teaching is only demonstrating that it is possible. Learning is making it possible for yourself."

"Wisdom has value only if it helps us to overcome some obstacle."

"In order to live life fully, it is necessary to be in constant movement; only then can each day be
different from the last."

A few of my interests can be found below. I'm a lover of movies, mostly classics up through the '80s (but can be swayed to watch a good recent release too!). I used to watch a lot of TV shows (Dexter, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, Glee, White Collar, Justified, The Big Bang Theory, and The Vampire Diaries), but many of these are no longer airing, and I'm not really seeking new shows. Philosophically, I don't really prescribe to any religion or political bent, though I'm more left than right, and more Pagan than religious. I write on my journal about my daily life, shows and movies I've watched, pictures I've taken, and other things. I consider myself very open minded, and always happy to make new friends.
