wan·der·lust  (wndr-lst)
A very strong or irresistible impulse to travel.

I am sure that many of you have seen this word floating around the social medias, especially pinterest. The irresistible impulse to travel. I feel like most people get a twitch of wanderlust every now and then. A passing urge, the silent need, but I feel like I need to self diagnose myself with this. I have started noting a few disturbing trends over the last few years. 

I cannot stay put. I need to be exploring and moving constantly. It started in high school but it was quiet, just a secret desire. In college it grew, and it called me to study abroad. I loved that experience. It was so amazing, but everywhere I went everywhere that I checked off my list gave me hundreds more places to visit. And so, in trying to shorten my travel list, I have expanded it to so many countries, states, islands and Continents. I get so itchy staying in one place. 

Unfortunately it all comes back to finances. Even if you can find a job that pays expenses, it rarely pays for other bills and debt. Which is awful. 

So plow on, work hard, get out of debt. That is my motto. Because once I get out of debt, I will be everywhere.
