Lets talk about airplanes. I just realized I’m supposed to fly on a whole lot of them on my upcoming trip. I’m thinking I should just bring Unisom with me and try to sleep through the whole experience. Ya know? Then I don’t have to use the airplane bathroom, I won’t care if I don’t get […]
Hey guys! Todays post is extra awesome — I just sat down with Paige, who lived in France while studying abroad.

New York is freaking awesome. If you don’t like it, seriously try it again. There is something for everyone. You don’t even have to leave Manhattan to find quiet corners and pretty views — seriously.

Hi, I'm Moriah. With an O.
Curious Cat. Impulsive Adventurer. Dog Person. Coffee Addict. This is the un-scripted tale of my quest to make the most of my 20s, and I really want you to play a part. Do you like passport stamps, sushi, motivational quotes, vinyl records, tiny details, sarcastic humor, and that satisfying feeling of I-did-something-with-my-life-today? Were gonna go to amazing places together. (And no, you don't have to be 20!)
