someone I love recently asked me if i am someone who takes risks, or who will start taking risks. I wasnt sure at the time, but now i've realized, the answer is yes

and i think a lot of it comes from moving so much, different cities, states, houses, and schools, having to be brave, start over, meet new people, make new friends, over and over, my entire life thus far.
Until college, it was out of my control, due to my Dad's job transfers, but post college, it has been due to my choice to travel and live in cities I have always wanted to live in, follow my dreams, achieve my goals, etc.

And now I am leaving the comfort and stability of my friends and family in CA, to move 3000 miles to NY, by myself, without a job or apt, and doing everything on my own, with my goal and dream to live in Manhattan, and support myself 100%

that is a risk

and this quote motivates me to always take risks:

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didnt' do than the ones that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

Airlines ~ Pack Less or Pay More

A growing number of fliers are finding there's a price to pay for checking bags. Airlines are charging for bags that once were free to check and raising prices for fliers with lots of luggage, overweight bags and oversized bags. In May, United Airlines will become the first of the big traditional U.S. carriers to switch from two free checked bags to one. Last month, Southwest Airlines and ATA Airlines switched from three free checked bags to two.

Beginning May 5, United will charge passengers with non-refundable tickets on domestic flights $25 for a second checked bag and $100 per bag for a third, fourth and fifth checked bag. United now charges $85 for a third checked bag, the highest rate of any airline. Not all United fliers will pay for a second bag. Passengers flying in first or business class and those who have elite status in United's frequent-flier program or its Star Alliance partner program will not be charged.

Also on May 5, the airline will increase its overweight-bag rate (for bags weighing more than 50 pounds) from $50 to $100.
United says that one of every four passengers checks a second bag.
Most of the cost savings will come from burning less fuel because of fewer bags and reduced weight in the cargo hold.

Love Day - Valentines Day

We have a lot of love in our lives within many different relationships.
The love from friends, family, teachers, mentors, romantic, and more.
So just because you do not have one of these, does not mean you don't have love or aren't loved. Just having one person, one loving relationship, whatever type of relationship may be, is a lot. Just one.
Everything else is extra love and blessings.
Love with your heart and soul. It's worth it.
