My first birthday in Japan, I learned about an incredible way to celebrate your birthday – The Birthday Project. You accomplish as many acts of kindness as as the number of years you are. While I have not yet achieved the level of grandiose  acts that I daydream of, I figured that no act of […]

25 Things & Sweet Potato Cakes

Hello all! A little over a month ago, I posted a list of 25 Things for Turning 25. It is a list of year-long and daily goals to improve my quality of life by helping others (and living out a few dreams).  I had a fantastic birthday by sharing service with others, probably one of […]

Time to Celebrate…I need your help!

It’s March 1st, in Japan anyway, which means that it is time to officially kick-off my goals for this year. It is a list I’ve made to celebrate my quarter century on this Earth and all the things I want to do to make it better and improve myself. I was inspired last year by […]
