It’s 4:38pm… on a Wednesday in Ibiza.

The following is an entry from my journal on a buzzed occasion in Ibiza. The next morning when I read it I actually liked it a lot and thought I should share it. It’s how I feel about things in my life at the moment. I rewrote it like I wrote in the journal with mistakes and all. You can leave me your thoughts at the end.

Where I was when I wrote this.

“It’s 4:38pm… on a Wednesday in Ibiza.

I’ve been here now a few hours laying out and just watching the ocean & the sun as it dwindles down to set. I’m sitting here with a beer in my hand and thinking about life. My life in fact. I’m on beer #6 so yeah I’m buzzing. Something about being near the ocean alone with beer makes me so happy. I love the ocean. Oh & I love sun sets over the ocean even more. On days like this when I do nothing but admire the ocean or sun is when my mind works overtime. It makes me think about everything. It actually makes me wanna cry. It makes me wonder how I got so lucky. I mean fuck just a few months ago I was in a place I hate & now I’m enjoying life like it’s meant to be enjoyed. I know it wasn’t luck that got me here, but it still may have been. I know my luck ran out when I got my DWI & if it wasn’t for that I know for a fact I wouldn’t be here.

As I sit here I see everyone walking there dog. WTF why do people love dogs? I don’t get it, but anyway… Maybe they are lonely… No that’s not it. I’m lonely and I don’t have a dog… anyway. So I’ve been thinking about my life & well I have no clue what I wanna do with it. I mean seriously I love to travel but I also miss. I miss my family & friends, but know I don’t wanna be there forever. Ugh I have no clue I guess I’ll worry about that when I get home a year form now.

I mean really I’ve seen & learned so much since March 1st and can’t believe half the shit I’ve done. Not just the naughty stuff…lol. I’m horrible that shit makes me laugh, but I mean everything else I have done. I’ve done more amazing things then I think any one person should be allowed in a lifetime. It’s crazy, but I continue anyways cus I can’t get enough. I know I have my moments, but don’t we all? I think I wanna make everyone travel around the world, but when I tell my friends I know they think I’m crazy. I’ve learned more on the road then I ever did in school or college. I’m sure none of this makes since. I think I should stop, but you know… Everyone should love there life & be happy cus that is what matters.”

Me & my thoughts watching the sun set.

  2. Can totally see myself writing something like this next year, well except for the dog part. But yeah, I always wonder how I got so lucky and actually almost feel guilty at times. There is something about a sunset that just makes you realize how awesome life is, you know?

    • Scott I have no clue why I started talking about dogs… but I did…lol! I hate when I wonder how i got so lucky because we all know it wasn’t luck… we all know we worked hard to make it happen. The thing is when you are in such a peaceful state and enjoying life you start thinking maybe it was luck. Ahh we’ll never know…

      Oh & sunsets ahh are the fucking best thing in the world.

  3. You don’t have a dog with you because you couldn’t avoid quarantine 😛

    Dogs are great companions lonely or not, great pics I like the tones they set.

    You make it sound like you’re in a soft spot in Ibiza and won’t move 😀

    Enjoy it while you can 🙂
    Shannon recently posted..This site wants to be seen! You can too!

    • Thanks for the comment Shannon… true about the dogs & ahh Ibiza was awesome… had its ups & downs but too expensive I had to move on. I enjoyed the 10 days I spent there.

  4. Love these photos, Jaime. Sums up all that is great about travelling and stopping to enjoy the moment.

    • Thanks Julia… it really was nice to take a moment and soak it all it… it’s just awesome. I’m sure you will be having moments like this when you are on the road.

  5. Aww. I just love sunsets. Makes you think about life and the waves in the ocean can be linked to our inner emotions #emokidhereLOL

    • Sunsets are the best damn thing in the world… I love them! They really do make you think about life and enjoying the moment and living it to the fullest. I love what you said about waves… maybe that is true.


  6. I WANT A DOG!

    p.s. I love you.

  7. Jaimito, remember what I told you about “knowing” what you want to do with life? Just take it a day at a time. There is no rush… we are all going to the same place. 🙂 Miss you bud.

    • Your right Jorge… lol you did tell me that. I guess sometimes I just worry about what will happen after all this, but the truth is no one knows so I should stop worrying. You are right too no rush either… I’ll just enjoy it day by day. I miss ya too.

  8. Deep man. Very cool though. How is the beer by the way?

  9. I love the photos 🙂 (please don’t get tired of me saying that).

    It’s not luck…as a friend recently told me, “Willy Wonka didn’t just give you a golden ticket.” But, that doesn’t mean we don’t encounter some luck along the journey.

    I read quite a few travel blogs, and you seem to have this sense of excitement and appreciation on a different level than many people. And I love it.

    It’s difficult to know what’s next (shoot, I’ve been home 7 months and still don’t know), but it will work itself out when it’s meant to.

    • Jaja Heather I will never get tired of it… makes me so excited everytime I read it…lol!!!

      Oh man I love that quote… I may use it in the future. It’s so true… we just gotta live life! As for excitement and appreciation… I do have that. I know it was me that brought me here, but it’s just amazing. Some days I just don’t get it… like today walking around in Venice… insane!

      I know I don’t wanna go back home that is what scared me… damn you have been home 7 months now? Time flies by so fast… looks like things are now getting better for you so that is good.

      I guess in the end I don’t think at any point of our life we know what it is what’s next.


  10. I love your silly (and not so silly) thoughts. Thinking about life is heavy stuff, been doing a lot of it myself lately.

    I love sunsets too!
