BANGKOK, THAILAND - SEPTEMBER 22:  A backpacke...Image by Getty Images via Daylife
Sometimes I wonder what I'm going to write about. I'm a blank slate that day and have nothing interesting to say. I mean nothing.

And then something like this appears in my email inbox (thanks Fausel), "#120 Taking A Year Off" - from Stuff White People Like.

"It is most common for the person taking the year off to use this time to travel (see Post #19 for reasons why).   Generally, they will start off with a set amount of money that will use to travel for as long as possible.  This explains why a white person with an $800 backpack will haggle with a poverty-stricken  street vendor about a $2 dollar plate of food."

Problem solved.
