Review: Project VanLife by Trevor DeRuise and Sierra Davies

Title: Project VanLife
Author: Trevor DeRuise and Sierra Davies
Publication date: October 31, 2014

Summary:
Get inspired and come along on the adventure of a lifetime. Learn what it takes to step outside of your comfort zone in order to live a life fueled by passion. Join a 22-year-old professional mountain bike racer and his girlfriend as they enter into the world of entrepreneurship in order to keep their dreams and passions alive while they transition from “college life” into the real world. Following their hearts, these two dreamers set out to chase the largest professional mountain bike series in North America during the summer of 2014. The epic journey has them living out of a used van for 90 days as they drive over 15,000 miles on an almost inexistent budget. All the while, they struggle to run several business and philanthropic endeavors from their rolling office in order to fulfill the vision they see for their lives. This book illustrates the devastating heartbreak of defeat and the heavenly thrill of triumph only available to those who dedicate their lives to a purpose greater than themselves. Let these young adventurers motivate you as they lay it all on the line to prove, firsthand, what VanLife is all about.

Review:
A little different from my normal reviews, this book is non-fiction and somewhat autobiographical, as well as being self-published. But stay with me here, because I have nothing but amazing things to say about this book.

While following the adventures of Sierra and Trevor as they trek across the country living out of the back of a van, I laughed, I cried, and I came out the other side feeling wholly inspired and alive. Project VanLife chronicles the stories of two seemingly everyday twenty-somethings with a thirst for adventure, and the determination to make their dreams a reality.  It felt like reading an awesome novel about a summer roadtrip with great characters, but one where you're like, "This would never happen in real life..." - but that's the awesome thing about this book, is that these are two everyday REAL people just trying to get by, while carving out a meaningful existence for themselves. 

This book has a little bit of everything - enthusiasm, adventure, comedy, love, and inspiration.  And by the end, you'll be ready to jump off the couch and go tackle your own projects, make your own dreams a reality. In a time where it seems like all we hear about is the mountains of debt, poor economy, lack of jobs, and generally negative outlook for twenty-somethings today, this book is a refreshing reminder that with a little bit of motivation and determination, you really can do what you put your mind to. Recommended for anyone who has even an inkling of a dream inside that they want to pursue, anyone who wants a little inspiration, or anyone looking to live an amazing adventure vicariously through others ;)

Theo chia sẻ của những bạn du học sinh đang đi du học Nhật Bản thi làm nhân viên chạy bàn là cơ hội rất tốt để các bạn cải thiện trình độ nghe nói tiếng Nhật của mình. Bởi đặc thù công việc đòi hỏi phải giao tiếp nhiều với khách hàng, ghi nhớ nhiều món ăn có trong thực đơn nhà hàng.
Công việc làm thêm khi đi du học Nhật Bản vừa học vừa làm có rất nhiều. Điều quan trọng các bạn cần phải biết phân bổ thời gian hợp lý giữa việc học và việc đi làm. Tiếp đó là chi tiêu có kế hoạch. Được như vậy chắc chắn các bạn sẽ có đủ tiền trang trải chi phí sinh hoạt cũng như học phí của mình mà không cần người nhà bên Việt Nam hỗ trợ.

Việc xin visa du học nhật bản trong những năm gần đây đã thay đổi rất nhiều, tạo điều kiện thuận lợi hơn cho các bạn trẻ có ước mơ chinh phục đỉnh cao tri thức tại đất nước này.

Just read the Temple Wars Novel on Ganesha! The story is well told through a parallel protagonist Tarun who helps Ganesha retrieve his objects from the spirit world. It's a page-turner that will have you wanting more. You guys should check it out! Temple Wars
