I’ve been trying to figure out what in the world I could write about.
Things that were out-of-the-ordinary in Korea, like skiing, are pretty hum-drum-and-a-bottle-of-rum back here. Of course, I’m sure adding rum to skiing would be all sorts of crazybad decisions…
I had plans. Don’t we all. Life had different ones.
In August I flew to Virginia—September, moved into an apartment in Pittsburgh—October, found myself in a surprise relationship—November, oh hello job.
Stable. Just like that. Well, sheesh.
But I refuse to ever do anything that isn’t fun. Because why would you ever waste time not having fun?
When I started packing up my life in Korea, I had some regrets about not doing enough. It turned out to be a pretty short year. But you know, I did at least one “awesome” thing a month.
Like I said, it was easier there, because skiing in Korea is basically an adventure involving human obstacle courses, and little things that are roughly normal there were crazyridiculouslyawesome, like the fishing-in-hypothermic-water deal, or spending the night in a sauna.
Decision: do an awesome thing every month.
After saying yes to going into the office on a Saturday, attending various birthday celebrations, and deciding to finally do those dishes that are starting to resemble the Eiffel tower, you ever realize you haven’t done anything…new?
So there it is: at least one awesome, out-of-the-ordinary, slightly crazy, new-for-you, thing every month that can be added to the “remember when” part of your brain.
You know what helps with a plan like this?
Dating someone who’s probably crazier than you are.
So to kick off this shindig, my first adventure starts in just a few too-short hours…
