This week I spoke at my high school and where, I'm completely aware of the fact that I graduated 9 years ago, I didn't feel like it had been that long. But, newsflash: I'm not anywhere near being 18 anymore.
This speaking engagement coupled with two segments I saw on the Today Show this morning has caused me to re-evaluate some of my goals and priorities in life. It's made me realize I need to push a little harder for some things I want and let go of those that are just silly. If you recall I had some pretty legitimate goals for 2011 and I've definitely kept up with them (save the pizza thing, but I did give it up for Lent). And since I've kept up with them, I've decided to up the ante and play ball.
This morning on the Today Show I saw a man in England buy a train ticket for a Shetland pony. Done and done. New life priority number one: Buy an airplane ticket for a Shetland pony. Take that pony to see the sights! The second segment had an "internet expert" commenting on a few things. I'm sorry...internetS expert?! That's a title? That's real?! I'm in. The bar has been raised, people. I'm going from internetS novice to internetS expert. For real.
I may be single, on the downside of 27 and own no furniture that my parents didn't buy me, but damn it, I can still do something with my life!
Hey life, challenge accepted.
