Nothing fancy today. There are a bunch of things I do that are fairly unique but probably wouldn't ever come up on this site. Maybe some of them will give you ideas, or maybe you'll just think I'm weird.
I'm making a two week road trip back to Austin in the next couple weeks and will hit you up when I get into town.
"I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really feel bad for homeless people, but I feel awful for average people."
That quote has been stuck in my head all day. It just seems to... make a lot of sense to me.
Common man. that's awesome I guess, but I'm disappointed.. you gotta have something more interesting than this! You've set the bar high.
Hey, did you ever even consider the Winter Olympics curling team proposal I sent you (after all, I stole the idea from you and now arranging for it to happen). Now THAT'S awesome!
I had strep once... I waited as long as possible and the doctor told me if I didn't take medicine I'd die. He gave me some chewable tablets. I'll take medicine if I'm about to die, but that's it.
Never swallowed a pill? Take them at the other end do ya?
Seriously, you never had an illness as a minor, such as strep throat or an ear inection that required you to take antibiotics?
you're such a terrible liar.
1. what about the fist/knife fight we were in?
2. you know you have the scars to prove it.
Yes. Taiwan story sounds interesting.
I also know what you mean about the vision thing. My vision is good enough to get by, but I know that if I went for an eye test they'd recommended I wore glasses, so I don't bother.
You're probably right about Europe. It's not as exotic as some of the places you've been. The plus of it is that there are boatloads of really interesting places and cultures all within about ten hours train ride of each other.
One of the great things about being polyphasic is that my friends are on awful sleep schedules. Some of them stay up until 7am, others wake up at 7am, so at any given time there's a good chance that I have awake friends.
This morning at 7am Hayden calls and asks if I want to do yoga with him. Of course I do. This is the hot yoga, "Bikram", which literally translated means "the most severe torture known to man that somehow hotties can handle".
I hop in my car and head to his place. Hmm. The ride seems a little rough. Not to get too sidetracked, but I thought it would be really cool if I bought 19" rims instead of the stock 16" rims. It looks fantastic, but these stupid wheels have given me nothing but trouble. Literally every single one has gone flat, they have damaged my brakes, etc.
I've always liked the idea of a bucket list. However, it seems that for so many people a bucket list is simply a collection of things they think would be cool; a fantasy list. I want to avoid the idea that my goals are something that I would like to do but may never get around to accomplishing. I intend to complete everything on this list, whether that's within the next year or before I die.
I asked my Facebook friends for their suggestions on what to call my non-bucket list. I liked all the ideas, but Dan wins the prize for most comical with "pail plan" and Kel wins for most meaningful with "experiences yet to be had."
I've settled on calling my non-bucket list the Past:Present:Future list to emphasize that each of my goals is something that I've already accomplished, something that I am currently actively pursuing or something that I will actively pursue in the future. Nothing on the list is simply a dream.
Accepting that my goals will change, the list found on this page will remain untouched and serve as an interesting comparison to any future version of the list. The constantly evolving list can be found here and is organized by past, present and future: Past:Present:Future
