I've been thinking about doing a lot of different things lately. I've been wanting to learn the violin, go rock climbing, start a side business, and drive to the west coast, just to name a few. I'm not exactly sure where these urges started or why they're just now coming up but it seems that something in me is stirring.
Part of this may be caused by my age; I'm not old by any means but in October of 2012 I turned 30. I've been living in the same house working at the same job for roughly 8 years now and I wonder if I'm starting to feel like I'm letting life pass me by. I'm sure this is a very normal feeling around my age and probably every milestone birthday from here on. I want to make sure that when I hit 40 I don't think to myself, "What did I do for the last 10 years?" I want to be able to look back and say "Wow, look at all the fun I had, the people I met, and the work I accomplished."
I'm going to start right now, right here. I've attempted to start several blogs before and on each of them the very first post is something like, "I've tried this before and it didn't work, here we go again!" So, I'm going to make this blog known to as many people as I can so that if I take too long of a hiatus from posting someone might ask me what's going on. Everything posted here is going to be personal thoughts, projects, inclinations, or whatever else I feel like. I've always been an open book when asked and I'm changing that. I want to become an open book even when not asked but without being intrusive, on this blog.
