The last couples weeks I've been going through an assortment of picutres I"ve taken over the years. I busted out some photos from Alaska, New Zealand, the road trip out to Iowa. Its been fun recalling all the stories that come with these small snapshots in my life:) It has made me hungry for another good adventure. I feel like I'm on the brink of going crazy if a good adventures doesn't come out the wood work sometime soon! I've found myself pulling... maybe yanking would be a better word... on the reigns these last couple weeks from throwing all responsibility and (little) finances aside to appease my restless moments of desperation for ADVENTURE.
Maybe the restlessness has something to do with my one year anniversary of being in Iowa coming up... strange to think I it's almost a year. I don't feel like it's been that long. I still feel like a newbie--maybe part of that has to do with my inability to sense direction out here. It was bad to start with but I feel like it's slightly worse not having reference points like mountains, hills, and mass bodies of water to guide me. I have the exciting experiences of getting lost in cornfields and wondering how long its going to take before some fed-up farmer comes out of his house with a shotgun locked and loaded ready to chase me off his property!

In the meantime, I will continue to be the responsible one. I will pour everything I have into what I have around me and not miss the moments I am in. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence right? I going to choose to look at my own
green grass and stop to smell the flowers along the way!

I have absolutely felt that way for the past year. I am totally ready for change, ready to move on to something else more stimulating. For me, I think it comes with being at a full-time job (which I don't enjoy) after living as a student for so long. I still miss the constant change of new semesters, summers spent somewhere new, the opportunities to just pick up and leave and have no financial obligations (student loans and other payments) Maybe I should become a teacher so that I can have some of that back again. lol!
