Henry Rollins said, "Life is full of choices, if you have the guts to go for it." He also goes on to say that he hates people who complain how boring their life is. I think it's safe to say he'd hate me. I'm slowly realizing that if I want my life to be interesting, I need to make it that way and not wait around for someone else to make it interesting for me.
Nothing would be cooler than designing something and then making my own t-shirts with that design.
3. Hike the Appalacian Trail
Probably the most unrealistic on my list, but ever since I've seen a documentary on it, I've wanted to hike it. It's a 2175 trail from Maine to Georgia (even though I'd probably hike it backwards). Depending on your skills it can take anywhere from 3 months to 6 to hike. Sometimes there are places you can rent a space to sleep and sometimes there are wooden decks built to sleep on, but sometimes you're sleeping on the ground, day in and day out. If you start your hike to early you'll have a little (or a lot of) snow. But the scenery is beautiful and for me I could see it being a very personal, getting to know myself experience.
I don't remember when I first became interested in Istandbul, but it's a place that I've always wanted to visit. It seems like this past year as been enforcing that desire since it seems that Istanbul keeps popping up everywhere for me, in books, magazines, tv, random pictures of Hagia Sofia. It is very beautiful and has a feel that appeals to me.
