Livin’ it up

So recently, turning older, reaching senior year, getting great internships, having to prove myself and so on and so forth
Has been making me wonder: when did life get so serious? When did I lose sight of the fact that there is so much I want to do apart from work, career and all the conventional things expected of us.

I started looking at blogs of people for 100 things to do before you die. I know it sounds crazy but when you actually look at the freakiest things people want to do, it’s actually quite eye opening as to what can constitute a fulfilling life.

Lately I feel sort of disconnected with myself and sort of lost because I’m not clear on what exactly what I want to do with my life, but I’ve come to understand that sometimes letting things be can sort out a lot of things in life. The harder you think the less fun life can be.

Hurricane Irene just touched NYC, while I was on the other side of the country, and honestly although it didn’t do much damage, external influences are uncontrollable. So instead of stacking life up with all conventional ways to ‘get by’ I’d rather live my life to the fullest, live on the edge, take some risks instead of being high strung and boring all the time.

After also being inspired by ‘Julie and Julia’, her blogging prowess, and her inspiration to do something that keeps her going, ive realized short term goals is the way to go. Over planning leads to over thinking and cutting out the fun in life.

So live dangerously, well kind of, being slightly risky and having loads and loads of fun. After all tomorrow is uncertain- live it up! I know Im about to…
