Thinking about things…

It’s 2am and I’m sitting in my living room wide awake.  I went to my friend’s birthday party and had a great time.  I got to see some friends and just have fun.  There was one thing…I was expected to drink.  I turned 21 in July and now everyone who is also 21, and some others assume that I’m going to join in.  I don’t see why I need to.  I had 4 Mountain Dews at the party and that kept me going..haha.  I didn’t feel like drinking and usually don’t.  I don’t understand how people can have fun by going to bars and just standing around.  I need and want to keep moving and be active when I’m hanging out with my friends.  Earlier today a few of us were riding 4-wheelers around the yard and it was the most fun I’ve had in a while.  My friend, Matt, has a barn and we cleaned it up so that the party could be in there.  I enjoyed this…I got to spend time with him and just talk about whatever is going on.  He, his girlfriend, their friend, and I all went out to dinner to celebrate his birthday earlier this evening and again, I had fun.  Then we got back and everyone started to arrive.  This is when I got instantly bored and wanted to go home.  Don’t get me wrong, I love being around lots of people and dancing and talking, but I didn’t see the point in having the keg and all of that stuff.  it was completely legal and we were all of age, but it just wasn’t and usually isn’t my thing.

This probably isn’t the best segway but that brings me to my point.  College is supposed to be about learning new things.  This doesn’t just mean academic but social and life lessons as well.  I want to try new things like hiking and snowmobiling.  It would be great to go out once in a while and just climb all day.  Maybe it’s a metaphor but I want to reach the top.  Ok is that an analogy? I’m not sure… Anywho…I need to find different things to keep myself busy.  I want to grow and I want to be able to add more experiences to my list.  College is almost over and I want to do as much as I can.  Time goes so fast and the past three years have just disappeared.  It’s so scary!!! Well I think that’s all I have for tonight.  It’s now almost 3am, I actually started this entry at 2:30, not 2am, but still, it’s late.  Until next time…

  1. Steve,

    I know how you feel when it is 2 am and you’re just thinking! I completely agree with wanting to experience new things during your college years. We live in a very diverse community where various social events take place. Your decisions help to build who you are and help mold who you become – so live by making decisions you feel comfortable with :)(I know we all like to throw a couple risks in there!)

    Talk to you soon
