looking to tomorrow

When I was a teenager I had views and thoughts of what I wanted out of life. There were things I knew I wanted like a career I loved, a job I could wake up to every morning and know that this, THIS is what makes me happy. Naturally a house and establishing myself in a residence followed by a family. Now on paper this is all black and white. Its all SoOoOo simple until you reality sits you down and explains to you that these things take time, and nothing will change that .
At twenty one years old, every single time a take a look back at my life from five years ago, two years ago, or even a year ago, its almost ridiculous how much has changed and how much I wish I knew what I knew now, but judged from the past alone, I can honestly say I’m excited to see what the future holds.

dancing in the sky

     I took up a hobby awhile back, a bit unconventional and perhaps even a little childish. I was looking for something to do on a particularly sunny and windy day last summer. I considered taking a hike, or going on a bike ride when it struck me to fly a kite. I had not flown a kite for years and the idea sounded ridiculous but I figured it was worth a go. So my buddy and I stopped at a convenience shop and picked up a kite, and me being me decided to take it to the next level. Before leaving I picked up just over two miles of four pound test fishing line. Driving to a local park (laughing uncontrollably) I thought of how overly optimistic I was and although this kite may fly high it will never ever go out 2 miles.
     Next thing I knew, I had just emptied my first of two reels of fishing line which put me over a mile out. As time went by the kite went further and further out of sight, until it got to the point we had trouble seeing it through the clouds, not to mention it looked as big as the hole on a needle when it was all the way out. It was all worth it to see the expressions of the people walking by thinking we were pretending to fly a kite until we pointed it out to them. In the end, it was remarkable how high the kite flew. Every time I fly a kite I remember why I do it. There’s nothing like being outside in the summer flying a kite with a friend.

temperature rising

     Today’s the start of something new, something huge, it could quite possibly even be something of a spectacle!! Why is today a huge deal you ask? Because I’m about to blow your mind with so much proverbial, metaphorical, and even philosophical knowldege that your going to shat your pants. Serious though, might as well call me the pandemic because I’m about to spread through the interwebs like a virus.

     Earlier I had an epiphanization, tell me about yours.
