Who's Excited for the Next 5 Years?

This girl.

I don't really know what the deal is. Even though we're coming down to the end of the semester, I'm swimming (eh, drowning more like) in work, and have absolutely NO CLUE what the future holds for me after graduation, I am just super-stoked for everything that's to come.

Right now it's 4:40pm and it's dark outside. (You think you East-coasters have it bad...try having the Rocky mountains 3 feet to the West. It gets dark hella early here.) But, no matter. Who needs daylight? Most of my favorite places in the world have 3 months of darkness per year. And I can't wait to get back to them!

Looking into Italy as a spring break destination. Scandinavia in June. I know, I know...crazy, reckless, hectic, even manic. That's about where I am right now. It feels good though. Something about life's fragility, the utter softness to it all. Life is for the strong, no question. But the essence of life itself is like a ham sandwich, tasty, satisfying, rich, and meaty...but don't go tossing it around carelessly or waiting 20 years to dig in. The time to bite into that pigly wigly is now!

You do not know what is around the corner. You do not know how many chances you'll get. And living everyday like it's your last may seem a little rash, but hey, one day you'll be right.

And then won't that feel good.
