When I first started blogging, most of my posts were related to my adventures with music and friends. In 2008 through 2010 you could find me almost every weekend in a different city watching one of my favorite bands playing a show. I think one of the main reasons I started writing was because I wanted to document all the fun places I went.
Although I went to a few really amazing shows in 2011, my year lacked spontaneity and musical adventures. I was more responsible and less “in the moment”. I know that all comes with growing up, but some days I miss being young and being in a different city every week for the sake of music.
I’ve been trying to be be better with my money because all those years definitely burned a hole in my bank account. I know you’re only young once and blah blah blah, but I also wanted to experience OTHER things and that’s just what I did (Hi, Greece? Prince Edward Island? Florida?) I’m not saying that one is better than the other AT all. I really love traveling and seeing the world… But I do miss getting in a car with my best friends and driving to the closest town to see a show.
I really want 2012 to be more adventurous for me. I miss that part of my life a lot. I have a couple things planned in coming months, but I don’t want to look back on this year and think of it as another year that I missed out on a lot of things I wanted to do. I’m STILL young, I’m still in school, living at home and experiencing tons of new things. I want to enjoy it before I settle down into adulthood for good.
So here’s to a more adventurous 2012 with good friends, great music, lots of travel and hopefully not too much debt, hehe 🙂
What kinds of things do you want to do more of this year?
