  1. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!

  2. I love the concept of your blog. I have come to accept that I will never be great at anything but I love trying new things and being a good spirited amateur! Very cool and inspiring, looks like you have tried some really fun things!

    • Thanks for stopping by! Life is so much about the things we try–much rather the journey to success than the success itself I’ve found. It’s like we try so hard to get good at something–and once we’re there–it never feels good enough–so I set out on this year in hopes to inspire others to give themselves a shot at everything as well. I just checked out your blog as well and love update on your summer happenings. Where did you go rock climbing? Love the NYC pictures (of course)

      • I was climbing at the watergap on Sunday, Joey had a top rope anchors course which allows you to learn how to set up top ropes so that you can take your friends out climbing! (I found your blog through his Facebook post) 🙂

      • Ah fantastic! Yah we were up there on Saturday for the intro course, sorry we missed one another! Best wishes for your move!
