10 Things to do Before You're 30

Denk blogs the same stuff!

1. Drive a wickedly cool car, even if you have to rent it. "Wickedly cool" is defined as any car that turns heads on the streets. They say life is a journey and you should enjoy the ride.
Still on the TODO list. I'm pretty sure I've ridden in one but I probably don't trust myself to actually drive one. Aren't they all manual? Yeah, I don't do manual...
2. Date against type. Better yet, date somebody "dangerous." Waking up tied to a bed with a person who has more tattoos than brains will give you stories to regale other members of the old-age home in your dotage.
Consider this done.
3. See the world. It's much easier to do when you're 22 and footloose than 35 with two bawling babies in your backpack.
I don't feel like I've seen much, or enough. Especially when I see how many places my high school mates have been to (thanks a lot, Facebook). Still want to finish Asia before I take on Europe. No bawling babies - hopefully just me and my hub.
4. Live in a cool place.
Live? Does stay count? If so, the Hyatt at Coolum takes the cake!
5. If you're going to drink a lot, do it when you're young. Getting sick on cheap white wine after 30 is pretty pathetic. Young drunks sometimes get away with being "cute," though you may still have a lot of apologizing to do. Get this experimentation out of your system and you'll appreciate finer spirits when you get older.
Ft. Lauderdale FI 2004, Waikiki HI 2005... I'm done. Definately.
6. Take risks with your job. Most people end up changing direction in their careers after their 20s anyway, so, take the time to figure out what you want to do. There will be time enough to be a cubicle drone later.
I don't think I've taken risks. I've gone after what I want and I think that's enough... right?
7. Do something physically adventurous. And do it OUTSIDE! No one will ever be remembered for playing Nintendo or watching every single episode of "Friends." Enjoy your body while you're young, push it to its limits!
HEY. I've seen every single episode of Friends (amongst other series')! Got forced into physically adventurous in the ninth grade @ Camp Knox. Then there was Diamond Head and Maunauili Falls a couples year's back. I've (tried to) surf, I've skiied... Still lots to go, definately.
8. Take your parents to dinner. It gives you a chance to show your parents that you are an equal and that you are responsible. It's also a chance to show your appreciation for all those dinners they bought over the years.
9. Do volunteer work. You may be broke, but you can give your sweat and earnestness to a cause in which you believe. In addition to improving your world, you can allow yourself to be exposed to others in the world.
Planted a few plants once, went to a few benefits... probably not enough though. There's a difference between doing volunteer work and doing something you want to do without any benefits to you, at all.
10. Use this decade to go to extremes. Climb the tallest mountain you can find. Picnic at midnight. Learn to sail. Talk to strangers. Road trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Take a midnight drive to the beach then stick around for dawn.
Tallest mountain - Diamond Head? Balmoral at sunrise... okay, still got a bit to go =|

why won't you give me a chance

I have a feeling, and correct me if I'm wrong, that you're one of those lost souls. One of those guys constantly on a quest to find themselves. And normally I'd find that romantic if I thought you had a chance of succeeding - but I don't.

Why is that?

Because you can't stand to let anyone down - you can't say no. That's why everyone likes you. That's why you'll probably get more dates than I do tonight. But you're never gonna find yourself if you don't do what you wanna do and not care what anyone else thinks.

So you don't care if anyone likes you?

I try not to.

Y'know maybe you're afraid that if you care about someone, you might get hurt if you do?

Maybe. But that conversation will take longer than three minutes.

Baby, it was uncool to love me
Then leave me standing here now
Without a goodbye
And maybe I am the fool you call me
Cause I'll be here standing, waiting
To hear you say to me

I'm ready (you know I'm ready)
To love you (to love you)
Forever (forever)
And ever, baby
Come and love me forever more

Sometimes, when I'm alone I feel sad
Cause I know you'll leave me once again
And take my pride
And maybe I am the fool you call me
Cause I'll be here standing, waiting
To hear you say to me

I'm ready (you know I'm ready)
To love you (to love you)
Forever (forever)
And ever, baby
Come and love me forever more

And once again I'll be right here
Waiting to share your love
But oh this time for once
We'll forever be in love

Day dreaming and im thinking of you
Look at my mind
Floating away

Hes the kind of guy that would say
Hey baby lets get away
Lets go some place
Where I don't care
Hes the kind of guy that you give
Your everything, trust your heart share
All of your love till death do us part
I wanna be what he wants
When he wants it and whenever he needs it
And whenever hes lonesome love starved
ill be there to feed it

Im loving him a little bit more each day
Turns me right on when I hear him say

Hey baby lets get away
Lets go somewhere
Where I don't care


Today was my first day back at work after the Thailand holiday that blew me away... blew me right away! I loved it! Ya'll will love it...!

You're beautiful but you don't know
Can't see what's there inside your soul
Always feelin like you're not good enough
You wish you could be someone else
Sometimes you just can't see yourself
But I can see just who you are, who you are

You're exceptional the way you are
Don't need to change for nobody
You're incredible, anyone can see that
When will you believe that?
You are nothing but exceptional

You never you think you measure up
Never smart or cool, or pretty enough
Always feeling different from all the rest, oh
You feel so out of place, you think you don't fit in
I think you're perfect in the skin you're in
You're just perfect just how you are, just how you are, yeah

If you could see the one I see when I see you
You'd know how lucky you are to be you
I see through into you
