Toot toot! Beep beep!

Daily Prompt- “Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.

Not quite, but almost…

This prompt is very accurate.

When I think about my qualities, I immediately start focusing on my bad ones. Those are easy to list!

As for good ones? Hmm…those take a little while to remember.

My favorite thing (that comes to mind first) about myself would have to be that I am adventurous. Not in any certain category, but throughout life. I enjoy trying new things and taking risks. I like seeing where actions lead- good and bad. I like experimenting and seeing what works and what doesn’t. I wouldn’t say it’s a bravery kind of thing, but just sort of bold I guess. I don’t mind screwing up and I admit it when I do even when I would rather hide under a rock (for eternity). I will, at times, become shy in certain environments and be less prone to step out of my box, but for the most part I enjoy trying things my circle of friends hasn’t ever tried.

To me, the funnest part of this “quality” is that you can tell your friends about it and possibly get them to try something new or warn them against it! Even though they probably won’t listen. Hell, I don’t either so I can’t say much. Ha ha!

I have been called a risk-taker before, but to me that refers more to the outdoorsy person who jumps off of cliffs and out of airplanes. The things I explore aren’t life threatening- mostly.

I think to live life to the fullest extent, we should step outside of our comfort zones every now and then. Sometimes we discover something we enjoy outside of our boxes. I’m not suggesting trying every recreational drug the market has to offer or anything crazy and possibly permanently damaging to your health. I’m saying try: mountain climbing or adopting a pet from the local shelter or volunteering for a charity or starting a new hobby or traveling the world.

Those are all on my list of things to do before I die. One step at a time…

She was exceptional…

I, for some reason, enjoy coming up with unique ways that I could die. No, no, I’m not insane or mentally unstable. I am writing my obituary. Here goes nothing…

Candice Lauren

Age 100, of New York City, NY, died tragically Friday due to¬† falling off of Mount St. Helen during her vacation. It has been said she was trying to climb it before she died…

11 and a half hours later…

See, I started this blog (like an idiot) before I left for school this morning¬† around 7:20 with the great intentions of writing something interesting and, if I got lucky, humorous, but it seems I can’t remember what I was going to say.

In high school, I had an English teacher ask my class to write our own obituaries. I thought it was cool and thought I could come up with some weird way that I would “die”. Some of my fellow classmates did not think the same way as I did. A few were astounded and replied with, “seriously? like o-m-g that’s so depressing!” while others replied with “ummm okay? whatever you say crazy teacher.” Only a few, and I mean one or two, replied with “wow cool! okay!” That was me.

BUT I never could come up with a really random, unique, hilarious way to die. I’m not saying death is hilarious in any way because it’s not.

All I could ever come up with would be the typical funny things like falling off a cliff or forgetting to open my parachute after jumping out of a plane or sucking in too much helium because I wanted to sound like a chipmunk 24/7.

Now that I think about it realistically, all I really hope to accomplish during my lifetime is happiness. I hope when people hear of my death (hopefully years and years and years from now) they say, “she was exceptional…” I want to be remembered.

So I guess it looks like I can’t write my obituary. I have too many creative ideas to get out.

 

Even though this is random and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with this post…I found this funny.

That could be me…or is it already? :O
