— I don’t like the idea of “a sense of adventure”
that I’m not even sure who brought up…but I’ve seen it everywhere since I came to America.
The idea of throwing away your current life to just jump into your car and drive off with the top down towards nowhere. Stay at cheap motels, have an adventure in the wilderness, go rock climbing or something, and fuck all responsibilities to the people that you left behind. Doesn’t that sound amazing?
I hate traveling. I hate having the wind in my face, whipping my hair around to such a tangled mess that I’d literally want to kill someone. I hate cheap motels with dirty everything. I hate camping out and not being able to sleep or lose alertness because I fucking hate bugs. I hate leaving behind my life like that and going off.
I don’t understand these people who want “adventure”
Personally, I think of “an adventure” as trying something new, experiencing something new, or going somewhere new, even if I don’t actually know what. Looking for my classes on campus, finding a new store, trying a new food at a new place, or they can be experiencing a new country, or randomly going hiking in the woods one day.
Snow cup was a total adventure, because it was fairly spontaneous, somewhere I’d never been before, and my first big tournament, carpooling with people I barely knew, staying with someone I’d never even talked to before, etc.,.
Relay for Life was an adventure, because it was my first time sleeping outside, and on a track (I don’t suggest it), and in a tent. Especially a 2 person tent with 4 people.
I love my adventures, and they (usually) never last extremely long, but going with a friend or alone to somewhere new is always fun. I love my adventures, and wish I could have more of them. :)
