It’s 2:00 am and I should really be getting to bed. The problem is that my life is just busy. I work all day…and then I play in the evenings. There’s just so much I want to do while I’m here and I only have three months (at least in my mind) to do it all. I have lists and lists of things I want to do, which brings me to why a) I haven’t posted much this week and b) I think everyone should live like an intern.
I spent 17+ years of my life just east of San Francisco and I’ve never been to Alcatraz. How many of us do that? Spend years in a place and never experience it through the eyes of a tourist (ie for all of the great things it has to offer). Now I realize I’m in New York right now, but there are great things to appreciate everywhere. Maybe not as many as there are here, but there are…and the “summer internship” mindset really helps you see those things.
I started taking this approach when I moved back to P-town and it has made the experience much more enjoyable. If you can do that in P-town, you can do it anywhere.
I envy your childless years of discovery! I can go and explore Utah, I just want to wait until they are older and less annoying- ha! But I love your attitude 🙂
this is so true. i am taking that approach to this summer in alaska as soon as i'm not pregnant anymore. (cuz right now, nothing more than 20 minutes away is happening). live it up chica! (but try to get some sleep!!!). the fabulous thing about your journey is that you'll be in a position later to be able to do WHATEVER you want…and travel!!! hooray!
lived in utah my whole life…i went skiing ONCE (didn't like it) and i've never been to moab, zion, any of those parks. enjoy it while you're there!
