Lately I find I have this tendency to always consider worst case scenarios for any situation and then really go off the rails and consider exponentially worse case scenarios, like having a heart attack, getting hit in the head with a space toilet, the sun exploding, the galaxy collapsing into a black hole. See what I mean? Shit can always get worse.
Within the past year I've started running long distance again and have found that I actually enjoy it. I ran cross country during high school (mostly to pad out my extracurriculars for college) and hated every minute of it. My new found enjoyment probably has something to do with this being something I'm doing because I want to, not because I have to.
Books are a pretty integral part of my identity, my parents would always read books to myself and my siblings before we went to sleep when we were younger and I think this helped to instill us with a belief in the importance of reading. As such, I read all the time and I usually have like 6 books going at any given time. Having a Kindle/iphone has been the best thing ever because I always have a book on hand.
I have this ongoing discussion with my brother about the nature of music fans, especially with regards to seeing live music. Some people maybe only see their favorite band once or twice and that is a big deal, while others see a lot of different bands all the time (of course this also depends on your location - if you live in like Billings, Montana your live music options are going to be limited). I fall squarely into the seeing a lot of different bands camp. I love seeing live music and try to see as many shows as often as I can. Getting older just means that waking up for work sucks that much more, but at least I'm banking a lot of great experiences.
