I also romanticize adventure. Checklist adventures like backpacking Europe or hiking Machu Picchu are fun, but I'm more excited by messy, unguided adventures that involve breaking rules, the unknown, or otherwise being far removed from normalcy. I'm generally fascinated by insular, divergent groups.. scientologists, live-action role players, nudists, you name it. They're fun to infiltrate with the right partner. Let's be impostors.
Trying to figure out why we Americans spend so much time on career/stuff/TV and not enough on the things we find important.
Scheming or fantasizing about how to change the above.
Consulting a startup aimed at helping people spend their time in bold and fulfilling ways.
Investing in real estate with some big (crazy?) ideas about how to help neighbors know each other. I think it's much more important than it may seem at face value.
Recently, I did karaoke for the first time (Radiohead's "Creep" and "Sex on Fire" by Kings of Leon) in public and made some fans. I always knew I was a pretty good singer, but I never really belted anything out before. Yelling makes it a lot easier to hit high notes and sound more like a rock star and less like a choir boy. It seems I'm good at singing.
