What does an English nerd do on a Thursday afternoon? Read a book, watch an embarrassingly wide array of reality TV shows?
On a normal Thursday, you’d be right.
But this Thursday, this English nerd is going to do the exact opposite. This Thursday, I am going to seize the day for the first time in my life and go…
Why, you ask? According to my friends, it’s because I recently acquired a set of metaphorical balls. According to my fellow staff members on the school newspaper, it’s because I’m a highly dedicated reporter who is willing to take one for the team and write an amazing column about this extreme sport.
But really, the main reason is that I don’t want to go through life blindly without ever seizing the day or living life to the fullest (I know, two major clichés stuck right next to each other). I’ve been sheltered my whole life by my two lovely parents, but now that I’m legally an adult (albeit just barely), I figure that it’s time to take some risks, go on some adventures and challenge myself.
So, on that note, here’s a two-part challenge for you:
1. Leave a comment or email me about anything you think I should do to break out of my mold and to experience more in life.
2. Do something crazy yourself! It doesn’t have to be skydiving or anything like that, but just try getting out of your comfort zone.
How’s that for a stereotypical English nerd?
