    I was watching The Hobbit the other day

    and I all I could think of was how boring and bland my life is. I don't want to have a normal job, get married, live the rest of my life in a normal house and be paying bills for the rest of life. I want my life to be an epic adventure, one that will inspire many to follow in my...

    and imagining things through other people's thoughts and descriptions. I want to go out and see everything for myself. I want to feel the thrills for myself, experience new cultures and just live. I want to go out and explore, so I know that when the time comes I was able to see...

    A Few Concerns For Nature Lovers

    A few things to add to this: 1) The 42 year estimate for the Oil Crisis is based just on the current rate of consumption with today's population. But as everything is dependent on oil it will happen a lot sooner than that due to increasing demand of population growth. We add...

    An Inevitable End

    How much longer do you think your way of life will last? The signs of the coming collapse are everywhere. What do you think is the reason you have things like cell phones, cars, and grocery stores? Oil. Everything you buy, including food, either has oil in it or uses oil in its...

    I Want To Be An Adrenalin Junkie

    I know I love the feeling. First you are nervous... "Can I really do this?" Your palms become sweaty, you get cold chills... and then it hits you! Your heart leaps into your throat and you can feel the wonderful throbbing in your ears. The world slows down for that brief moment...

    I Wish

    I wish I was an archeologist or an explorer like Indiana Jones, I'd love to travel to ancient ruins and explore hidden/lost tombs. Unfortunately I'm in the wrong country and my university doesn't even offer archaeology.

    Never, ever, will I settle... Not for the 9-5 job - that might be a means to an ends, but it is not the end. Not for the TV - it has it's place, but I'd rather live it than watch it. Not for the house - refuse to stay in one place for 10-20-30 years. Not for tourist attractions...

    Little Adventures

    Embrace It

    There's a whole world out there, but no adventures for me to have. We don't live in the medieval era. I am no man, I am just a woman, a young woman, who can't seem to find an adventure. I guess I'm just hoping for one to find me. Embrace me and shelter me.

    The Art of Spontaneity

    I am a very adventurous person, but unfortunately living in this society doesn't facilitate such people very well. I have to make a living which means having a job (mine is in an office working 9-5) This leaves very little time for adventures, but I try my best to be spontaneous...
