Graduating high school is a big milestone in your life. It is kinda the turning point where you ask yourself... "now what?"... well at least where I come from that's what everyone asks. 90% of the kids I graduated with went off to college, that was their "now what", like the majority of young adults in the United States. But why? Why at the age 17/18 do we have to decide what we are doing for the rest of our lives? We are not taught to have our own ideas and creative minds in school. We are all programed to follow our peers in front of us never straying too far from the "normal" lifestyle.
Here I am at 17, where all my friends have decided to go to college and learn from more teachers giving off facts from a book. I honor that decision and I respect getting an education, but for some reason I can't see myself in a college dorm right now.
I guess I see myself in a small Volkswagen camper van with my sister with no agenda besides seeing as much as this world has to offer us.
So here's my blog to all my friends who have suggested this idea. The point of this online journal is to share my adventures with you guys, so while all of you are sitting in a 200 person lecture hall or your 9-5 job, you can live vicariously through me. Kidding of course, I just want to share my ideas and my experiences with everyone... well at least everyone who clicks on it.
