I am issuing this challenge to myself, primarily. If it happens to work with your current life status, then by all means, join me!
Challenge for day #264, September 22, 2011: As any follower of this blog knows, I love to move, to change scenery, to meet new people. When I stay in one place for long, I begin to wonder what I am missing out on—what else I could be experiencing.
But I’ve learned that there are things you can’t do if you are constantly moving around, things that I want to do—i.e. finish a college degree. So recently, even though my feet are itching to run run run, I’ve been considering sticking around here for three (or maybe only two) more semesters, allowing me to graduate on-time, or even a semester early. If I decide to do this, I know that I will need to alter my thinking a little bit. Instead of always wondering what I am missing out on—I need to concentrate on the things that I can do while I am here, and especially on the things that I cannot do if I constantly roam. So my challenge to myself today is to make a list of the things that I could experience if I decide to stay in Montana until I finish my degree. I’ve got a small start to the list:
- Coach a soccer team.
- Explore Montana—a supposedly beautiful state, of which I’ve seen very little evidence so far.
- Get a college degree without going into too much debt.
- Pay off my car.
