Here I sit once again...

A month and 5 1/2 days ago I sat here on my couch "celebrating" NYE. I find myself sitting here on the couch again, this time avoiding the response I have to do on the Seminoles legal case. The chronicles of Narnia is playing in the distance on our semi working television. Homework engulfs my left body side, a cup of orange "unwind" tea and a large bottle of smart water sit on my right; and here I am bundled up in cozy wear left to think about the greater things in life. Such as the fact that I am not a cat. I do not have 9 lives, so why should I not take advantage of amazing opportunities that come my way? What exactly am I protecting myself from? If anything. I know that money is tight on my end of the chain, but, if you want to try experience something why hold back? I want to travel so badly, and I will. I have talked about it for years with my mom. Once I am out of college I just want to go and see the world, that way I can appreciate everything else more and realize how lucky I am. I want to help the less fortunate and change a persons life, I want people to remember me as a role model and not someone they are trying to avoid. I feel like I see to much of this day to day with people I encounter with a negative vibe.
I was thinking about skiing today, and how I need to start taking it easy and start focusing on biking, but, the thought came to mind: in 50 years I will not be able to ski like I am today so why not completely enjoy what I am doing...take precautions..but only when truly needed. With biking I need to just go for it, what is the worst that can happen? I don't finish the race? I fall and go boom?...like that hasn't happened before..ha ha ha! 
I think that most of the time we spend our life worrying about the next thing to come, and right now I am in the place in my life more than ever...my main worry is how I will finish school. I have been asking for ideas and support but when I really think about it I know I am fine and that everything will fall into place because EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON! Right? 
Asher, Wally, Collin, Cas and Riley have really opened eyes to realizing how precious life is. When I think about taking precautions in life and being careful about what I do, I know that they would be out there doing it (or will be out there again) full blown because we only live once.
