No, not my wedding……Less than one month from today (on 9/21) I will catch my first of a series of one way flights, leaving behind Colorful Colorado. For some the idea of being jobless and schedule-less is no big deal, but for me it’s a pretty big departure from the life I’ve known for the past 16years. And I know I’m not alone in saying that the uncertainty of it all is a bit frightening. For the first time in my life I’ve purchased a one-way ticket without knowing exactly when I’ll be returning. On September 26th I’ll hop a redeye from LA to Taiwan for a one day layover before hopping over to Thailand where I’ll wander for a bit. I don’t know when I’ll leave Thailand exactly, but eventually I’ll be moving on.
I’ve always lived a busy life; but with work, training/running, friends and family it makes for a tricky balance and a lot of tight schedules. In less than three weeks the timing will slow and I’ll try and shift life to a ‘deal with it as it comes’ mentality. This past month I’ve had a small taste of life on the road, spending nine days of August in Hawaii and California.
This month also marks another big anniversary for me, 10years of being in Colorado as of August 9th. One of the best decision of my life, and one I definitely do not regret in any way. The countdown is also on, I only have 13 more days commuting from Boulder to Aurora! Holy cow, after 6years I can’t express enough how excited I am to no longer be making that commute on a daily basis. But right now I’m really looking forward to enjoying the next month at home in Colorado with friends and hopefully lots of mountain time. So anyone who wants to get out, let’s plan something fun!
