Sometimes a person just feels like a cog in the machine of modern life. When I find myself channel-surfing at 9 o’clock at night, bored out of my mind, I find myself longing for those childhood days when all I needed was my imagination to keep my happy for hours on end. I also miss those days when I thought all of my dreams were possible; now my adult mind seems to snuff out any dreams by reminding me of reality at every turn.
So I was pretty excited when I ran across this site last week: The Escape Plan – Annihilate the adultitis in your life! The plan’s authors also run an up-to-date blog and website with more ideas to escape adulthood.
I intend to embark on the 40-day Escape Plan challenge. So today I have to immerse myself in something I know nothing about for 15 minutes. I’ve always wanted to know something about cars, so I think I’m going to get-to-know my Toyota 4Runner. And if it goes well, maybe I’ll learn about something else!
Besides, learning new things makes me happy!
