three cheers for new adventures

I woke up this morning to a new adventure! New bed, new city, new internship. The explorer in me is super excited, but the logical/pessimistic me is holding me back just a little...playing it safe. Don't have high expectations of a great time, don't get overly confident because that could all change, my first day of "work" at World Vision. Just be even-keeled, don't let your emotions have full reign and try not to spend too much time thinking of that darn rainbow-skyed future. Mostly, I just want to scream and do a little dance and yell, "I'm finally growing up!" at the top of my lungs.

So really...I just want to act like a child.

WAHOOOOOO! I'M FINALLY GROWING UP!!!



but really...we'll see...

jessi, life has ups and downs! but be excited now! because you have things to be excited about. you can be excited about the possibilities AND the challenges, because both are necessary to grow up. so jump and scream! because you ARE growing up. and you are ready.

jessi, if YOU are being pessimistic, what does that mean I AM BEING? Chelsea says life has ups and downs. She can think again. Why do you think we ask "What's up?" It's because we haven't found any ups in life yet. On the other hand, the more you are able to act like a child, the more growing up you will do! Cool! (Congratulations on your newness. Good luck with it all.)

the things we learn along the way... said...

Chris's comment is funny. I don't think I can be more funny than that right now.

JT! We are here TOGETHER!! This is something to celebrate. And also, I think you're here for the long hall. Let's dance.

Also also, Chris manages to take pessimism to a whole new lower level. Chrees, you can come here too. We miss our Eeyore.
