As of today, three of my best friends live internationally. 2 of them have moved to Auckland, New Zealand, and one of them has moved to Argentina, not a clue of what city. Aside from my other best friends living across the country, from the south up to new york...it seems crazy that we all live these exotic lives.
Who could ask for anything better though? To live by chance. To live your life differently every single day and meeting new people every single day. I love it. Some people are just made, once they grow up, to get out.
Has anyone every thought, which I know every one has, how different life would be if they went to a different high school or college or got a job in one place when you expected having something completely different?
I went to a small, southern baptist high school right outside of Memphis, TN. Did I love that high school? Not at all....I mean it had it's fun moments, but I never hung out with anyone in my grade and did the high school stuff they really did. I mean I attended the occasional movie nights and bowling outings, but I never really affiliated with the cliques in our school.
It's hard to keep in touch. Who knew while I lived in LA, that my best friend would live in Argentina? Or even two future business partners would be living in New Zealand? It's good though, because I still talk to them daily. I think it's good we keep in touch. It keeps every day of our lives new, not a rerun. Speaking of, time to run my 12 miles...The half is only a few weeks away....if I can do 12 today, I can do 13.1 in a few weeks...
