Beyond the Usual

I must admit, in the eyes of many I have a relatively boring life. My world revolves around school work, research, books, students. My routine includes home, school, home, school, and some more of school. As my friends told me, I do not have a boring life, but rather, I have the most boring life. But the way I see it, I find everything that I do, fun, and enjoyable. Until one of my friends, suggested that I should do something beyond my usual routine. For reasons I cannot anymore remember, I considered that friend's suggestion and decided to look for something crazy. Something crazy to me, at least. And that crazy thing was white water rafting. I went rafting with some of my friends in Church. I got "addicted" to it, so I decided to do something crazier than ever. And that is wanting to get a training to become a river guide. LOL. And I am going to do it. Have you done anyhting crazy lately?

nope...i haven't done any crazy thing lately...i think..lol but i must say, that your lifestyle is somewhat similar to mine...i go to school, home, then sometimes on a casual job, church...that's all...i've heard my friends tell me that my life is boring..but who cares?...this is my life..and as far as possible i don't step over other people's life... i think, each person has his own view on what is an exiting life and what is a boring one...it depends on one's outlook...but i enjoy my life..i do enjoy it despite all the downside of it...

Hey eden_shii. :). It is true that two persons can look at the same thing differently because it all depends on how one sees things. But I must say that the world is also worth discovering. Just try getting out of a familiar circle, and you'll get to see the world like you have never seen it before. ;)

Your life sounds a lot like mine, but I don't find it boring I am quite content with my life. I haven't done anything crazy, but good on you for taking up the challenge and finding something new you can enjoy.

Hey Pilabra. Actually, it took me sometime to think about the challenge that was given to me because I find my life very satisfying already. Just by merely trying to find out whether my hypothesis is true or not is already more than exciting to me. But, when I took the challenge, it added so much satisfaction, and I have realized that there is lot more to life than what I used to think. I mean there is so much more than our human minds can comprehend. So, I encourage you to, also, try other things Pilabra, and you'll get to not just see what I'm talking about, but you will also get to understand it. Think about it. ;)
