From millionaires to middle class dads, people are investing thousands of dollars into space explorations. By space explorations, I mean visiting the moon and planets the same way tourists travel to Times Square. We must really be entering the future. We don’t know much about how these trips will work but curiosity always seems to take over. Surprisingly even the CEO of Amazon has taken an interest in this celestial road trip. He’s apparently preparing to get his feet into the space tourism industry. There’s even a name for this. One, if not the biggest, concern of this new endeavor is how safe these trips may be. Two space shuttles have crashed during flight tests already. What’s to say it won’t happen on a wider scale with people onboard? We could stand to lose some of the greatest people Earth has ever seen. This also makes me wonder where this leaves the astronauts. Remember them? They were the brave scientists who risked their lives with cutting edge technology to tell us what we’re surrounded by. Maybe this will contribute to the downward trend.
These are exciting times we are facing. We could be starting a new milestone with these launches. We might even find intelligent life out in space. I’ll remember to keep my eye on this new industry.
The strength it takes for me to answer these questions without either a scowl or with one sentence shows how much I've grown. But there are too many people asking me the same questions in the most life draining cycle ever. So I've comprised a cute list with answers they hopefully will remember for years to come. Feel free to take these answers for your own chorus of busy bodies in your life if the answers apply to you.
A prominent memory from my adolescence was debating with boys who had it worse in life. The variables would change weekly but the point remained: someone has to lose and I'd like to know who it is. There used to be a sense of pride that would swell up whenever I would reason my opponent into submission. But after living through some colorful romantic experiences, I started wondering how that mindset molded my outlook on relationships and love.
I'm a petty, neurotic and indecisive woman who likes a variety of things you probably don't care about. Why? Because I'm attractive enough for you to fantasize about but not attractive enough to make you want to fight for your honor. I'm also marginally intelligent but let's be real, you saw my photo and decided to ignore anything I may have typed here.
I'm not about to assume y'all know me so I'll just tell you what today is. Today is my birthday. As the title gives away, yes I am 24. I've made a lot of decisions, met a lot of people and spent a lot of time learning about this here life I have. Now it's time to sit down at this desk and give you all some golden nuggets I've picked up on the way.
Yes, some of the great things we do positively effect how we view ourselves. But aren't we tired of trying to be holier-than-thou all the time? It must get lonely on top of that throne. From there, everyone looks like heathens who are unworthy of the king's presence. They need insert-personal-moral-compass-here to be around him. If you're rolling your eyes at the thought of it, congratulations, you have vices and are relatable.
Whether it's my family members, coworkers or my beautician, everyone wants to know what's going on with my plans. Where are my offspring and husband?! It doesn't matter if I have ideas about other aspects of my life.
For the majority of my life, someone has tried to curb my adoration for curse words. Every reason from every person has fallen under these statements:
If I get too busy, overwhelmed or procrastinate too hard, you will not see me for weeks. I retreat and regroup. I go ghost.
