For a few years now my dad has been convinced he gets a "Birthmonth" instead of a Birthday. We always end up arguing (in a joking matter of course) that he doesn't because he also claims he gets a "Father's month" instead of day too. Well this year I was told by my mother that I get a Birthmonth :) This weekend we are going to celebrate my 23rd year alive and take a little trip. We are going to start out by going to our cabin and then making our way to Yellowstone National Park. It's been such a long time since I've been to the park. The last time I was there during the summer/fall is when I was about 3. In middle school our 8th grade class took a week trip to the park... in the middle of the winter. I wish that trip would have been done when I was more adventurous, but at the time I was not a fan of snow or being cold. I did enjoy the daily cross country skiing- which surprised me because when I have tried to do downhill skiing I usually end up hurting myself and hating skiing. I am however looking forward to this fall trip and breaking out my camera again. It's been a while and I'm not a fan of that. Now that I'm down to one job again I think it's about time I start working on that again. Hopefully the colors are changing and we see some wildlife, even if we don't I'm looking forward to spending time with my family and just taking it easy. Mountain time :)
And to continue my 31 Days Project...
DAY 2. What makes you uniquely you?
Questions like this really make me think because I am kind of in the middle of figuring out who and what I am. I am not someone that likes to examine myself, but that is something I am trying to change. I am someone that craves realism, even the "hard truth" part of realism. I am not someone that like things to be sugar coated. I am someone that is curious about what makes people act the way they do. I don't voice my opinions for the sake of argument, in fact I am someone that will only voice them if I think someone is willing to listen. I am someone that is a work in progress. Daily I am being refined by God. Daily. That means I am being changed daily. I think that is what makes this question difficult for me to answer. I am not sure what makes me unique. I am me, I do not try to be someone else. I am happy being me.
