there's Nothing wrong with trying something new, here's some ideas on what you could do

It isn't scary, you just have to get out of your comfort zone and do something that your parents aren't telling you to do for once.

At some points in our lives we seem to get stuck. I think it is when we get to the college age of 19-23, we have no idea what we are doing with our lives anymore, all of those ideas we had when we were kids seem stupid now and that if you did them, you'd somehow become the family disappointment. You might try something and still be a disappointment, but hey, at least you did it.

1. Take a different type of class that you would never think about taking.

I don't care if your major is medical, take that art class and learn something new, you may find that you are really interested in this and want to make a hobby out of it, or even a career. You can't make yourself not do something, in fear of disappointing others. You can't make everyone happy.

2. Move somewhere new

Now, this may seem as a bit of a stretch, but move out of your hometown and go somewhere new. Different opportunities arise in different locations.

3. Get a tattoo or piercing

If you are afraid of commitment and want to do something interesting, get one of these. Piercings are less permanent but you still have to commit to the idea.

4. Travel

Whether this be to another state or a different country, this will put your mind in perspective on what you are missing out on.

5. Get your own apartment

Stop living with your parents and make yourself be financially dependent. Yes, the comfort of home is nice, but you can't live with them forever.

6. Go to college in a different state

This will force you to get out of your comfort zone, you literally have no choice.

7. Go hiking

There is nothing more freeing than getting to the top of a mountain and being able to look out over the trees.

I don't care what you do, I just think that people sometimes get stuck and can't figure out what to do next, do something for yourself, do something that is going to make you get out of your comfort zone, this will most likely change you into a different person.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
