Why Seek Adventure?


Defining Adventure


The dictionary definition of an adventure is an exciting or dangerous experience. Personally, I consider anything that awakens something inside of me to be an adventure. Whether it’s completing a workout I wasn’t sure I would be able to or seeing a live musician on my bucket list- these adventures make me feel something. Feelings create memories and memories are all we really have as time passes in our lives. We all want to look back on our life and be flooded with memories that made us feel alive. That’s what adventures of all forms and magnitudes can give us.

College: Opportunity for Adventure


It’s never too early or too late to experience life to the fullest extent. But let’s be honest- there are definitely times in our lives where opportunity for adventure presents itself more than others. College is one of those times. Time spent in college is for most, the first time they really had complete freedom.  Your parents are not knocking on your door to wake you up for class nor are they waiting for your to return promptly by your curfew late at night. Hopefully you are also given at least some freedom in what you choose to study and ultimately how you want to spend the rest of your life. If you want to take the long way home from class or work up the nerve to ask someone new if they want to spend time with you, it’s all in your hands.  You spend your time how you want to spend your time. Please, seek adventure! But do remember that college is the time to set yourself up for success in the future. Just don’t forget to truly live.
