Shells

I’ve always liked shells.  When I was a kid I liked to put them against my ear and “listen” to the ocean.  I also just love the beach in general…

You’re probably wondering why I was just talking about shells or have a picture of shells.  I talk about them because I’m constantly trying to come out of my shell as a freshman in college.  I’ve had a lot of “firsts” within the past week, and the list keeps growing.  On Friday night I went to Hutzel and played Texas Hold’em for the first time, and I actually did pretty well.  Saturday I went to Barnes and Noble and finished “Blue Like Jazz” in 2 sittings, which was my first time finishing a 240 page book at Barnes and Noble (I will buy the book eventually though because it was amazing).  Last night I drove through downtown Fort Wayne for the first time.  Tonight I’m going to my first dance.  I’ve been doing a lot of fun stuff over the past week.

I will admit, I have trouble trying new things sometimes.  Like everyone else at times, I get self concious and fear that I will look stupid doing something I’ve never tried before.  I just worry too much sometimes.

I challenge anyone reading this to do 1 thing this week that you’ve never done before.  It doesn’t have to be something huge, just something to get you out of your comfort zone a little bit and to broaden your horizons.  Who knows, you might like the activity or meet new people.

    Thanks for the comment Ash! I’m glad to see that there are people reading my blog! And I agree, the teenage years are a great time to come out of your shell because it will help your transition to adulthood. Good luck!

      Thanks! I’m trying to be more adventurous, but not too crazy. I also realized how much better college was than high school within the first few weeks!
