Trying New Things (#148)

The old me would have stayed in my room and watched movies till my back hurt from laying down.

What I ended up doing today was far more fun. I walked around, I asked questions, I even stayed out past dark. Because my phone doesn’t connect to the Internet I have no map or direction other than what I remember for landmarks. Getting home felt like a sense of accomplishment to top off a really great day.

It only makes me more excited to share this with people when they visit this summer.
