To see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to, to draw closer, to see and be amazed.
The Life Magazine motto in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is inspirational. And it happened as part of my first-time experience at a drive-in movie theatre. Chairs that can fully recline and you can control the volume on the radio! (No, seriously, why is this not a thing anymore?)
2013 was more like the awkward and shy phase of getting to know the city. Does it like me? Does it like me not?
In this new year, I plan to explore more of San Francisco and California. Take an online course and learn to code. Focus on my career. Try more new restaurants. Blog more. Train for a marathon. (but really) Run a 10k. Volunteer more. Snap Reunion 2014. Vandy Girls Reunion 2014. Travel to a different country. Have more first-time experiences. Make good life choices. Dream big.
So far? 2014 is off to a great start.
