I’ve been panicking about not completing my “Before I Turn 18” list in time, my 18th birthday is today, when I realized something, when I made the list it was only things I could do before I turned 18, not things that I had to do before then. I didn’t want to have to wait until I was an adult to begin my list, I was afraid that I’d lose my enthusiasm about it, so I broke them into smaller bits so I could start right away.
Working towards my goals, I am currently learning Italian (still), and I am working at a climbing park near where I live! Getting over my fear of heights is an important step to a lot of my goals, including sky diving, climbing the Seven Summits, and BASE jumping, among other things.
Another exciting thing, I recently acquired a Canon Powershot G5 for free, all I had to buy was an extra battery, and a charger. It’s an older camera, but it takes decent pictures, and it’s a good “training camera” so when/if I get a better one I’ll be more familiar with how to use it. I realized today that I don’t actually have a way to get my pictures onto my laptop though… That, however, is a problem for another day! Like, when all my memory cards are full.
