Living with Abandon

“Just remember, the same as a spectacular Vogue magazine, remember that no matter how close you follow the jumps: Continued on page whatever. No matter how careful you are, there's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention..."
- Chuck Palahniuk

I don't ever want to feel that collapsed feeling. Am reminded today that my best memories, my happiest hours happened when I truly let go and lived with abandon. So in the spirit of abandon, here are some things I'm doing in the month of October.

Can you guess which thing on this list I am NOT doing?

A. Reporting for jury duty
B. Judging a beauty pageant
C. Performing a vaudeville piece
D. Taking a dance class
E. Driving into the mountains of Pennsylvania
F. Visiting my first haunted house

What about you? What new experiences are you having this month?

love, elizabeth

I would guess B) Judging a beauty pageant. I am searching for clothes for a soon to be 16-year-old neice. I've never done that before and just praying that the clothes fit and that she likes them. Not nearly as exciting as your list.

Reporting for jury duty. JUSTKIDDING! I think that's illegal. I'm going to go with haunted house. Because it can't be your first time to one! Or is it...

I'm deathly terrified of haunted houses. I went to a really big one in Connecticut with my residents when I was an RA, and I cried on the shoulder of one of my residents. Highly embarrassing.

I am going with performing the piece.
But I don't know, I probably am wrong. Hmm Pennsylvania sounds good. I really want to go somewhere i have never been before. That is my new thing this month (:

Is it the Haunted House? I've done that once and I hyperventilated and had to take one of the early exits - terrifying!

The things on my schedule this month don't feel "new" but I do have some things to look forward to. Like the pumpkin patch and a pumpkin carving party and a day trip to the Hill country. (o:

I am guessing the Vaudeville piece? I am going camping with a blogger friend for three days. Lots of hilarity in store!

Dance class. Love, Mama

I would say the beauty pageant, but maybe you're being tricky and doing all of them! ;)

What do I win for being the second person to guess correctly?
