Ten Years!

i just realized it's been ten years since I was on Erebus. Ten years! I was just reading old entries, procrastinating on a paper due tomorrow, and it hit me. Ten years!

In 1992-93, I was in Spain as an exchange student.

In 2002-03, I was on Erebus, in Antarctica for the first time.

Now, ten years later, in 2012-13, I'm.... staying home for Christmas, for the first time ever. Not going to Seattle. Not going to New York. Not in Spain, not in Antarctica. I didn't feel lame until now, but now... Sheesh, if I realized it was my big year to do something--xxx2-x3--maybe I would have actually found an adventure. The next thing. Quite frankly, I'm a little disappointed in myself.

Twenty years since Spain. Ten years since Erebus. Wow. Time doesn't stop for anything, does it? Perhaps there's still time to sneak onto some semi-ridiculous adventure for the new year. At the very least, I can keep reading blog entries and thinking "Holy cow--that was ten years ago."

Warm thoughts to everyone near and far, regardless of what adventures you are embarking on.
