I am going to be honest (bitter!) - I live a difficult life and sometimes I feel like a hamster stuck in a wheel that wouldn't stop. That is what doing chores, running errands, and managing a home rentals business feels like. This hamster wheel phenomenon began a few years ago. It combined with my grad school life and presented itself as a vicious monster aiming to eat my happiness.
There was suddenly a Eureka moment (can't point to when exactly!) and I decided to find adventure in whatever it is that I was juggling with. If you make friends with it, it won't kill you (happened in Jurassic World! Ending scenes!).
So I set out to depict myself as the female lead in my thriller movie. My daily routine and challenges worked out as if life was on repeat-play mode and the record kept looping. Everything had started to feel like noise to me. So I decided to change my perspective a bit. After all, when Bilbo thought about it he could see the adventure!
I started out by sharing my landlady life and its troubles (roach infestation! fallen trees! clogged Johns!) in a comical way on social media. I ranted about grad school and MBA studies (honor roll! GPA obsession!). And, I started taking crazy photos and recording videos on my chores and errands trips to markets. I also started scooping out humor in the skeleton's pelvic floor models at pain management offices! Sharing on social media gave me a satisfying high, doing things like making movies and taking photos made me push new boundaries, and blogging about it in a comical way killed boredom (a lot of it). At the end of the day I prevented extreme burnout and going insane!
Finding humorous adventure in something nasty works like casting a Riddikulus spell on a Boggart and dumbfounding it with laughter!
So you get the picture? I have posted quite a few (animated ones!). My idea of an adventure does not involve jumping from an airplane, a bungee cord, or diving down to walk the ocean floor. I can be found enjoying an adventure in photographing a live lobster at Giant food stores lobster tank, dressing up Gryffindor at The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter, or putting together a seasonal crafts decor in my study! Nevertheless, the adventures must not cease!
