We're Going On An Adventure

Adventure to me can be as simple as going to the grocery store. It can be as wild as flying to another continent with just my sister.

Adventure is going to see movie previews, or foreign films I'm sure I'll hate. Adventure is trips to IKEA and redoing my bedroom. Adventure is a dance show, or starting a new TV show.

Some of my favorite adventures include my YMCA group. We called ourselves the Chatterboxes, and we certainly lived up to the name. We'd spend weekends at campgrounds, making up games, climbing rockwalls and learning how to do archery. Once, my friend and I fell into a lake. In February. Another time, I was the only one of my group who was able to get to the meetup, and I got placed with another cabin. We had a blast, even though I wasn't part of their group.

One of my more recent adventures was attending my local comic con. I went with four of my friends, all of us cosplaying. It was amazing, fantastic, brilliant, and definitely an adventure.

Adventures can be creating new things, be it hats or manatees or attempting to draw. Adventure is trying to find a book sale, and arguing over directions with your dad. Adventure is trying your hair a new style, and going out to the grocery store, or the movies, or to school with it that way.

Often times, my mom and I will be in the car, headed to the grocery store, or the mall, and I'll proclaim, "We're going on an adventure!"

And we are. It's not necessarily big and grand and exciting, but every little moment is an adventure.

Or at least, that's how I see it.
