I feel like this blog is not going in the correct direction. With being at school and having little free time to dedicate this, I have been overly selective with the missions I complete, choosing them for ease rather than the outcome. When I started this, I viewed it as a way to connect with the world, to bring unsuspecting people together, to make people notice things they normally wouldn't, to do different things.
I have completely failed at the majority of those goals lately. There is one mission that was posted early in the year that will require a huge chunk of time and planning, but it is the one I want to do the most. I have to be in Jacksonville to pull this one off, and with a month-long winter break ahead of me, I feel like I can accomplish it.
In the mean time, bear with me. In the next month hopefully I can do some of the more difficult ones that I have set aside in a folder on my desktop with the screaming title "REALLY WANT TO DO."
I hope I can pull this next one off, but there is a good chance that it will be a bust. Keep your fingers crossed.
I now wake up, think of everything that is possible in my life and in the world. I turn over, and I see the sky.
Allison and I are thinking about covering our entire ceiling in images of the sky since we are enjoying this one little bit of it. David took a photo of the sky everyday in 2008. They can be seen here: http://davidhorvitz.com/2008_sky.html
I am sick of waiting for exams to be over. I am sick of waiting for people to get over silly grudges. I am sick of waiting for an idea. I am sick of waiting for free time to come back. I am sick of waiting for so many things.
I was not a happy camper during this. My roommate thought I was crazy when I asked her to take a picture. "Hey, can you take a picture of me after I randomly cover my face in shaving cream, and cite a blog for the reason I am doing it?" She was perplexed. All the while my other roommate, Allison (who just started LettersFromAroundTheWorld.tumblr.com) laughed because she knew exactly what I was doing and why. But she didn't help. Thanks Allison. Thanks. It all got in my eyes and it stung horribly. Needless to say, washing my face has never felt more relieving than it did after this was done.
If you are viewing this blog well after the first post, you will be lost. Every few days throughout 2009, David Horvitz posts a task of some kind on his blog for his readers to complete. I am attempting to complete as many of them as I can. They range from simple things, such as mailing an empty envelope, to far more challenging and almost impossible tasks such as turning off all of the lights at a major intersection.
The link to this blog can be found in many random places, such as on dollar bills, post its on light posts, fliers stuck to your car, written on walls. If you have come across this blog from any place aside from StumbleUpon, let me know. Email, twitter, comment. Thumbs up.
