I've come across this video on other blogs a number of times over the past couple of weeks. I figured I'd post it here as well. I find it very inspiring, especially since I can be a bit of a wuss when it comes to doing things alone. I've also been in a relationship for almost 8 years, so I've gotten used to always having someone to do things with. I'm ok at being a hermit, but I'm sorta self conscious/shy, and that can impede my enjoyment of doing things by myself that I'd normally do with friends. Ah well. Practice makes perfect.
On another unrelated note, this morning I woke up (repeatedly) to Sookie meowing at me and gently poking me in the nose with her little paw. I kept flipping over and ignoring her, but she was persistent and I'm sure she nudged me at least 10 times, right on the nose everytime. In the end I eventually gave in and we played fetch. Silly kitty. I'm so glad we got her.
