My last post I created a list of things I want to do. I have checked one of the list. I was in Boston for the weekend. I had to travel via air for the first time alone. I will admit I was really nervous about about traveling alone. I didn’t have anyone to support me. I had to do it all on my own. Being independant was always something I was proud of. I don’t have the same sense of self-reliance. The good news is that I made it. The thing I noticed is that confidence is sometimes short lived. I have times of feeling a little bit more confident, but it doesn’t always last. My fear of what life will have to offer seeps back into my mind. It is a tough thing because you want to be strong for the people around you and I struggle to be that. I just want the confidence I had before…it felt good.

The one thing I noticed in Boston is that my view of the world is really different. I spend all my time looking up, as before I spent all my time looking down. I see the world from a brand new prespective. My car door is at eye view. My door knob is at eye view. The whole world has gone from one foot below me to one foot above me. It is just such a odd feeling.

Boston was a good time. I have a cousin, and a buddy there. I did not see all the sites but, I saw the good ones. We went to the graves of Ben Franklin, Sam Adams, and Paul Revere. I snapped pictures in front of Cheers. We went to the Sam Adams Brewery. I took a Duck tour, it is hard to explain but I got a great tour of the city. Plus, Dunkin Donuts. There are rougly 100 Dunkin Donuts in Boston. See pictures below.

I know I have not written much in the last couple of weeks, but I promise I will regain my daily updates again.

    Keep checking things off your list, and keep adding new ones, too.
    Cheers to you, Joel!
