Dear Mr. Vernon

Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that it’s been thirty years since we were held captive in the library for an entire day and you asked us to write an essay telling you who we think we are. 

Thirty years ago you saw us as you wanted to see us, in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we’ve learned in the last thirty years is that we are so much more than just brains, athletes, basket cases, princesses, and criminals. We’ve learned that, when you get past the clothes and the cliques, we all have our challenges and have more in common than meets the eye.

We were never sure if our essay answered your question and, quite frankly, we don’t care. Because we’ve also learned in last three decades that there will always be ignorant jerks like you.

Sincerely yours,

Shane and a few million members of Generation X 

P.s., We don’t want to know if you still raid Barry Manilow’s wardrobe.

Golden Coast
Let’s hop in this old car and feel the steady pull of the blue highway as it leads us to the where the sun shines golden, where dreamers still dream, and the mighty Pacific calls to everyone that’s still listening

Why Not? - Motivation & 5 to 9 Thinking

"The only worse than going off, failing, and looking like an idiot, was for me not to do it and to get old and look back at my life and really regret not having a go at something like this.” ~ Alastair Humphreys

The things we do because we love them are so much more than just games to play. They’re marvelous elixirs that shape our bodies, minds and hearts, that transform who we are and who we are becoming.

I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.
