|The Itch List...the Good, The Crazy & The Insane by JoeyDdamsel(f): 12:59am On Feb 01, 2018|
Hello guys, If you enjoyed my last posts. Kindly click on my link below and kindly subscribe. Thanks
"You See chaos theory isn't really about chaos, it's about how a tiny change in a system can affect everything"
I know what you are thinking. What is this 'Change'?
Before I get to that, I would like to take you through Emily's Adventures...
While most of us look forward to having a bottle of wine and watching our favourite soap opera after a long working week, Emily from El Paso Texas was preparing for her own Friday night escapade in Las Vegas. And you know how the saying goes:
'What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas'.
The 32 year old has spent the last years ticking off items from her bucket list. Hitherto she has dived out of a plane, gone hiking in an African jungle, auditioned for America got talent show and lived with a tribe for a week.
Emily always felt that life was too short to have a boring- marathon lifestyle so she decided to live life outside her comfort zone. She lost her aunt to breast cancer and one statement her aunt said that changed her mindset forever;
'She wished she lived more, Travelled to Paris with the one she loved but she would always regret the things she didn't have the courage to do but that Emily should not make her mistakes and always find time for a little adventure'
This statement made Emily consider what she was doing with her life and if she was happy, and she realised she wasn't.
She took a leave of absence from her job and bought a one-way ticket to the UK and spent the past months travelling around the world and pushing her boundaries. People thought she was crazy for doing something so spontaneous and she told them
'You only live once, so might as well make it the most of it'
One of the craziest thing she has ever done was to travel to Vegas with the intentions of marrying a complete stranger. She went to a male stripper club and met this Gorgeous Greek god who captured her attention with his moves and had the most amazing emerald eyes she had ever seen. She told him what she wanted to do, he laughed and said 'I like you so why not?'
So she found a chapel and and there were around 30 people there but he didn't show up. She was embarrassed and red faced, so she looked into the crowd and asked if anyone wanted to marry her and a random guy said 'Yes'. They had to go through the process of getting it annulled within 24 hours. It wasn't consummated either.
She would say most of the things on her list were realistic while some were just dip-shit-crazy but she wouldn't have it any other way. She still travels every weekend and ticks off an item from her list. After years of this amazing adventure she can proudly visit her aunt's grave and say
'she has finally scratched her itch'
'Life is all about taking chances and doing the unimaginable'
'One day you will wake up and there won't be any more time to do the things you've always wanted. Do it now'
