Another New Page

I have about half a dozen Adventure Report posts planned over the next two weeks. After asking for some feedback, I've decided that I would make a page to allow the reader to easily access all of these. That way, as I add more, it is easy to go back and look at previous ones. It will also serve as a sort of "goals achieved" page for myself. It may soon be accompanied by a general goals page again.

You can find the Adventure Report page here or in the bar at the top of the page.

Adventure Report: Flea Market

To help highlight the fact that just about anything can be an adventure if it is approached correctly, this adventure report is about going to a flea market. As I look at my previous Adventure Report, I'm realizing I can't really use the same format constantly. Adventures tend to vary in nature, and as such, the formats will be different, however, you can still find them by clicking on the Adventure Report tag.


Every Sunday, my town has a flea market. Now, in my experience, flea markets and antique malls were the exact same thing. Apparently, here, a flea market is basically a bunch of garage sales held at the same time in the same place. Some of the venders were more specialized and focuses than one would find at the average garage sale, and some even brought in produce, but overall, it was a glorified Saturday morning garage sale.

Exciting Life Series: Overview

 It's been a week since I sent out the original e-mails asking for participants in my Exciting Life Series. Since then, I've posted 6 total posts in the series, and I'm now wrapping it up. If anymore come in, I'll post them, but I'd like to move onto other post ideas. Overall, I was really happy with all the great people who helped out, and think their advice was right on.

The Posts:

  1. From a Friend
  2. Tyler Tervooren
  3. Ludvig Sunstrom
  4. Henry Olsen
  5. William Peregoy
  6. Chad Howse
If you have missed any in the series, I encourage you to go back and check them out. You may also find it helpful to just scroll through all of them and look at the headings to find some broad trends.

Exciting Life Series: Chad Howse

A lot of stuff online about being an "Alpha male" is BS catered to men who seek their confidence in their outward materialism. Chad's site Be Legendary is one of the quality ones. In fact, it's the only one I follow. Why? Because Chad cares about the entire man: mental, spiritual, and of course, physical. Chad is out to help us all be better, and in my opinion, he's doing it. He agreed to send me some tips in the spirit of this series.

Exciting Life Series: William Peregoy

 William is another blogger that I started following right when I began this blog. He has a blog that's pretty quiet now, but has some great stuff in the archives. If there is one article anywhere that I remember reading almost on a daily basis it is his article not apologizing.

His advice takes a different spin than the others in the series. He offers tips not only on leading an exciting life, but also living well.

Exciting Life Series: Henry Olsen

I've been following Henry's blog pretty much since I started this blog. Its a great place to just read about an interesting life. After a pretty long hiatus, he's back posting again, and he has just finished his second book. I figured that living in Taiwan was pretty exciting, and luckily Henry agreed to share his tips for leading an exciting life.

Exciting Life Series: Ludvig Sunstrom

Ludvig Sunstrom is the owner and author over at Startgainingmomentum, which has the wonderful subtitle of "Practical Self-Development." His advice reflects that. While he told me straight up that he isn't trying to promote himself as an expert in leading a "remarkably interesting life," his advice is well thought out. He gave me an incredibly complete answer, so I'm excited to share it.
