10 Years Later

There are many reasons I would not go back to being 22 years old. As amazing as that time of my life was it was also rough. I had just graduated from college, and was at one of the biggest points of my life, and well life was challenging and confusing. So ten years has elapsed and I need a new passport. The photo does not hugely bother me because it's more weird then anything else. I mean I look like a chubster ghost alien. 

I was pretty pleased to see even though I am not a fresh faced 22 year old who has all sorts of life ahead of them I look better. I am recognizable as a human being which was a step in the right direction, and while my skin might have a few pores, my face has less chins. I will take the trade. 

Why do I need a new passport you ask, well you didn't but for the sake of moving this along I am going to tell you. I'm thoughtful like that. I am off to Costa Rica in 10 days! I could burst I am so excited. There's going to be monkeys, volcanoes, surfing, yoga, and we're driving some (by we I mean Juice) so adventures have to abound. 

I might be tired and sweaty but at least look alive versus 10 years ago. 


  1. Wow - that is one great new passport photo. And what a comparison, you look like (and are) a completely different person.

    In my 22 year old passport photo, I had a space-age pink bob. That made life really interesting at customs once I dyed my hair back to brown!

    Bon vacances:) It sounds like an amazing trip, especially the monkeys.

  2. I love it, a space age pink bob. Amazing.

  3. I am envious of you i have been fighting my food addiction for 30 years. I have had 2 heart attacks and still cant get a handle on my eating, at least when i was 22 my heart was stronger

  4. Still Suffering - Ugh, it's rough and lord knows I know the struggle. It's always with me I just learn better and better how to manage it. Don't lose hope, there's no magic bullet you'll find the lifestyle that works for you and not against you. It's out there.
