I like sitting at home

I have a small apartment.  No couch, two chairs, a computer desk, and a bed.  A pretty bare place, but I like to stay home.  I don’t even have a TV.  What do I do when I am home?  I sit at the computer, edit videos, post videos, use social media to let people know about the videos, then, I go down the social media black hole. 

Of course, I also watch Netflix and Amazon Prime.  I am pretty normal in most aspects.  I have been known to not leave my apartment for days.  That is NOT good for me, or anyone else!!

I love getting out

When I do get out, I sometimes really have to force myself to leave the apartment.  It is a little sad, because I REALLY enjoy getting out and seeing new things, talking to people, and generally being outside in nature.  I struggle sometimes with making myself go out.  For instance, I am making myself meet Neal at Pequod’s for lunch today.  I will probably drive Uber after that.

When I go out, all I want to do is explore.  See things I haven’t seen before.  A couple of days ago, we went to Wicker Park, and walked around.  I have been in and around Wicker Park many times.  But, I have not really walked around.  Seen the different places.  From Reckless Records, to Big Star, I got to experience new places.  I even found out that there is one of those escape places you can go to.  They were closed when we showed up, but that is something I would like to do someday.

We also went to The Emporium, I have been there before, too, but I was working, and not able to have any fun.  I got to play some skeeball, and pinball!!  I wish I had more time to stay there, it has been a pretty crazy busy week.


I need to explore more.  I need to force myself out of the apartment more.  That will be hard, since it is getting cold.  

I will be escaping the cold in January, and heading to Thailand.  I hope to have many more exploring videos of many places in Thailand.  I will mostly be staying in one general area, but there will be some short day trips.

Where do you like to explore?  What types of places to you like to go?  Do you have a favorite?  Where is the one place you have always wanted to go, but haven’t?

It all starts with getting out of the house.  Getting out of your comfort zone, and most importantly, GETTING OUT.  Just Explore It!  Explore your world, your neighborhood, your town, your state, your province, your country, and more.  You just have to take that first step.  

What are you waiting for?
