|The Dangers of Stress: A Parable |
Posted: Jul 20, 2006 - 10:40pm
Once upon a time, there was a nondescript village full of ordinary, nondescript people. The villagers' mission in life was to be safe, healthy, and happy. One day, some vague, nondescript annoying thing began to happen in the village. It happened each day for a long time to most of the people in the village. Some took it as a matter of course. Some fought to eliminate the annoying thing. Some were not affected by it. It created great dissension amongst the villagers, their families, and their legal consultants. Eventually, some of the villagers became so stressed by the annoying thing that they developed ulcers, were hospitalized, and soon dies horrible deaths thereafter. The End.
Moral: Oh, please.

When i graduate high school, I plan on leaving Utah and traveling to the east coast. I don't know how long my trip will last, and I don't know exactly where I am going to go. There will be danger and excitement, probably more than one night of sleeping in a field under the open sky, and no limit to the misery of aching muscles and people bothering me. I am up to the challenge, and I am looking forward to it. This jornal entry is my first step in planning that journey.
My question to all of you is this: where should I go? I know where I want to end up, but what, in your opinion, are some good places to visit along my way? Cool cities, good places to eat, clean bathrooms, whatever.
