I bought a canvas before the year started. I knew I wanted to painting my own painting to put up on the wall. The first idea I had was to paint a tiger. I love ferocious animals and recently tigers have become my favorite. But, while I was here I thought about it and realized how cool it could be if I combine my year of adventure with my painting. I plan to paint things from my most memorable adventures into an awesome acrylic collage.
My wanderings have begun and the year of adventure is in full swing. So far while in Hawaii I've gone out on a catamaran, asked a cute boy for his phone number, gone snorkeling, went out paddleboarding, and started lessons for scuba certification! I've also met some very interesting people by eating alone. I eat at the bar so I don't take a whole table to myself and apparently I'm pretty approchable because I've made some friends. While in Hawaii I've also met a cousin I didn't know I had and I've been able to hang out with one of my bestest friends a bunch!
Next week one of my friends is following my lead and coming out to Hawaii (Only for a week, but it's sure to be a good week!). Some adventures I'm hoping to go on while she's here are to head up to the north shore, check out the PCC (the Polynesian Cultural Center), get some shrimp from a shrimp truck and watch some surfers. Also, I want us to take a rainforest hike, jump into a swimming hole, maybe do some kayaking and check out the Chinese New Year events in Chinatown. It is the year of the Tiger and it's going to be a ferocious one!
