Very cool! But, the first photo is kind of creepy- she's standing like the little girl in The Ring.

Hey Anna! Keep up the good vibes and stay safe! I'm so glad to hear other people are having successful solo trips (and taking gorgeous photos along the way). In October and November I took a month long trek across the country by myself. Started in Chicago, up north to Seattle then down the coast to Southern California and back home via Route 66. It was unbelievable. Here's my travel blog from the trip: kaitlynherzog.wix.com/wildwest Good luck! K

i am an architect, a calligrapher, and pretty recently became a yoga teacher. I began teaching and when the end of the month came and i realized I had been paid for doing what I love the most was one of the most eye/heart opening experiences of my life. In that moment it finally made sense the “get a job doing what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” (I never believed it to be truth). So I dare to say it exists! its just a matter of time and never stop searching. :)

Reflecting on one helluva crazy year. Read More

Thank you for reflecting, Im usually not one to think back on the year because I just want to move on. But you make me realize how everything that occurred was completely unexpected! (I get caught up trying to figure out what to do next quite often.) And that's what made it beautiful. I even met and fell in love with my girlfriend at a music festival which was totally unexpected. Much love -Jeremy

We have the choice to start fresh with every new day, but an impending new year takes things up a notch.

One thing I've done in the past five or six years is to sit down with a cup of coffee and write down all the beautiful as well as the not that beautiful moments that I lived through in the past year. It is not about trying to capture everything that happened, but just to create a notion of how the last year was, the feelings that I had when going through it. I try to memorize as many different things as possible, to live through them again for a bit to then finally conclude with them and be open for a new year to come. This year, I also made a list of with each month of 2016, writing down one or two things that I will try to do in these months, sometimes it's just a small thing, sometimes it is a big travel plan I'm already looking forward to for ages and sometimes it is trying to create a new habit, like going swimming first thing in the morning in the lake near to my home. I won't be mad at myself, if, over time, I change those plans and goals, as I know that with life passing, these things can always change, and I also left a few months' goals empty as I still don't want to be too determined, but I am looking forward to the challenge and the small reminders of appreciating life and its little moments.

I agree with all of you so far, with one exception. I somewhat agree with Gilbert on the topic of arts education because of my own experience with it. I have a theatre degree, but what I learned at my university could've just as easily come from my own exploration. For example, my favorite piece I ever made was a play about my great-grandmother and great-grandfather's love story, and it was created completely outside of my curriculum. (I'm currently playing with the idea of a sequel.) Oddly enough, I'd never written a play before or since, but it's what I'm most confident with. I did it all on my own, in school or not, and I'm finding Gilbert's encouragement to go out on my own, be fearless, and be self-educated to be inspiring. I often think I've wasted the only higher education I'll ever be able to afford, but she's telling me I haven't because I can teach myself. I had a much harder time squaring away with the paradox of art being incredibly important and meaningful and also useless. That pill was a little harder for me to swallow in this chapter.

Blondes & Bagels, Audrey, and Liz -- on the one hand I appreciate that Gilbert gives credit to those who work day jobs that have nothing to do with their passions while pursuing what they care most about in the off-hours, i agree with you that Gilbert seems to enjoy stripping those who pursued an art education of any credit that may be due to them. I don't regret my choice to go to art school, I may not toil long hours in my studio anymore, but i believe the education I received there to be invaluable as well as the connections I made. This chapter was a difficult one for me to dissect and digest as well, especially after the positivity of the first three chapters.

I loved playing the chocolate game when I was a kid :D Looks like it's time to play it again. Thanks for the reminder. And it's amazing that you don't need anything special for the second game.
