30 Days Till 30— Daily Video Blog. Ep #5 & Ep #6: "Boracay cliff jumping and coffee confessions"
December 5, 2015
Danny and I were told we were taking a speed boat to go snorkeling, but the term speed boat must be used loosely around this island. The boat we are on is not exactly speedy.
These wooden boats are lanky and thin, with long noses that extend forward and arms that extend outward like a grasshopper's legs. The wooden stabilizers that parallel the hull look as if someone attached two giant, blue crayola pencils to each side. These awkward extensions were intended for safety and stability, or so I imagine that to be their purpose. To my foreign eyes, it just is , well...foreign.
But, I like the foreign so much. So much, it's crazy.

All I want is coffee. Well, maybe that's not all I want, but after a night out dancing, I can't think of much else but my headache and this mild hangover. I'm going kiting today— the entire reason I flew to the other side of the world— and oddly, I'm not stoked. I'm not even mildly excited. I'm pissed off mostly and one shouldn't be pissed off when in as beautiful of a location as Boracay. I'd like to say I can't help it, but that's a load of bullshit. I will never in my life be able to change another person's actions, but I will ALWAYS have control over my attitude. If I can learn that before I turn thirty, I'm one step closer to living the life of my dreams.
