2girls1bus, that is. Except without the bus. You might be thinking, "what’s left to write about?" We had the same question. We’ve been trying to find a way to return to blogging since our cross country trip fell under last May, but it’s been rough (if by this point, you have no idea what we’re talking about, you can catch yourself up here).
we tried to buy another bus, to make another trip happen, but nothing
worked out and it just doesn’t feel right without Prudence. She was a
special lady. And we weren’t in the right place to go purchasing a bus
and running off. We’re in our late twenties now. Responsibilities
know, we know. That sounds like an insane, overly privileged, nonsense
thing to say. We are having a hard time swallowing it, too. But it’s
true. Life happened, and the two girls who were at a crossroads kind of
ended up choosing their paths. At least for now. Our careers are taking
off, and we’re not really in a transition period any longer. We’re happy
with where we’re at, but also realize we’re not getting any younger.
We hear so much talk about traveling when you’re young. About doing the things you can only do when you’re young while
you’re young (for the record, we think this mindset is bullshit - we
fully intend to have adventures for our entire lives). However, the
recent media attention on “getting it in” while you still can has got us
thinking. Let’s just do this thing. Now.
we created a “30 under 30” bucket list, starting on Bonnie’s 27th
birthday (August 1, 2012), for us to complete by Chelsea’s 30th
birthday on December 3, 2015. We have just forty months. To make, do,
see, learn, visit, build, uncover, create, experience.
imagine if we do this thing? How badass will that be? How amazing will
the next three and a half years be? I mean, you don’t even have an inkling because
you haven’t seen the list yet, but TRUST US; it’s going to be both badass and amazing! And we expect, pretty damn entertaining.
We’re ready. Are you?
