“One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.”
— William Feather
Hey all! My name’s Jenna Pfingsten, and I am a sophomore at Drake University majoring in Magazine journalism, English, and Adventures*.
I feel like when most people see the word “adventure” they think of a cross-continental journey or jumping off of a cliff. While those things sound like marvelous adventures that I’d like to take someday, that’s not all that adventure is.
Adventure is everywhere. Almost anything can be classified as an adventure if you look at it the right way or approach it from a different perspective. Going out to dinner for the fourth time this week? Boring. Eating at a restaurant you would never try? Adventure! Other things like driving through a small farm town or taking a stroll through the park can be an adventure depending on what you make of it.
My goal is to help you see the little and big adventures you can take in your everyday life by giving you a look into how I turn my own life into an adventure. I’ll also offer helpful tips for you to bring little aspects of adventure into your own life.
So grab your backpack, open up your imagination, and let’s tackle the greatest adventure there is – life.
