Moonlight Beach.

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving, safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, wine in one hand, chocolate in the other, body totally used up, totally worn out, screaming 'Woo Hoo! What a ride!'"

This is the difference I feel to the life in Colorado, and my life in Australia.  It is wonderful feeling, knowing that my friends understand this, now.  Our lives back home are routine, mundane and planned out for us with one purpose: to get money. Our lives in Australia have a much deeper purpose and everyday is an adventure full of new friends, boys, jokes, food, and memories.  We meet all sorts of crazy people along the way and laugh the majority of the time.   Life is supposed to be about finding joy and loving life, not devoting your life to routine.  I love this quote, as it reminds us how life should be and is for us at this moment in Australia.
