kingbird973's Profile:

I'm 22 years old and I live in New York State. I have graduated college, majoring in History and minoring in Outdoor Education, but I have absolutely no idea where I'm going in life.

After college I joined a program called Americorps NCCC which allowed me to travel around the United States. As a part of the program I lived in Denver and Selma, Alabama doing non-profit work. This experience really opened my eyes. In Denver I saw a lot of natural beauty, in Alabama I saw a lot of the evils of humanity. Through a lot of new experiences and some inner reflection I became more conscious of my place on this earth and in this society.

I'm a very relaxed, easy going kind of person, and despite my lack of direction I'm very ambitious. I have a lot of ideas and goals, things I want to do and places I want to see, but I guess I'm just not sure how to transition from college into the real world. I'm having trouble focusing my energies. I don't want to label myself, but I guess you could say I fit in with a lot of different crowds. Some say I'm a little bit of a hippie, some say I'm your typical sports fanatic, but most everyone says that I'm genuinely a good person, and that's a great thing for me to hear. My greatest goal is to affect other peoples lives in a positive way every single day, doing whatever little things I can or just by being myself.




Begin reading a novel and actually finish it
Particularly "The Journals of Lewis and Clark" - I started it 3 years ago and am not even halfway through it.

Climb Mt. Marcy of the Adirondacks no later than April 1st, 2009
I've climbed quite a few Adirondack peaks, but Mt. Marcy is the tallest peak in the range at 5344 ft., and climbing it in the winter would be quite a task.
