My 7 Links: The Best of the Journey | Backpackingmatt: Life's a Journey - A Budget Travel Blog ….oh, hey there! Sorry, I’m a bit late to the party. Things have been slightly crazy down here in Queenstown. Sometimes I forget that while I’m tucked away on the bottom of New Zealand’s South Island on the bottom of the world enjoying the start of winter, chances are it’s pretty warm where you are. Not in Queenstown. See that. Sun Rising Over the Wakatipu Basin That was my view early Sunday morning as I was heading up Coronet Peak – one of the ski hills just outside of Queenstown. And then, as I was taking the first lift of the morning, the clouds parted and revealed a beautiful sunrise and a Wakatipu Basin covered with a blanket of white snow. The White Gold has arrived in Queenstown. The My 7 Links Party… So, I’m quite excited to dig through the archives and present to you – My 7 Links.

Why Your Twenties are Terrible/Awesome Or: Gah I’m turning 27 on Wednesday! When I was twenty-one years old my mother told me that her twenties were the hardest decade of her life. This kind of puzzled me at the time. Me at 21 Now at nearly twenty-seven (my birthday is tomorrow-aack) I’m a bit more circumspect. Our twenties is when most of us make the major life decisions that are going to affect the rest of our years: what kind of person will you be? In a way, this is what makes leading a typical, traditional lifestyle so appealing. For some people though, the typical American lifestyle just doesn’t cut it. It’s not a better choice, or a worse one, but either way it’s pretty scary to be in your twenties and trying to be the architect of your destiny. I also remind myself that nobody else has it figured out either. That’s the thing right?

I received an email a few months back from a NF reader that made me smile: “I am going back to square one. I noticed the only habit that I changed and stuck with was drinking tons of water. Have you ever started playing a game and get a few hours in and go “man I wish I knew these controls/tips from the beginning”? So you restart and the game just feels easier from that point on. You start finding items that you missed before. I’m restarting my journey now that I have a better idea of the controls.” This resonated with me, because when I first played EverQuest (similar to World of Warcraft), the first character I created was terrible. When I started again playing as a new character, I FLEW through the first 30 levels: I understood the controls, how the game worked, and what needed to get done; it was much easier the second time through! The same is true for any boss battle you first encounter in any game. Getting in shape is no different.
