My First Post :)

This is so exciting! I've always wanted to have a blog. :) If you were wondering why I decided to call my blog Friends on Sunday, its actually a name me and my friend thought make a cool band name. But I liked it so much I wanted to use it.

I decided to start a blog of things that Inspire me. I wanted to start with what inspired me to start this blog. Back In January my brother, Blake, and I were watching MTV and a commercial came on for a new show called The Buried Life. It looked pretty good, so when it aired we both watched it. The show is about 4 guys, Ben, Dave, Jonnie, and Duncan, who are trying to complete a list of "100 things to do before you die." and for every one they check off their list they help a stranger complete something on theirs. The show is witty, entertaining, and inspirational. I suggest everyone check it out if you have time.

Since I'm away at college and Blake's back home, after ever episode we would call each other and talk about what they did. After about 4 episodes we both decided we should start our own list and together we would help each other complete things. So far I have competed 5 things off my own list: Hopscotch across the Golden Gate Bridge, donate blood, finish the zoo, donate my hair and start a blog. I probably won't have done any of these things if I hadn't made the list. I have 81 things on my list right now, so I have a ton of things left to cross off. I will leave you with this:
"It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only one we had."
