Flicking through my feeds this morning, I discovered (via skipp.net) that today is International Day of Awesomeness. Looking through Scott's list of things that are awesome, I realised I too have a bunch of things and people in my life that I think are awesome and/or regularly perform feats of awesomeness. While this realisation seems pretty obvious in retrospect, it's one of those things that just needs pointing out before you take the time to think about it.
Reading a little further, I discover that the day is at least partly inspired by The Show with Ze Frank, probably the most awesome vodcast ever. This post is obviously not that awesome, and I haven't performed any feats of awesomeness in posting it (or at all today, in fact), so to remedy that situation at least a little bit, I'll end it with a list of things I think are awesome. This list is not exhaustive.
- music (especially modern sea shanties)
- summer storms
- Merlo coffee
- classical sculpture
- lazy friend filled days
Don't be afraid, embrace your awesomeness, even if you think it's kind of stupid.
