This week, I’m in Daytona Florida for Bike Week. It’s basically a week-long meet up for bikers to be bikers, and spring breakers to be… spring breakers.
Essentially, a giant, week long party.
I’m not a big party guy (and don’t have a motorcycle), so I found myself asking “why am I here?” Especially when a lot of my buddies are at SxSW in Austin, and how much I’d love to be there.
But I came to the realization that this is something new. It’s different and a little out of my comfort zone even. How does a web (and my friend, a graphics designer) geek from New Jersey fit into something like this?
The truth is, you don’t have to fit in. You just have to have a good time, and realize that getting out of that comfort zone and doing things you don’t normally do is life at its finest.
Whether it’s surrounding yourself with bikers, or doing something that is even a little out of the ordinary— it doesn’t hurt to try new things.
