I never quite got around to choosing a word for this year, but badass seems to be popping up over and over again. First, it was archery. Now, it’s motorcycles.

Before the temperatures in DC dipped down last week, a friend from high school took me out for my first motorcycle ride on his new bike. And it was epically awesome. I want one now.

And I’m signing up for a class so I can learn to ride and get my license. There’s just nothing like speed.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve done lately?

    I know it doesn’t sound wild like a bike ride but I have to say many events of the conference were pretty wild… Especially the amount of money I put down to be able to go (a lot!!!). Now I’m planning my next trip and hope I can see you when I take it… Cheers my friend!

    I love that you picked badass. Such a great word. I really debated choosing rock (as in the verb version) for my word this year. I can’t wait to read more about your adventures (on and off the bike!)
