Looking back, I see how this experiment taught me that average doesn’t have to be boring. But I still find myself thinking that it’s sad that the word average exists. Average life for some is so varied, exciting and eclectic that the “other” category can range from skydiving to writing a novel to redecorating a dorm room. The humdrum of everyday life should sound like a really good adventure movie — suspenseful, stimulating and exhilarating. Some things are bound to be routine like grooming, driving and, of course, sleeping. But it’s what you do with what’s left of your time that determines whether your life is average or amazing.
