On the road again, the sweet tunes my dad always sings when we are on a road trip…or literally just driving from church to home. I find myself singing this little song a lot while driving around, especially when I am driving back and forth from Orange County to LA…so much driving. Soo when I saw this tee I knew that it was perfect for my life. I am always “on the road again.”
Tis the season for auditions, exams, baseball and track season for Brock and my brother Branden (I make it a mission to go to all of the games/races) and normal busy work days. This means my stress is a bit heightened and my time in the car is at an all time high. During school and work days I find myself rushing to auditions while on my lunch breaks and then scarfing down a meal in between. Since I am always “on the road” I have found ways to turn those wasted hours in to valuable learning hours. I have become a professional books on tape listener and podcast downloader…I am very proud of this new habit of mine! Usually during my morning drives I listen to my favorite podcast, Entreleadership, TED Talks or The Dave Ramsey Show; I learn sooo much during this time in my car. Listening to educational things while driving really truly makes the traffic a little easier to bare as I’m racing snails on the 405.
It’s time to take control of your time and learn a little something while you drive instead of listening to 2 songs in between what feels like an eternity of commercials. There are so many different podcasts you can download for free on your smartphone….literally every topic you could think of!! There are even really interesting suspenseful podcasts like Serial…a favorite of mine! Now whether you’re driving to work or going on a road trip…download a few podcasts that interest you and watch the time fly by. Wow, that felt like I was writing some cheesy, ad but I’m SERIOUS this has changed my life…I’m getting educated in all different areas for free while driving…it’s as magical as a unicorn.
