March 17th 2011 was alittle heartbreaking. I worked from 7:00am to 12:00pm, then caught a ride to the riverline by one of my co-workers, took the riverline to the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden,NJ to catch the 408 bus to Philadelphia 6th street and vine, then took the broadstreet Substation all the way to the AT&T Sports Complex, then went to the Wells Fargo Center to watch the NCAA Division l College Wrestling National Championship. I entered the arena and went to the ticket booth. There this guy with a Blue USA Wrestling sweat suit on with his son in front of me. I was getting kind of irritated because this guy was holding everyone up. The ticket guy saw that I was irritated, and asked me "are you here for the wrestling?" I answered "yes." then he told me that the tickets were all sold out. Yes I was devistated, but I took this as an oppurtunity to hang out and sight-see.
I told one of my friends about what happened. He bursted out laughing and told me that the tickets were sold-out three hours after they went on sale six weeks before the event. I wished I've known sooner. I did not think the tickets would be sold out that fast. The good news is I've gotten a valuable lesson out of this experience. I've learned to improvise, overcome, adapt. In this fast changing world, it's essential that we remain flexible because unfortunantly plans do change. Things don't always turn out the way we expect them to turn out. It's just a matter of finding value in something else that may be much better than what we originally planned. Improvise, overcome, and adapt. Clint Eastwood told you that in his movie entitled Heartbreak Ridge.
Well. That is all I have for today. Thank you for reading these powerful words.
