I wanted to put this out into the universe as I was always told somewhere, someone will catch the dream and make it come true (besides the fact that I’m on a mission and I’m making it a reality for myself)!
(excerpt from an email to a friend…)
“…I decided that next year i’m going to spend at least 2 weeks traveling around europe and the year after, I’m going to spend at least 2 weeks traveling around south america…
the year after, I’m going to australia, and the following year, I’m going the fuck to india.
also, i’ve given myself a deadline to start applying to these grad programs (have to finish the apps by next month…)
this is good, i like pushing myself to do things because i’m tired of this static shit. also, 23 (my birthday is in less than 2 weeks) is going to be great, and i need to remember that and start working towards it.
i’m also gonna make myself work out 4x a week. yes. progress. slow and steady but all attainable goals.”
sometimes I wonder if I should just go teach 1st or 2nd grade, just so I can go back to reading all of those nice little cozy stories that have morals and great happy endings.
