I think it’s true – life is fleeting. Everything we do in life is a choice. We wake up every morning (sometimes on time) and stumble and meander through the day until we’re back in our beds. Before we know it, we chose to let our life to pass us by. And how awful is that?
The truth is that I am not working as hard as I am now to land myself a full-time job, and to live five blocks down from my parents house. That seems to be everyone else’s dream, though! People want a teaching job in a good suburban school district… and yes, I want to work, but there’s got to be something more to life…. right?
This thought kind of hit me… I was listening to my boyfriend tell my mom, “I’d love to live out in California!” Her response? –> “Everywhere you go is the same. You get a job. You have laundry to do, dishes to do, errands to run. Ohio is just as good as California.”
And I realized that this wanderlust I feel is not something that everyone feels. I find myself needing more. Sure, whenever we see someone on our Facebooks or Instagrams ~ backpacking somewhere~ a flood of envious comments spew. But how many people truly do it? How many people get OUT and see what else is out there?
My point is: Don’t just SAY it….DO it.
I graduate in 8 months. I’m looking for independence, and freedom. Most importantly, I’m ready to meet some new people, try new food, learn a new language, and live carefree. My life has been so serious. Four straight years of getting a 4.0 in college, working 30+ hours a week and trying my hardest… I’m so ready.
I bought a camera, and I plan to capture everything.
