Rambling on this Thursday of mine...


I've been kind of "off" this week.
And maybe it's because of "that time of the month,"
but something just feels different and I'm not quite sure why.
So excuse me while I ramble a bit.

It's not as though I have anything to complain about,
because Zeus knows I have so much to be thankful for, I really do.
But I'm sitting here and I just have a feeling that this isn't where I want to be.

I'm going to be 26 in a few short months.
That's not old by any means, but it's an age where, more than ever,
I've been asking myself what I want to do with my life.
I've done the "climb the corporate ladder" thing since I was 18,
but I could never stay at a company for more than two years because I got bored
and always felt like there was something more out there for me.
I try to think about what I'm "good" at or what makes me happy,
but then I'm left with a blank canvas and I'm not quite sure what to put on it.

My mind keeps going back to travelling.
That's what I want.
Leave my job, grab what little things I have, and go see the world.
I want to do it now, not when I'm 65 and retired, because 
A) who knows if I'll even be alive at 65
B) I'd much rather have my youth and energy when doing such things like seeing the world and
C) the mere thought of working in an office for the next 40 years of my life is severely depressing to me.
So I keep asking myself, "Why not?"
What's holding me back from doing what I would love to do?
I read all of these blogs about (young) people who are doing it.
And instead of sitting here, at my desk everyday, reading about it,
shouldn't I be doing it as well?

I want this to by my map one day.

Wouldn't that be nice?
Yeah, I think so too.
I want the simple life.
You know...
V-Dizz in one hand, a latte in the other and a new place to see around every corner.
{P.S. I've never had a latte in my life, but it sounds like it could be nice.}

Anyway, that's all I've got.
Any suggestions on how to make that happen?


xoxo

  1. I totally know what you mean! I haven't really been out of America (since I've only been to Mexico and Canada and those don't count, especially when you barely remember because you were so young) so I want to get out and see the world! I keep telling myself that I need to get my passport, and I haven't yet! I'm gonna do it this year, I swear. Hold me to that, k?

  3. First let me just day that I love this Post because I totally and completely feel the same way! I know I am here for a reason and I know that there has to be something that I should be great and passionate about that is my “calling" yet makes me sad to not know what it is.

    I have always, always wanted to travel. Rome, Paris, London, Machu Picchu, Dublin, Even Hawaii. Anywhere. But how? How can I just pick up and go? Can someone just spouncer me so I can travel the world? Should I not buy anything save all my money and just go?! I have thought of it & want to. All before I settle down. Then I need someone to go with me that doesn’t fear is adventures and can navigate threw the unknown because I kinda suck at that! Also google translator may be nice.

    Love this post! You are one of my fav blogger because I feel like you just hit home to me and can relate soo much. Sorry if I'm getting to Mushy for yeah :)

    Just know you are not alone on this! ☺

  5. I'm so envious of people who up and follow their dreams. I've never been that person. I do what is expected, what's safe. I've never had the guts to take a leap of faith. I wish I could be more like that though!

  6. You should read the book "4 Hour Work Week." It will help reinforce the idea of getting out of the rat race, and taking lots of "mini retirements" throughout life, rather than waiting until you're old & officially retired.

  7. Since you are so close to having a bachelor's degree, you could go to Korea and teach English and on your breaks (every two months) go traveling in that part of the country. You could make a difference, make money, and travel the world all at once :)

  8. I am soooo right there with you. Right now my goal is to get my blog running smoothly with sponsors and getting paid enough to work from home [with a nice little Etsy shop and all]! :) Travel the world and blog about it. <3
    Xoxo, Sarah

  9. My thoughts exactly about traveling now VS when I'm old! I also don't see the point in having a lot of money when I'm old, because if it were up to me I wouldn't live past 70!

  10. So not only do we have the best name ever... we are practically the same. I am 26 going on 27 and hating being couped up in an office 8 hours a day. It's honestly the only thing that gets me down and has for the past few years. I'm a gypsy at heart. One day.... one day....
