What Makes Me Happy:
Enjoying a day outside with best friends. Catching up with girlfriends at Brunch on Sundays sharing weekend recaps (over bloody marys and mimosas of course). A hug from my mom. A phone date with a faraway friend. My dad’s pancakes when I’m visiting home. Airports because I’m going on an adventure. Dog parks. Swimming in the ocean and salt drying on my skin. Fireworks. Live music outside in the Summer.
My Dream Travel Destination:
When you have a heartfelt and long goodbye with someone, you leave and then realize you forgot something, so you have that awkward goodbye all over again.
Ten years from now and feeling like I have regrets. I think about that a lot and it's why I often take risks and do things and don’t consider the consequeneces. Although irresponsible, I would rather live this way than play it safe. Other fears include: sea creatures in the ocean or walking around the ocean floor when you can’t see bottom (I swear, something is going to eat me), staring contests with cats, and non-enclosed heights.
I’m a huge IndieRock fan. My favorite bands include Guster, Ben Folds, Band of Horses, Arctic Monkeys, Best Coast, Birds and the Bees, The Decemberists and The Black Keys. I LOVE making friends mixes and sharing the love of a good band. And, oddly, I have a thing for folk or celtic music - The fiddle is my favorite instrument.
Ten Years From Now:
A few years ago, I would have told you married with children. Ideally, yes, I would like for those things to happen, but I think I’m OK if they don’t. I would like own my own home, have something published - be it a short story or novel, and ultimately, be comfortable with where I am at in my life and in my own skin.
I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend.
