No weekend photo diary this weekend--I just had too many errands to run, so I'm making it up with an outfit post! I'm hopelessly in love with brick walls. I just find them so timelessly charming. You can see that this one's painted, which just might be what I have to resort to in my future beach home. I would say that's the only bad thing about living on the west coast--not too many historical/brick/old buildings. I've always wanted to drive along the east coast and visit all the historical places of the colonial times--maybe when gas prices drop back to reasonable prices sometime. I've caught a bad case of the wanderlust bug.
While I am pretty content with where I am in life, no one got anywhere in life by just being content and ignoring that nagging feeling that she should and could be better. I really do love it here in Southern California, I mean who wouldn't? It's the poster place to live, and I am so ever grateful to have spent the majority of my life here, but I am so ready to spread my own wings, travel, see the world, and find where I belong. If here is where I belong then great, but I want to know that it's because I've tried elsewhere not just because I grew up here. Normally I don't spend hours on Facebook stalking people, but last night, I "caught up" on some of my friends' lives by looking through their photos and reading their blogs--and some of them are in different countries and really living their lives. I was pretty satisfied that I found an everyday job right after I graduated and in the field I wanted, but I've been stuck in this M-F rut and I need, no want, to get out it. I don't want to wake up at 50 and realize I never went back to grad school or chased after my dreams. So it's time to dust off my books and really prepare for my grad school apps this Fall. Worrying about what I wear in the mornings and buying new clothes just doesn't seem as important anymore. Even though now it seems I have to juggle one more thing, my bank account is probably jumping for joy that I've found a new...hobby.
Until next post,
