I have a love/hate relationship with my imagination.
i love it when I am bored and takes something like this:
and makes it look like this:
which is amazing, but then there are other times when my imagination takes a tiny little thing and blows it way out of proportion. This sets my expectations way too high and then I end up disappointed.
For example, every time I go on a trip my imagination will conjure up an elaborate story for the trip, it has got danger and heartbreak and romance and adventure. And then I actually go on my trip and it is as dull as a day in March.
lately my imagination has been on overdrive. I blame it on the fact that I am so bored at the moment. But it is getting a little ridiculous, even a trip to the grocery store has become full of expectations and then disappointment. It is silly.
I just felt like I needed to vent about that.
I am afraid I am in for the longest most aggravating weekend of my life. mi madre wants the two of us to go to a conference in chicago. It doesn’t sound bad until you realize that we will be spending 4 days doing the same thing over and over. AND we will be doing this with my mom’s not-fun-friends. also, I am broke so it isn’t like I am going to be shopping or eating tasty treats or even wandering the city. But there is no way for me to get out of it. So here is to the longest 4 days of my life.
Something I am excited for.
I am excited for tomorrow and the tomorrow after that and so on and so forth
I am excited for what each new day will bring. A job? A new friend? Some fly clothes.
Also thanks for tuning in these 30 days. I hope you enjoyed it!
Best. Sport. Ever.
5 weird things I like:
*I don’t know how weird these are, because I think they are normal, but I will give it a go.
- Stale popcorn
- men with shaved heads
- children’s tv shows (ie: PBS in the afternoon)
- sleeping in an unmade bed
- action packed, blood and gore movies. along with super cheesy rom coms.
Somewhere I would to live/visit
I live my norsk heritage, I have always wanted to go. (So badly in fact my cousin and I filled out an application(?) to be on a game show in Norway.) It seems like my kind of deal, even though I don’t like being IN water I do enjoy being NEAR water. And I would just have a grand old time.
of course there is Brazil as well. May as well live both places.
a quote I try to live by
This is hard because there is no real saying or quote that I try to live by.
Every once in a while this is a quote that will give me a little bit of a kick in the butt to keep me going, such as “ruin is the road to transformation” (which I got from Eat, Pray, Love and I am not ashamed to say so). But that is the extent of my quote influences.
I think the reason behind it is that I want to blaze my own trail in life so to speak, so I don’t like using other people’s ideas as a compass.
It may also be because I cannot memorize things verbatim, so I would end up butchering the quote and living a wonky, slightly off track life.
