So one of my favorite YouTubers, SupaDupaFlyGirl, is looking to travel the world in the upcoming months (she’s accepting donations for her adventure here).
Every time I watch one of her videos it really inspires me to pursue my dreams–cheesy I know, but true! Anyway, this recent video made me realize that the only things I want to do in life are to travel and take in as many new experiences as I can, as well as aspire to creative greatness. I really want to get back into writing fiction–not just nonfiction–everyday. I also know I want to move out of Boston when I graduate, and I’m no longer considering NYC as my be-all-end-all goal place to live. I’m really going to work hard to figure all this out in the next few months, because I believe with a combination of great effort and the right frame of mind I can really accomplish and mature a lot as a person (see my “overcoming Generalized Anxiety Disorder” phase of my life). I can’t go on without having a clear, overarching purpose in life to back up my everyday decisions. I need a foundation to stand on, and I know now it’s not going to fall in my lap. I used to think it was far too assuming to think I can work out my life like this, but I believe now that I’ve accepted the philosophy of “living in the present, because yesterdays gone and tomorrow is not promised” I’ll be able to do this in a way that I won’t compromise any of my past progress. I can do this.
