My world is on fire. How about yours? The end of the year is coming so quickly. I really wish time would stop. Despite terror attacks, shootings and army /national guard intervention in two of the three places I call home, all is well ( I guess). Paris is in the midst of one of the most horrific terror attacks ever. Nastysau/The Village of Sin is living up to its name with a string of gang related violence. At this point, I just have my fingers crossed Miami can hold it together for my arrival. Adding in the stress of planning my personal future, it really is enough to send a girl’s head spinning. I must take time to ask myself the important questions.
Why (oh why) could I not be content with a mediocre life?
Why is following ones passion more difficult than being comfortable and miserable?
Why hasn’t an Arab prince invited me to sail on a yacht around the world ?
Tasks for the rest of 2015;
- Internship Hunting- I KNOW that I am great/excellent/fabulous/witty/smart/resourceful/practical/charming/lovely with a natural charisma and sparking personality. Why does no one else understand this? I’m not asking for blood, just a bloody internship ( at a global marketing and branding company that involves travel, socializing and an opportunity to perfect my French all while paying me handsomely). Please.
- House Hunting-Paris is a city that is representative of culture, beauty and embraces the lifestyle that I aspire to. Can the housing Gods come down and find me an adorable small flat with view, natural light, elevator, bathtub and washing machine that allows puppies? Please.
- Staying Alive- Well at this rate… Please.
I am aware that passionately wanting the perfect job, perfect house and perfect life without compromise is unrealistic/downright delusional.Never stopped me before. Only shooting stars break the mold. Thank goodness for that.
