My Future

Am I really the only one not leaving? And even that is up in the air. I asked Tif if I needed to make way for other bloggers and I'm waiting for the prognosis on that. If I have to go, goodbye ya'll. If not I'll see you next week (maybe I would still see you next week because I want a better goodbye than that one)

But my post for this week :)

So lately I’ve been thinking about the future which a lot of great quotes say that will make me anxious. Well I’m already anxious and dreaming calms me down.

A lot of the time I think of my future house. I want a place in the woods of the Northwest. I want a big old farm house with a lot of land. Has anyone ever read Peaches? In the epilogue the stingy rich girl has a complete change of heart and gets all this land and an old farm house and makes it a “home for lost souls.” She rescues abandoned pets and abandoned people. Basically I want to be foster mother with a bunch of kids and animals. Some nights when I’m really into it I can plan out the entire house and what the stable will look like and the tree house over the creek. Lots of dreams.
Then I think about my job. Today in class we watched a movie with all the different adaptive sports people with spinal cord injuries could do. It was inspiring and I thought of my office and who I would see and all the different ways I could help. One of the things we have to have before we graduate is a personal philosophy. I was thinking of what I could base my personal philosophy on and came up with two quotes: “Everyone has a sob story but no one has an excuse,” and “your argument is invalid.”
Basically I’m ready to start living my life. I’m ready for that downtown apartment I’ll get right when I graduate and do my internship in either NYC or Portland. I’m excited to meet someone and create a family with them. I’m really just excited for my future. 

Oh and BTW November 4th makes it a year of blogging for me... maybe it is time to leave. Hmm. 

"Would you leave me,
If I told you what I've done?
And would you need me,
If I told you what I've become?
'cause it's so easy,
To say it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love,
To say it to you out loud"


  1. I'm not leaving!!!!!!!! I love this too much, and I guess it is about time to start actually putting things of substance for me. I want you to stay :)

  2. Tif is letting me stay :) Now I just need to find some new material :P

  3. Don't leave!!!!!
    MJ is leaving because he's got a busy new life and he's just felt like it's time to be done here.
    I'm no longer blogging here because I'm trying to write an entire novel in November and it's taking up all my writing juices. I'm also trying to be more consistent with my personal blog
    So, if you miss me extremely much you can just go read my posts there about my novel progress :)

  4. Yea my roommate last year did NaNoWriMo and it drove her crazy so I get that. Well I will miss you and MJ but I will definitely check out your personal blogs and continue to stalk your fb :)
