I occasionally have moments when I just sit down and really take a look at my life and all the people in it. I usually do it just to gain some sort of perspective on whatever it is I’m worried about, but I always come away from these moments thinking, “Dear GOD how did I get so lucky?!”
So, to every single person I know and love: thank you. I don’t deserve you.
I just sent applications to four different stores. Productivity feels unbelievable. Even if I don’t get hired by any of them, just realizing I have the courage to take the first step is incredibly encouraging.
Who am I looking for exactly? I honestly have no idea sometimes, because it seems as of now, I’ll just settle for anyone who can make me laugh. But here it goes, what I would hope to find in you.
I would hope you like to travel. I have dreams of visiting many states and countries, and I would love it if you joined me on a journey like that. But if you’d rather stay guard at home and make sure everything is safe and sound, then so be it. I’ll call you when I can, and I can only hope you’ll miss me as much as I’ll miss you. I hope you like the outdoors. No, I don’t mean stepping outside to a street full of cars and stores; go on hikes or bike down the coast, Earth is truly beautiful, maybe not as beautiful as yourself, but surely a sight to see.
I hope you read. If anything, this is the most important. Reading is just wonderful. And if we happen to be interested in the same books, holy we’d be inseparable. I just find people who read so attractive. The ones you find more involved in a book than the people surrounding them or the ones who get in trouble in the middle of class for reading and not paying attention. I could tell you I’m not cliché, but that’d be a lie. I would love to meet you in a café while your eyes are glued to a book with a hot cup of coffee or tea sitting in front of you. I really need to lay off the romance novels and movies.
It’d be nice if you’re passionate about something. I love hearing people speak about their passion. They go on and on and their eyes glow with a light that can’t be made very easily and it’s just beautiful. I could possibly listen to you forever about your passion for your dreams, or anything really. Those who are passionate about something, I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s amazing. You can see it in the way they speak, their smile, how they’re unable to describe the feeling it gives them. I love and adore that.
Maybe I’ll finish this some other time, but for now, this will be it.
I hope you’re out there,
this so much. so much.
