Don’t Date a Girl who Travels

3 Feb

She’s the one with the messy unkempt hair colored by the sun. Her skin is now far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed. It’s burnt with multiple tan lines, wounds and bites here and there. But for every flaw on her skin, she has an interesting story to tell.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date at the mall will suck the life out of her. Her soul craves for new experiences and adventures. She will be unimpressed with your new car and your expensive watch. She would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane than hear you brag about it.

Don’t date a girl who travels because she will bug you to book a flight every time there’s an airline seat sale. She wont party at Republiq. And she will never pay over $100 for Avicii because she knows that one weekend of clubbing is equivalent to one week somewhere far more exciting.

Chances are, she can’t hold a steady job. Or she’s probably daydreaming about quitting. She doesn’t want to keep working her ass off for someone else’s dream. She has her own and is working towards it. She is a freelancer. She makes money from designing, writing, photography or something that requires creativity and imagination. Don’t waste her time complaining about your boring job.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She might have wasted her college degree and switched careers entirely. She is now a dive instructor or a yoga teacher. She’s not sure when the next paycheck is coming. But she doesn’t work like a robot all day, she goes out and takes what life has to offer and challenges you to do the same.

Don’t date a girl who travels for she has chosen a life of uncertainty. She doesn’t have a plan or a permanent address. She goes with the flow and follows her heart. She dances to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t wear a watch. Her days are ruled by the sun and the moon. When the waves are calling, life stops and she will be oblivious to everything else for a moment. But she has learned that the most important thing in life isn’t surfing.

Don’t date a girl who travels as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues or social responsibility.

She will never need you. She knows how to pitch a tent and screw her own fins without your help. She cooks well and doesn’t need you to pay for her meals. She is too independent and wont care whether you travel with her or not. She will forget to check in with you when she arrives at her destination. She’s busy living in the present. She talks to strangers. She will meet many interesting, like-minded people from around the world who share her passion and dreams. She will be bored with you.

So never date a girl who travels unless you can keep up with her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her. Let her go.

The cute "local" nursery

About a year ago I had a basil plant that was slowly consumed by the Very Hungry Caterpillar and it died before I could save it.

Last winter I accidentally let my rosemary plant freeze to death.

I’ve decided that this year is going to be different.  This year my thumb WILL turn green.

What do Peanut Butter, Anne Of Green Gables, and Housework Have to do With Having a Better Day?

Do you remember a children’s show called “The Big Comfy Couch“? It was about a clown who lived on a HUGE couch and pulled out unusual things out from between the cushions.  I don’t remember much about the show itself but I know that it came on after one of my favorite shows… Sailor Moon. Whenever Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts finished up their latest adventure The Big Comfy Couch would come on and I found myself faced with a difficult decision: Should I go do my chores? Or watch the couch show?

What Scares You?

I have always been a sucker for a good inspirational quote.  Give me a saying by Gandi, Mother Teresa, or Buddah and I will: think about it for 2 minutes, plan to make a huge change in my life, feel good about myself, and then move on.  10 minutes later I have completely forgetting about the quote and my desire to change my life.  It’s amazing to me that although this is a constant occurrence, every single time I find a new quote I get really excited…

Live like this

Live like this

This one is different for me.  I have tried my best over the past few months to “live” this quote and it’s been awesome!  I’ve discovered that nothing makes me feel more alive than doing things that make me uncomfortable.  The best part is that there are an infinite amount of things that make me uncomfortable which means that everyday brings me a small dose of uncomfortable bliss.

Just take Seth’s advice.
