Shake it up

I'm a restless creature....sort of. Sometimes I will get the urge to just get in the car and go. Where? I don't know but I just want to go. I never do. You see, I have this thing called a job and I have rent and bills to pay every month. I would love to just jump on a plane and head to Europe or some tropical island or Asia....see something I've never seen before. It tends to come in spurts. I'll be fairly happy and content with where I am in my life but then BAM! out of nowhere, I get the urge to take off. Like now. I live a pretty good life. I have a great apartment, a good job, a plan for the future, good friends and family but I'm getting restless. I feel the need to shake things up a bit. Usually when I feel this way, I rearrange furniture. Problem is, there's nothing to rearrange. I have too much furniture in my bedroom - it won't fit any other way and I can't really rearrange the rest of the apartment as I live with someone. So instead, I'll just blog about it and try to find some way to channel my nomadic instinct.

You are your father's daughter when it comes to being restless. He has the same ideas on a regular basis. If only he would blog about it and get it out of his system that way.

Maybe you could have a theme night an pretend you're on vacation? Go get some really good Indian food and watch a Bollywood movie and uh, get a henna tattoo or something? (change activities as appropriate for different destinations) Yeah, I guess that's kind of lame compared to actually traveling. sigh.
