These Eyes Wander
By that I mean that I don't see myself as a part of the puzzle that is the day-to-day life so many people I know are living. It's a constant rat-race; a constant struggle and need to one-up the person sitting next to you. It's everyone thinking that the goal of life is to fit into this mold that is our current society.
It would be a shame to give up my dream of modeling, but I sometimes think I would be much happier living out my other dream: being completely free. I simply want to exist. I don't want to call one specific place home and I don't want any specific sort of career. I want to drift with the wind and meet so many people and go so many places, even if that means doing it alone.
When I tell my friends and family this, most of them ask questions like, "You don't ever want to 'settle down'?" or "What about college?".
To answer the first question: I suppose I would like to settle down in a sense if I met the right person. The problem is, not to sound cynical, I can't imagine that there is a person out there who could truly handle myself and my lifestyle.
To answer the second: I don't need a piece of paper that says I sat through four years of lectures to be considered intelligent.
Anyway, I'm thinking about putting together a trip (to nowhere in particular) and if anyone would like to join me or throw out ideas please feel free to send me an email or comment below.
