I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, and I've decided that I need a vacation.
Not like the normal family vacation that my whole family takes every year. I want it to be just me.
I mean, I'm not a loner, I love being with my family and my friends and everyone. I'm happy when I'm with people, but sometimes I feel like the only way I'll ever actually relax is if I go somewhere by myself. Everyone needs a little "me time"; that chance to be able to just think without any worries or distractions.
I want to find some isolated beach in the Florida Keys, or stand on a cliff overlooking the sea somewhere in the world. I want to go on my own schedule and not worry about upsetting anyone if I make my own decisions.
I want to go to a famous museum and wander there all day, gazing at paintings without worrying about my sister complaining about how art is stupid.
I want to sit on a bench in a park in a big city and just people-watch (which some might consider mildly creepy).
I want to go places just to go; not to be a tourist, but a traveler. They say getting to your destination is more fun than the destination itself. I think that's true.
This post was a bit abstract, so apologies for that. I'm kind of in a dreamy state right now.
