I had an afternoon coffee date last week. He was an attractive, ambitious, well spoken man. I found myself taking about my travels. The more I talked, the more that he looked at me like I was an alien. My sentences all began with “last weekend when I was in New York” or “when I got back from Europe” or even “when I was following Black Taxi a bit this summer.” These apparently are not normal conversation topics or relatable experiences. My priorities are not necessarily the norm.
I sometimes wonder if my capriciousness makes it harder for me to find people with whom I can really connect. Don’t get me wrong, I know that there are others out there who value travel, change, and experience as much or more than I do, I’ve met them, but we seem to be few and far between. Currently though, this difficulty in my dating life is a godsend. It looks as if I am going to be an extremely busy lady over the next year!
Up next on the eccentric Sarah front, my lofty idea of making the move to NYC. I am finding just the idea of the move, makes me giddy and tingly all over. I am so excited for what the future may hold, but I am a little nervous as well. What if I cannot get my family on board with the idea? What if my plan for a roommate falls through? What if I never even find an apartment in the first place? What if none of the graduate programs in the city accept me? Or if I cannot find an internship in the fall?
These are a lot of “what ifs” and pretty large ones. Luckily, I am quite convinced that this is the path that I am supposed to be on, which makes it easy to have hope and faith that it will all fall into place one way or another. These questions also make my drive to accomplish a great deal in the next seven months very strong. I am a force of nature if I want something bad enough. Now is time to harness all of that power in one direction. Look out! I may just conquer the world! 😉
