My wife and I just had our African wedding celebration with her side of the family. It was off the charts.
OMG YOU GUYS!!!!!!!
I hate when people insinuate I’m a transient. They think I have no understanding of stability. That my nomadic sensibilities keep me from being fully attached.
Well, I resent that. I constantly have to explain why I quit my job, or don’t have a boyfriend, or need to borrow $6. I do venture a lot of different places, because I find that I am most unhappy when I’m unable to visit family and friends, or see the wonders of the world, when provided the opportunity. It is during those “stable moments” I am depressed and constantly planning a escape.
I keep rereading that quote from the Blacklist. It’s stunning; and overwhelming, because I relate on such a instinctual level. To walk the wall, get a good nights sleep, listen to live music…I crave all of it-all the time. And I wish my parents were rich, so I can justify this innate desire to experience. The rich always get a pass.
I want…one more night of jazz at the Vanguard. I want to stand on summits and smoke Cubans and feel the sun on my face for as long as I can. Walk on the Wall again. Climb the Tower. Ride the River. Stare at the frescos. I want to sit in the garden and read one more good book. Most of all I want to sleep. I want to sleep like I slept when I was a boy. Give me that, just one time.
How could you possibly love her? You don’t even know her favorite book.
Guys, how often do I say this??
Except maybe along the lines of, “how could you hook up with him? You don’t even know his middle name!”
This is way more romantical.
The more I travel, the more open minded I’ve become. Despite exploring new activities involving people, places & things the fact remains: I’ll always opt for bright eyes and strong chests, French fries, Chinese food, good music, whiskey, MAC cosmetics, dancing, high heels, mystery thrillers and international travel.
I abhorred assholes, food associated with Thanksgiving, music associated with Christmas, non creative 9 to 5s, vodka, Indian food, working out, self help books, ATL and ASSHOLES.
I’ve learned to appreciate a good steak/burger (after restricting my diet to chx and fish for so long), Belgium beer, some country music, beautiful fragrances, New York and Boston, kick boxing, singing worship music and extreme temps.I’d like to thing this will be a continual growth process.
