    I Want To Run Away And Join The Circus.

    I do. I REALLY do. I REALLY DO. I want to be somewhere I've never been. I want to explore. I want to bump into happy messes and crash into love. I want to dive headfirst in a pool of craziness and come out gasping for air and bask in the head rush it gives me. I'm tired of being...

    And I'd Be Twirling 100 Hula Hoops!

    I love the Cirque du Soleil. And Chinese acrobats. When I see the acrobats twirling in the air, it makes me feel free as if I were twirling with them. I also love to see all the amazing things that the human body can do. It makes me feel strong, even though I can't do those...

    When I was kid that was something I dreamed

    about for some reason. I was like 7 and it was in the summer. I remember packing my stuff and wanting to leave my yard. and just go. I had no idea where I was going to go or how to get there. I wanted to go because I wanted to be a clown so badly.

    Although I am happy with my life, the thought of running away sometimes sounds very appealing. Although I'd have nowhere to go, that actually adds to the appeal.
