I'm Restless...

you get older, and you presume at some point you will be ready to settle down with a career and a house and family and a more conventional life... and i'm on the cusp of that, and part of me screams to run away. this isn't about wanting to travel the world as much as it is about wanting to get lost, i suppose, but i do want to travel the world too. there are so many places and people and experiences out there, and the majority of us jam ourselves into the tiny corner of the world we've dug out for ourselves, and think escaping it for two weeks a year is enough...
but to run away would be to sacrifice all the other things. the family and the home and the stability.
i want to split my life in two.

this is all.

I am the same in one way or another. I want to travel and escape all the things in my life that are making me miserable but at the same time I have responsibilities. I wonder if there is something more out there for me and I am settling for the life I lead now as I have put so much time into it. Or I could go away and realise that I had it best where I am and some time out will help me put everything into perspective. Either way I think it is something that I need to do... it's now just working out how to afford it!!

hmm i understand that, i think. i'm feeling like I should travel the world first before I even bother thinking of marriage and kids. get myself travelling around the world before I stay in one place that says "Repetitive lifestyle for 50 yrs" kinda thing.
