Humble Me

Okay, I want to know how bloggers post at least every other day. I cannot seem to keep up with it. I come home from work, and usually I turn into a vegetable — specifically a carrot. Anyway, I just can't find the energy to post everyday, and since I don't do outfit posts, and I don't want to do "inspiration" posts every day, I wait until I have something I deem significant to talk about.

As I've mentioned before, I've been told I'm a gypsy (though not exactly the Esmeralda-type from the Disney version of Hunchback of Notre Dame; I don't wear harem pants or belly shirts). A friend pointed out to me, after making me listen to this song, that whenever Miss Lambert sang about livin' in an airstream with homemade curtains, she specifically thought of me.

Today, while on my lunch break and listening to this song, I fully realized my inherent gypsy qualities. However, I must note that I am not the kind of gypsy described on urbandictionary.com. I am the forever unsatisfied gypsy. For example, when I want to play the piano, I'm not near one. When I desire to go to the beach, I've no vacation time to get away. When I lust over a pair of affordable shoes, I don't have the money to buy them. And most importantly, when I want to set the gypsy in me free, I feel so constrained that I don't now how to let it out of its cage.

I want to be a writer! I want to be a professional arguer! (No, not a lawyer.) I want to be an anthropologist! I want to be a bartender in St. Thomas! I want to travel everywhere and meet everyone (at my convenience and when I feel like talking, of course)! I want to be a physicist! I want to be a college professor! I want to be a singer! I want to be a dancer! I want to be a theologian! I want to be a model! I want to be a stylist! I want to be a philosopher! I want to be a muse! I want to be a hairstylist! I want to be CEO of a large company! I want to be a cowgirl! ...that's seventeen "wants" for you right there. And that's not a comprehensive list.

Does anyone else feel this aching desire to keep moving on to something different?

yes. I do get those urges. and then law schools stifle and kill every single one of them until I submit myself to the inevitable truth that I will enroll this year.

Yep, actually...suppose that's why I quit my job and am moving back to the Midwest to learn small business management, lol.

Yes, totally, I want to do a million things, and then sometimes I want to do absolutely nothing. Maybe you can do different things at different points of your life?

Another great animated song that might help you fuel that inspiration to do and to change:
