Tout le monde, today, I want to discuss dreams... last night I was having a nightmare about a beauty pageant gone wrong, when Chuck Bass showed up and turned it into a dream. I digress. We all have life dreams. It is likely that we had them when we were very very little and as we grew, our dreams morphed and twisted and by the time we were done with college and ready to attain them, we were way too bogged down in student loan debt that we ended up with minimally paying jobs that bogged us down even more and grew satisfied with a life of boring, dull, gets-old-fast pub crawls and saying we'll "go out" and then end up eating Oreos and pizza and watching Netflix.
I'm not hating... I do it too... I eat two Oreos a day (double stuf) and I even found a "This is my eating Oreos and pizza and watching Netflix shirt" that is definitely on my birthday list (which is coming up... in October... ehemmm... cough, cough).
Where was I going with that? Oh yes, dreams. Since I studied in Paris in 2008, I have wanted to work in fashion and live in Europe. Last year, I started : the daily savant : and love it (and all of you!) and since about a month ago, I live in Europe...
... but the dream just isn't there yet! I feel more like a Stepford wife than an international fashion star. I still only know about 5 people in this whole entire country and spend my days vacuuming, cleaning, baking, crafting, reading, and yes, blogging. In the states, I worked about 4 jobs at a time and was dying for some time to sleep, but I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE... and that is why I'm going to London on Sunday!
I still only have about 10% of the wardrobe I had in the states, so I've been Pinteresting like crazy to come up with some rather ingenious new methods for mixing and matching the precious few pieces I still have! In the meantime, maybe I'll dream of being Miroslava Duma... that should help... Oh yes, and here I am being a Stepford wife. Just another day in the life... oops... got to take the brownies out of the oven!
