Wanderlust

Currently I’m procrastinating because I have a research paper to do and I thought the benefits of being a communications major was no research papers but I’m in a literature class (that I really don’t like) and I have a research paper due Tuesday. I think I kind of forgot how to write them, it’s been over a year! Luckily the other paper I have Tuesday is essentially done which means that I have to do an article by tomorrow that I honestly don’t want to do. The timing of it seems really awkward so it just seems pointless to me. I actually have two articles to do but the other is pretty easy.  Now I’m just rambling to avoid real work.

I have a real knack for wanting to travel. I’m never quite content on where I am in the world and I always want to be somewhere else. I go to school in Frederick Maryland and it’s one of the prettiest places I could ever be.After I see the world I could easily see myself settling down here. I would have to have a lot of money but it would be nice to live here later in life. It’s one of the first places I’m content in living. Sure Lancaster is good and all but I couldn’t spend my whole life there. The people are ignorant and they need to open their minds.

After college I obviously want a job that will allow me to travel. What that is, I have no clue. The thing that gets me and I think about a lot is where do I want to end up? I would say the majority of my friends from Maryland want to stay in Maryland. People from here have an odd obsession with their state that I just don’t understand. My assumption would be that a lot of the people I went to high school with will end up back in Lancaster whether they plan to or not Lancaster is essentially a black hole. I think that’s why it’s really good I went out of state for college, if I would have stayed in Pennsylvania I’m afraid that I would end up back where I was and I would really hate that.

I don’t know where in the world I’ll end up. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to settle down in one place. Whenever I’m somewhere for more than a month I’m ready to see what the world has in store for me. I don’t think life is meant to live in one place, at least not for me. There are 50 states within my country, half of which I haven’t even seen a corner of and more than that there are countries upon countries that are ready for me to explore and I can’t wait to do that.

When the question comes down to where I’m going to live when I grow up, I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to answer that and that’s okay with me.
