My favorite quote, quite possibly of all time, comes from George Bernard Shaw: “You see things and say ‘why?’ I dream of things that have never been and say ‘Why not?'” I think this quote reminds us to stay creative, value our imaginations, and never lose our sense of wonder. In a world of people who are constantly doubting one-another, doubting themselves, and wondering what the hell they’re doing here, I think it is important to ask “why not?”
I am from Charlotte, NC and now live in Dallas, TX. I am 24 years old, 25 in September, and live alone with my adorable puppy Puff Daddy (he will be 2 in August). I mainly made this blog so I could post my dreams where someone can see them- not that anyone will, but they CAN and that’s the important thing. I will include other content from time to time, but mainly, I will stick to dreams.
Ideally, I would like to live in LA or Denver, or Austin, just not Dallas (no offense Dallas). We’ll see, maybe one day after I pay off all my student loans; which, at this rate will be never. I’m working on being happier and trying to focus on the positives in my life but sometimes life is a bitch and I have trouble staying upbeat- my forever motto: I was positive yesterday. (another motto of mine is “words are hard sometimes” but that’s neither here nor there.
Amendment: I made it to Austin. September 2019, I packed up my life in Dallas, threw all my belongs (bed, pink velvet chairs, vibrators, etc.) into a large, yellow Penske truck, wrangled Puff and skipped down to Austin at 70mph; Succulents sitting on the dash, dog passed out in a toy basket in between the seats, Diet Coke in hand.
Today (4-26-2020), I’m in a luxurious, spacious apartment minutes from Lady Bird Lake. While I recently lost my job during the COVID-19 pandemic, the weather continues to change, the sun still rises every day, and life goes on.
In this new, extremely weird, chapter of my life and the world as a whole, I will set out on a new path of self-discovery. While I take this time, unemployed and partially lost, to truly think about what I desire and what I want to do, I am taking it day by day, accepting the things I cannot change and taking it in stride.
There are a lot of unknowns in this chapter and I invite you on this journey with me to overturn the stones as they themselves reveal. The only certainty is this: I will write. I will document it all (all being dreams), starting from the past and writing my way into the present to decipher the messages my mind concocts and analyze the symbols as they appear, night after night.
