I am an adult! I am saying it more to convince myself than anything else. I do adult things like work and pay bills, but there has to be more to it than that. I do not even like those things, they are really draining. I am still early on in my adulting journey, I am pretty over it already. I want the reasonable, kind of fun things that come with being an adult. I do not want much, I just want to live a comfortable, simple life with mild entertainment. As much as I kind of like my apartment, I want my fantasies to come true. Indulge me as I list my simple desires…
I want a puppy, badly. I want a pet best friend to cheer me up and force me to leave the house. We will go for walks, take naps, and eat food that has fallen on the floor.
A thriving vegetable garden A few years ago I found out I have a knack for gardening. My grandma had a garden and was always splitting her produce between the families. They way I see it, if I am not going to grow a human in my womb, I can at least grow some eggplant and zucchini.
A claw-foot bathtub The end.
A porch with a chair swing I have southern roots, so swinging on a porch drinking sweet tea is one of my happy places. The thing I love about porches is that I can be outside without really being outside, that is always ideal. Also, a great place for napping.
Vacation at least once a year I am being realistic. I do not have old money and I doubt I will be rich and famous, but I can at least try to get away and do something new one time each year. I would love to visit Barcelona, Budapest, or Phuket. What a blast that would be!
And maybe, just maybe a successful novel or a few children’s books. I am currently suppressing my affinity for writing. Mainly because I am afraid to acknowledge that I really like it and that I have zero talent. I really enjoy blogging but anyone can blog, right? The book market is oversaturated, what’s the point? I don’t know. Anyway, this is about fantasies. I would like to have written a book or two and achieve mild success. I do not have high expectations *Kanye, shrug*.
None of these things are impossible and I think they can be achieved. I am putting it out in the universe in hopes it decides the give me a high-five and knowing wink. I have to overcome my own self-doubt and uncertainty to keep my eye on the prize. Until then, this will be a friendly reminder of my #AdultGoals.
