I feel like I am going crazy. My brain is spinning, my limbs are aching, and my fingers are itching. I want to do something crazy. I want to shake things up. Shake all of the monotony that I have allowed to creep into my life onto the floor, so that I am left bright, shiny and new.
I want to skydive, get another tattoo, run a marathon, book a trip SOMEWHERE and just go right. now. I want to ignore everything that I am supposed to be doing, all of the sensible life stuff, and just do anything and everything that occurs to me on the spur of the moment.
Spring has begun, and I feel like I am still stuck in the winter rut. I am tired of sitting indoors, waiting for adventure to happen. I need to go out there and find it. I need to get away from these ordered little suburbs, and lose myself in a big, messy city. I need to meet new people, make impulse decisions, and drink too much even though I have work the next morning.
I need to go on long night drives, spend days at the beach, and go to as many festivals as possible. I need to talk and laugh as loudly as possible, dance as badly as I want, and refuse to apologise for who I am.
Europe is still three months away, and I am going stir crazy. So I am going to take this feeling, this spark, this energy that has been slowly building up over the cold winter months, and make the most of it. I'm going to harness this feeling, and let it steer me wherever it wants. And most of all: I'm going to enjoy the ride.
Who's with me?
