Sometimes I feel like there are two versions of me living in one body.
Version 1 wants to live in a cute apartment downtown in a big city. She wants to work a lot in a fulfilling job that challenges and rewards her. She wants to go out to fancy restaurants and trendy bars. She wants to go to the spa and get manicures. She wants to travel and do a lot of shopping.
Version 2 wants to live in a cute house in the country (but still within 30 minutes of a Fred Meyer and Costco) with lots of animals. She wants to work (because I go crazy when I’m not working and I end up thinking about and writing things like this) but not endless hours of work. She wants to go to cute little diners and cozy pubs. She wants to sew cute clothes and paint. She still would like to do a lot of shopping.
Version 1 is currently winning as I am going to school to do a job that will require me to work a lot and let me afford things like fancy restaurants and spa visits while also making me feel good about what I do. Besides, I don’t know how to sew and I’m not the best at painting so version 2 would be a little frustrated. But maybe later on in life, version 2 will have her moment to enjoy life and give version 1 a break.
But if there’s one thing all of me can agree on, it’s the shopping. Shopping brings us together.
