Sometimes it sucks to be an adult. Sometimes I just want to get up, pack a few things and get going. Just board a plane to somewhere and be gone for a week, or three, or six.
Of course I can’t do that. I can’t just leave. I have kids to take care of and a life to live here. I can also not just squander large amounts of money.
But I still want to go. I want to see new things, have new experiences and talk with new people. I need a break from everyday life. I want to have a little of extraordinary day life. Most of all I would like to have the freedom to come and go as I please without having to be responsible and considering everyone’s schedule before I take a step out of the house.
Maybe at some point in my life I will get that freedom back. At least that is something to look forward to.
