Ok, so I missed Friday. I had the blues after saying good bye to two coworkers over two days. We’re a close knit team over here at seventeen, so having to have even one farewell makes us all emotional and keen to stuff our faces with cake. Today I’ll catch up with my two tasks: 16) if the world were to end tomorrow, what you you spend your remaining time doing and 17) what do you want to be when you’re older?
If the world were to end tomorrow… I’d, of coure, spend my time with those closest to me. I mean, everyone would want to be with their families so I’d try sneak just an hour with each important person in my life. I’d eat all my favourite foods until I was stuffed, I’d have really expensive wine, cuddle my cat until she scratched my face off… little things, all my favourite things. I’d lie outside and look at the stars, even if the city lights make them not too bright. I’d watch the sunrise drinking hot chocolate with someone I love who has insomnia like me. I’d be happy.
What I want to be… this question makes my mind immediately start singing “I wish I was little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller; I wish I had a girl who looked good; I would call her; I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat; and a ’64 Impala.”
But seriously, I am doing what I wanted to (well one of my dreams, being a ‘fisherperson’ just wasn’t for me.) But, like most of my UCT friends, I really want to be an author of novels. To have just one book published. I want to be married (yes, I said it). I want to be, I guess, stable, independent and able to support myself and others. So far? I think I’m on the right track.
