Recently, I was asked what my ideal life would be when I’m older — I truthfully realized at that point that I move so fast and live such a day-by-day lifestyle, I really haven’t thought about it. Until now. I sat down for a good half hour this morning to compile a list of where I’d like to be come 15 years from now.
LIVE IN A SAN FRANCISCO DREAM LOFT
I want nothing more, down the road, to head out of the hectic NYC lifestyle and move to a more relaxed, less gridlock-ish city… San Francisco has and will always be one of those cities that just hit home for me. While I only spent a summer there, I do feel I left a part of my heart there (insert gagging I know). It’s just amazing weather, extremely unique shopping, people and restaurants. This is one of the many dream lofts I’d love to reside in. You know, real life and all.
BECOME THE EDITORIAL DIRECTOR FOR BON APPETIT
I love Public Relations, which is my current profession and college degree — however I do love writing as much as I love showing off amazing clients. With that in mind, I’d clearly love to stay in the food and beverage industry but it would be unreal to be directing writers on a team/writing a bit myself. Sigh….
OWN A REALLY HIP, YOUNG, WARM BREAKFAST SHOP WITH MY MOM
Ok so my mom and I have had this idea in mind since I was a kid. I first wanted to open a Bed and Breakfast but she told me you’d have to wake up 7 days a week at 5am. Which I will pass on unless I am charging $1,000 per room per night. Then I’d gladly get my ass moving at 5am. We see our breakfast shop as being the social hang out — amazing no fuss food, warm environment and fun people. Count me in.
RAISE HIPPIE CHILDREN
My old babysitter, Carly, was such a Dead Head and I totally wished to emulate her– minus the whole liking the Greatful Dead and all. She was so carefree and fun — her hubby down the road was very similar. Their baby, whom I must comment, is THE CUTEST kid I have ever seen? Is a total 2010 hippie kid. I literally want a baby just to dress them in tie dye and fringe.
ON THE SIDE, BECOME A WORLD RENOWNED BLOGGER
Hello? Blogging is the most cathartic thing I do in my life. I am lucky to have a big following of people who actually think I’m entertaining? So they stick by me when I go on tangents — so I thank you all for that. 2008 seems so long ago, wow…. Anyway I want to continue blogging on my Apple until I can’t see the screen — that’s how old I will be when I stop writing.
