To Stay or To Go (Writing 101, Day 12)

All I ever wanted was adventure–to leap into the unknown–to cut ties with everything familiar.  I wanted to lose myself in the wider world and, in the process, truly know what it is to live.

But I don’t know what doors to knock on.  I don’t know how to maintain responsibility whilst plunging into adventure. I’m considering applying for a big-girl job in my home town because student loans must be paid somehow. I’m making this up as I go along.

Am I settling?

Will the chance to leap come again?

This post is inspired by an assignment for the Blogging University class Writing 101: Finding Everyday Inspiration.

Am I the only one who hated today’s assignment?  I feel like fussing with word count sucked my inspiration rather than fueled it.

    My (read: non-expert) opinion is that you should apply for everything even remotely interesting and take the first job you’re offered (even if it’s local). That way, you can start saving so when the amazing adventure you’ve been dreaming of comes along, you’re ready to jump on it 🙂

      Thanks for the advice, Holly! I’m planning on applying for a specific job here. It’s funny, though, cause getting it means I have to stay in Chisago for two more years, which is the last thing I planned on doing. But you’re right, investing now will make for adventures later. 🙂
