I have a final in 7 hours but I can’t seem to get the idea of travel off of my mind.
I have no big travel plans for this summer, and it’s put me into a state of restlessness, anxiety, and depression.
This could possibly be my last summer, and I am not going anywhere. I’m spending my whole summer working 9-5 monday through friday.
Once I get thrust into the real world, my time available for travel will be extremely limited.
I’m realizing this more and more as I think about all the places I thought I would eventually get to go.
I don’t even want to go anywhere far. I want to travel within the U.S.
I spent my time going on trips to europe and asia, thinking I had all the time in the world to travel within the country.
In the years I’ve lived in the U.S., I’ve only ever seen the west coast (+ florida).
Obviously now, in the midst of finals and a caffeine high, is not the time for me to be making any large decisions, but I think I want to reassess my plans for the summer.
Take a couple weeks to travel.
I’d be happy even just to visit New York and Chicago.
Anddd if I’m gonna be ambitious, then… Seattle, D.C., New Orleans, and Boston. ><
Even just thinking about is making me calm.
