you know what i want for my birthday?
i want my passport, actually.
i have the wanderlust. badly.
i want to drive off and go to Canada if i feel like it (probably picking up friends along the way. :D ), or call my uncle and ask him if i can use his family discount to fly standby to [insert country here].
i live in the middle of the united states, you see. in ohio.
which, while there are a great many interesting things to be done, none of those things are interesting to me. i don't like clubs, i don't like football, i'm not into sports, and i don't care for haunted houses.
i want to go on a library tour of the world. libraries and museums. because i'm just that nerdly. (^.-)
i mean, i see all these pretty photos of fancy-ass libraries in europe and pretty museums all over the world and think "omg, wanna gooooooooooooooooooooooo!" and then i suddenly remember that i haven't a passport. so i can't even leave the country (legally). well. i can leave. i just can't come back. and really, it's a pain to pack, and all my stuff is here. besides, i'm sure freight to ship all my jewelry supplies alone would be hideous.
the plan is ::
save dollars for a year or so
go visit aunt rae in sweden and see england and possibly paris if there's time/money left, sketching all the way
go home and sleep and save more dollars for a while (undetermined amount of time)
go visit friends in Canadialand for a while
come home and sleep and save more dollars
go visit the rest of the world*
*this can happen in any order, so long as dollars happen before travel.
because i think that sounds like a fun life-plan (or maybe a fun-life plan? :P), don't you? :D
p.s., my birthday is halloween, i'll be 25. should i have a sale for it?
or is that like those kids in highschool who would walk around with dollar bills safety pinned to their shirts on their birthdays, so that others would know, and give them money?
