Today, I think I shall try something new. I think, today, I shall drive to the city an hour and half north of me.
I go there often, to a particular area, but today I think I will do a little exploring.
There’s a section of town that is quite artsy. It’s knows for being a place of hipsters, people who are trendy, the upper echelon, the place for people who are creative.
And since I want to be one of those people I think I will go join them.
I also don’t want to sleep all day – even though I could totally go home right now, crawl into bed, and sleep half the day. I didn’t get much sleep last night and woke up this morning, on a fucking SATURDAY, at 6:23 and got out of bed. I don’t remember what time I went to bed last night. Originally I was planning to take a “nap” and get up around 2 this morning to piddle around and then go back to bed.
I’m not sure why I fight sleep so much. I mean I certainly don’t in the morning when I need to get out of bed. I hate getting up of a morning, always have.
And I’m afraid my mind won’t work today after I get down there. Driving in the car, especially lately, has made me tired a lot. Really I don’t know what hasn’t made me tired. I’m always tired. I always want to crawl into bed and stay there.
But I digress.
It’s a rainy day but I don’t want to stay at home all day. I don’t want to call my friend who I think I need to get rid of, and I don’t want to call my other friend because she’s usually busy. I kind of just want to go off into the day and see where it takes me. See where I land.
I want to go off and discover today, a new area of town, and just be. I want to be not alone, but free. I want to freely explore.
I’m single. I’m alone. And I don’t want to have to rely on other people for my happiness or entertainment. I don’t need other people to do things with. We should be able to travel and explore alone.
And, if I were being honest, I would tell you that I hope, alone the journey, I will find someone. I will find my husband.
He’s not going to come to me sitting in my office at work – which is where I spend a lot of my time if I have noting to do on the weekends – nor will he find me if I’m sitting at home alone.
So off to explore I will go, confidently.
I went online and found two coffee houses I and I plan to at least check out one. I’m going to check out the one in the hip part of town because there’s also a store that I haven’t been to in a very long time that is earthy and has a lot of neat, interesting stuff.
Those are my plans. That and I hope to do a little more writing in the coffee house. I want to sit and watch people, too. Today should be a fun day. And I’ll try driving carefully since it’s raining.
