The monthly crisis of an over-thinker.

You know a mid-life crisis? Well I think we all have quarter-life ones as well. Being the over-thinker I am, I usually have one of these every month or so. Sometimes they're brief. Other times they last the whole weekend. 
This morning, I had one of these crisises. As you may know, I just recently changed my major for the final time. I'm now a family and human development major and I love it. As before though, I have no idea what I am going to do with that major. The original plan was just to use it as a device to get into graduate school to get a masters in something else that would be more useful to getting a career. The thing is, I finish my undergrad classes in hopefully 10 months and I have no idea what I want to do my masters in. Scratch that. It's not so much that I don't have an idea, it's that I have too many ideas. I want to do everything. I got that from my mother. The physician who would love to be a chef, waitress, restaurant owner, pilot, truck driver, and renovation lady with the Property Brothers on the side. 
So anyway, there's that and the fact that I need to get the heck out of Arizona. Don't get me wrong, I love Arizona. But, after 14 years, it's time to try something new. And preferably something that doesn't get above 90 degrees.
I've been daydreaming of all the places that are relatively cool all year round or currently cool just to get me through the end of this harsh summer. In fact, I'll admit that I added several of these places to my favorites on my Weather Channel app. I know, I'm crazy. 
Where would you like to live?

(Here are some I've been daydreaming of)


  1. Definitely San Francisco!! I wish to visit this city one day and I have a feeling that I would love to live there :)

  2. I basically want to travel the entire US and pick our my favourite states - possibly marry an American boy, and live there for always.

    Ever since I was a kid - this is going to sound so cray-cray - I've felt like I'm "meant" to live first step? Actually visit the country haha.

  3. Come to Washington DC! I'm only an hour away!! :)

  4. I know what you mean about these mid-life criseseseseses (such a weird word Haha!) I think it's normal for students without a direct path. I mean, I know I made the right choice in what I want to study - illustration, and I know I'm loving it and it's the right thing right now.

    But after this summer, I'm not 100% sold on the idea of being an actual illustrator after. Like, maybe I'll want to teach? Or go into art therapy? Or something totally different and go my own path? I have no clue. So yeah it gets scary often. I think it's easy to lose sight of how young we ACTUALLY are, when we've already done so much growing up compared to before. It feels like we've got to decide NOW but we're really quite young and have quite a lot of time. I use that to comfort myself sometimes :P

    I'd love to live in California, somewhere warmer than here (canadian winters make me miserable miserable miserable) haha.


  5. If you're hoping to stay away from heat, I would take DC off the list. While it's just in the summer, it gets pretty hot here and we have terrible humidity so it makes it feel even worse. Soupy weather as I like to say. But it is pretty the rest of the year.

    1. For sure! But not much can be worse than an Arizona summer and a Puerto Rico summer haha. I've had extreme heat with and without humidity so I think I'd be able to handle it ;)

  6. Ah! I have heard so many amazing things about San Francisco I would LOVE to try living there. DC is such a great city, too... I hope you enjoy the fact that you have so many options!

  7. I would love to live in Germany...haha. Or anywhere in Europe really! I love traveling and hope to be able to go there someday!

  8. Deffo Colorado!!! I'm in love with the 'Ole Wild West. :)
