Song of the Day – I Wanna Be Bad by Willa Ford
I woke up today in a feisty mood. Have you ever felt like your life had been boxed in? Like you weren’t experiencing the world around you? I am done living my life based off an iPhone calendar minute by minute. It’s time to think outside the box.
That thought process is exactly what led me to finally plan my trip to Rehoboth Beach, DE. Last night I spent an hour planning out this trip with a friend Dustin for a tweetup meetup with him and Twitter friends we have. It got me thinking about how much I just need to let loose (in a safe and orderly way of course) and it definitely helped me get excited for my upcoming two week trip to Virginia. I can’t decide which trip will be the most lively, but I know both will give me a wild ride.
I realized a few weeks ago, maybe a month ago, that sometimes you just have to have some fun. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and let your hair down. I just want to be bad. I am sick of being a southern bell buttoned up with ridiculous posture. That persona is exactly why some of my friends nicknamed me Pearl last year. Pearl was a reference to a persona they joked I had. They described me as being an older southern WASP housewife. The image was always of me sitting in the corner watching over them sipping my vodka martini and twirling my pearls.
Now that my life is changing I kind of just want to have a bit of fun for a while. Watching my friends having picnics in the park, running in groups, going to the beach, dancing through the night just has me wanting to live a little. I am twenty-six years old. It’s about time I start to act like it. Everything that I can be I am going to be. Skyroom dancing on a Sunday? Why not? Trip to Rehoboth with friends on a whim… Don’t mind if I do!
Who knows what is in store for me but I think it’s going to involve marathons, hiking, scuba diving, dancing and trying out just about everything my mind can think of.
