I had a slight epiphany last night (saturday night). I was in bed reading and it was really late, like really, really late. I finished my book and tried to log on to my library website so I could find another ebook to start and I couldn’t log in. It wasn’t until I went to the main page that I saw that every Sunday the login page is not available due to online maintenance between the hours of 3am-4. I wasn’t until that moment that I realized that I was up so late that websites were shut down for service upgrades since it was their low traffic time. Get off the internet at 3am Sara, nothing good happens after 3. That was something I used to tell my husband several years ago when he was doing the music thing. He worked as a bouncer part-time during this period because we were broke and it brought in some cash when he was home. He would work until close but then stay and party with the staff until like 5am. It pissed me off immensely when he would come home and then spend the entire day in bed to only get up, wash, and repeat. Nothing good happens at 3am.
When I was 11 years old I had an obsession with interior design. I watched design shows, read design magazines and books, and tried my design skills on my bedroom. I would draw to-scale maps of my room and then draw different ways that I could move the furniture. I think I moved it around at least once a month at that time even though my room was small and there weren’t that many options. I even applied to take interior design in college, but due to some ridiculous situation that involved them losing my art portfolio (part of the submission process) and me not being able to produce another one in the time frame I had left before the application deadline I lost my spot in the course. Yes, I am still bitter even though I took museum studies and geography (t was more of a travel and tourism but heavily focused on world geography and travel destinations) which are also things I love. I actually wanted to drop out of college and become a flight attendant but then 9/11 happened and I decided to stay in college for the time being. Which was probably a bad idea because of the year and money I wasted taking marketing during that time. I hated marketing. Five years in college and no diploma to show for it. Oh hindsight, how you bite me in the ass. I think that inner 11-year-old designer comes out periodically because it seems that every time Tom goes out-of-town for the weekend I embark on some moving shit around. This weekend was the livingroom. I really like the outcome, it has more of a designated sitting space computer/office space. Well, as much as an office space you ca have in 650 sq ft. ;)
Above is what I wore the last week. I hope you had a good weekend. Happy (or not so happy) Monday!
Did you have any career aspirations that didn’t pan out, or college regrets?
