now, this is what i'm talkin about

This is awesome. My free-spirited nature shouts YES! I so want to engage in the vagabond lifestyle. As I graduation nears quickly (less than a month!!!) I have a strong itch to travel and expand my horizons. I may be poor and hope for a job that can get me out of this pit but it's unlikely in this economy. All I need now is a buddy cuz let's face it. traveling the world is not meant to be embarked solo.


The practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic or literary pursuits. In this context, Bohemians can be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds. -Wikipedia

turquoise nails and a pilot

yesterday at work a customer, who happened to be an older gentleman said this in a most chipper tone: "Ooo, I like your nails. I'm a painter. I paint landscapes."

My co-worker Andrew was standing nearby and promptly said, "Did you give him your number? I was totally grossed out by this part and it while it was a little odd that this older gentleman commented on my nails I was flattered nonetheless.

later a young gentleman who appeared to be around my age walked in to have a book bound. it would take about a half-hour for this job. i noticed it was a flight textbook when my boss brought it to me to give back to the young man. i was automatically curious and decided i would talk to him about it. even though i was in the back of the store putting away freight i kept my eye open for his return. lol hey, you've got to have some fun at work and it was a very boring day.

as it turns out, we had a delightful conversation about our respective careers. once he left my boss made a scene about my flirtatious efforts. i joked about my interest in this fine young pilot. some friends at home said why didn't you give him your #? i replied that i had initiated the conversation enough and that it was up to the guy to do the rest. this guy friend of mine said, "oh, but guys love when women come on strong." I don't know about this.
