Life doesn't always have to be planned out.

That's so hard for me to say...I wish that I could live like that. I wish I wasn't afraid of everything. It's good I have friends who remind me of the good things about change, and that I'm young. I have plenty of time for change. I don't have to do any one thing forever. In fact, I probably won't. I will leave Pratt and I don't have to be an advertiser...I don't have to stay in New York...in fact, I could bloody go to Ireland, or London, or Arizona, or or or any number of places and work if I wanted to (if I had the money to get there of course).

Life doesn't always work the way of a Nora Roberts' book - but that doesn't mean I can't take some aspects of the characters and their decisions into my own life. Maybe I'd be better and learn more about myself if I went somewhere I knew no one and just made my way there. Forced myself out of my box. Even in New York I've just created a new box for myself. I need to really find who I am; who I want to be. What makes me happy - on my own.
