I've decided that when I grow up I want to be an urban explorer.

I could find the beauty and fascination in the places that people no longer find useful or interesting or financially able to sustain. Nearly frozen in time, with nothing but a fine layer of dust and decay to remind explorers otherwise.

I couldn't think of a better adventure to go on with somebody.

Broken Bells - "Sailing to Nowhere"

[James Mercer is my hero. Check out this LP in its entirety.]


5 amusing musings:

Ooh, I absolutely love that song. And you are one step ahead of me, because I have no idea what I want to do with my life.

Sailing to Nowhere. This one I liked.

I've always wanted to be an explorer or any sort! Even now, my secret fantasy is to be an astronaut. I hate math and I get carsick, but I'm hoping they'll find a special job for me where my role in space exploration is more Jody-Fosterian than practical (or nonfictional).

Grace: I know, IT'S LOVELY! And I don't really either, because you can't make much of a living being a writer or an urban explorer. I have the rest of my life to decide these things, though. :}

Blondie: I think you mean *especially* liked, considering you enjoy every single one of my recommendations...

And I have a secret dream o drinking water as well as testing out newton's law of inertia in a zero-gravity environment. It sounds cool.

Ace: Awh, thanks :)

That's really exciting that you got to do that! That's one of the things that I'm looking forward to as an older person... exploring without parental supervision :D
