Vacation From Life

A three-month vacation from my current life to do anything in the world: how awesome would that be?

For starters, I think I would try to complete by my 25 Before 25 list. That would pretty much cover the majority of what I’d love to be able to say I have accomplished at the moment, with the exception of having visited other countries, of course. It would mean that I would have the DSLR of my dreams already, something I have always imagined having before visiting the places I dream of visiting.

I’d be completely free of any and all worries that I have in my noggin as of currently that have to do with worries. And those worries are really annoying. Because I’m really tired of them, and it’s as if each and every time I feel like I have finally destroyed them they come back harder and even more equipped to fight. But it’s always a mere illusion.

And the drama would cease to exist. I wouldn’t have paranoid people in my life, I wouldn’t feel the need to feel paranoid… NO paranoia!

No allergy shots, no mental problems…

Basically, I’d mostly sit back and relax, feeling so wonderful and refreshed and relieved, or so I imagine.

What would you do?

Ugh, paranoia has to be the absolute worst feeling in the world right next to anxiety and panic. I know those three all too well, m’dear. And they suck tremendously!! You have to get allergy shots? Ugh that must be such a drag, I just deal with my allergies as they aren’t that severe, but they are real bothersome. I just let them fly and they eventually stop pestering me. I’m sorry you have to get shots for yours – needles are creepyyyy!

I hope you really DO get some sort of relaxation in some time, if you can! It will totally ease your mind, I try to kick back as much as possible, myself.

there are so many things I wish I could do…technically I could do them, but there are certain things holding me back. i was going to go traveling in europe with a friend this summer but family obligations and just emotional stresses held me back. If i didn’t have to worry about my mom’s health I would go everywhere!!! I wanna backpack across europe and road trip for long periods of time…pretty much escaping my current life hahaha

It would be rather awesome to be able to be free of all the things that really stress and tire you out, especially the paranoia, that is no good at all.

Maybe you could try and do the goals that you can do at the moment, like watching the Harry Potter movies or even work out ways to achieve the bigger ones. Maybe try and make a savings plan (if possible) for the camera, because that would be really wonderful. :* I know it’s not that easy though.

I would love a vacation from life. No worries and just relaxation sounds amazing 🙂 Even if it wasn’t a vacation from life, just having a 3 month vacation would be nice for me. Now that I’m working, I don’t take that many days off in a row.

I would probably spend it on my hobbies, like updating more of my sites, working on my costumes, and playing a ton of video games, haha.

Ohhhhh 3 months off from my life. WHERE do I begin! I would definitely travel – first off to all the adventure places and then I would spend like 3 weeks on a deserted tropical paradise where there was no contact with the world. Maybe with a man so I can have unlimited sex or maybe by myself. Gosh….

Wait, was this meant to be realistic? 😛

I went back and read your 25 before 25 list and it’s pretty impressive! Maybe you should do an update on the things you have already done for us? 🙂 I would love to see how far you have come!

I think we all deserve a three month break from our lives at least sometime. That’s why universities have four-month summers, though the only break from my life I got during that was my three week trip to Beijing. If I actually had a three month break from life for some reason, I would pack my bags and go to Hong Kong. And from there, if put cheesily, do what my heart makes me.

Perhaps you should try taking a short vacation, it can easy worry and stress quite well. 🙂

A 3 month vacation from my life? Do I have unlimited funds? I’d just try and experience things I’ve never experienced (mostly because of lack of funds). That means a lot of traveling and enjoying the finer things in life. But without funds, I guess probably just do a roadtrip or something similar and just savage for survival… Basically anything that just involves traveling haha

Being free of worries would be nice! 🙂

Ahhh if you could do all of those things in 3 months, that’d be a really productive span of time in your life though! haha. Buying a DSLR wouldn’t take long, but writing books & publishing them, well those are feats that take years. But you always have to remember that even if you have an expensive professional DSLR & not an entry-level one, the pictures are great because you know how to use the camera & not because the camera is great. It’s part of it, but I’ve definitely seen some atrocious looking pictures with very professional, top tier cameras, just because the photographer has no idea wtf they’re doing.

Also, your mental problems, whatever they are, can be solved! I’m sure of it! You just have to take a breather every once & a while & not be paranoid about things you can’t control. Why freak out over these things if you can’t do anything to change it? Just focus on changing what you can to make things better for you & hopefully for everyone else around you too. Seeing a professional can help too, or, just typing out alllllll of your little worries & feelings into a document stored on your computer (password protected!!) to get it all out. Then you can just read it later & see if you were being over dramatic or if you were justified!

I hope that you’ll get such a vacation at some point! I kinda sorta not really got a two-month vacation that was more-or-less mostly wasted last summer. If you do choose to continue college again sometime, the trick is to do it right before and/or right after. Or, if you’re relocating for a job and have enough savings, start the new job a bit later than you would otherwise.

If I had such a vacation, though, I’d spend most of my time finishing up things in my bucket list, doing karate, and studying Chinese. Going three months without doing math sounds quite scary to me, though!
