I don’t see myself living “that” life. You know the one, it involves a big house, white picket fence, and an SUV…a husband who works a 9-5, comes home and interacts with the children. Then the kids get sent to bed, some TV watching happens, then the parents themselves go to bed, only to repeat the same process again and again. With the only outlet being the ray of light that the upcoming weekend offers. Not knocking you if that’s your life. I just don’t see that for myself.
I’ll take a nice apartment in a high-rise, overlooking Central Park or the Hudson River. Or an apt in some other big city, even in a different country. I’ll take a husband who is creative (and makes a living from it) and some out of the box kids. The point is I don’t want routine or the norm. I want every experience to be completely different and new from what I currently see and know.
