weather change

Posted: September 14th, 2012 | No Comments »

weather changed today, huge noisy thunderstorm last night, made it damp and chilly out, halloweeny, which reminds me how great fall is, fall foliage, cool air, halloween, spookiness, and all day long i wanted to knock stuff over and admire my pseudo breathless outfit (wranglers, leather jacket, high tops, striped tee that ross cut so that it’s basically just two flaps of fabric held together by a neck) and now blasting “wrecking ball” and “everybody knows this is nowhere” on repeat and folding clothes and painting my nails and continuing to admire my outfit. read this advice column and well, actually, here’s the quote/spirit that i loved, why not treat even settled life this way:

You need to do these things with a sense of urgency. Why? Because you’re not staying there, that’s obvious. Los Angeles is a temporary situation for you, so live like it is.

Live every day like it might be one of your last in Los Angeles.

When I was in Los Angeles, I knew it was temporary, and yet I didn’t act it. I lived like I lived there. You should live like you’re on a working vacation. Yes you have a job to go to. But weekends and night should not be about establishing roots, getting into a routine, or relaxing with leftovers in front of the TV.

Because you’re leaving soon!

How soon, how knows? Maybe days, maybe months, maybe years, but you are leaving. Which means there are a lot of things you need to do before you leave.
