The latest from The Unconventional Newlywed…
Lest it is unclear from the last post, despite the pride I hold my fluctuating lifestyle, I am still human. A normal, American human. Therefore, I am desperately seeking a life of stability filled with money and lots of shiny things I bought on credit.
Or, just the stability part. That’s what all this work is for, after all.
In fact, on days when the life in flux is particularly draining and I feel my motivation waning, I, in the spirit of American tradition, turn to online porn to boost my spirits.
Cabin porn, that is. A glimpse of the tranquil life ideal. Try it for yourself; check out the window panes on this feisty Icelandic:
|Doesn’t the mere look at her make your heart skip a beat?|
I like to look at these beauties and imagine that all this work of graduate schooling, city apartment living and part-time latte making is saving up my cabin life karma.
|One must earn her way into a home like this.|
Cabin life karma is the kind of magic that works like elves building Alex and me a wee lil cabin in some obscure land where all these communication skills will be for naught.
|Note all the books inside. Cabins are very productive places, you see.|
Okay, not for naught. I can write books or manage some fine company’s social media and public relations remotely. Yes, I assume this far-off land of my dreams has high-speed WiFi.
|This is where I shall learn to be a real, homesteading wife…eh, maybe.|
Given a few hours of cabin porning, I’ll emerge – dazed, dreamy and yearning for adventure – to discover a bit more motivation has gathered within me…and back to the textbooks I go.
For now, this unconventional life is adventure enough.
