I am. I will.

“Everything is created from moment to moment, always new. Like fireworks, this universe is a celebration & you are the spectator contemplating the eternal Fourth of July of your absolute splendor.”(Francis Lucille) here

I tend to forget that sometimes, and I get carried away; the mundane-ness that is my life. I am quirkiness incarnated in the short body of a girl with hazel eyes and caramel coloured skin, and cappuccino coloured hair. Yet, with all the warm tones, my feet are almost always cold. And so do my hands. I laugh, and I giggle and I smile. And you can sometimes hear the child in me echo through one of my loud, silly giggles. Or maybe more than "sometimes"...

This is who I am.

I am a girl.

I will wear that pettiskirt under my A-line dress and walk down the street, I will be cut from the 1950s and pasted on to the street in 2010. And it will be glorious.

I will walk stop at a street corner cafe in Paris for a coffee to warm me up. And it will be divine. I will also have Paris vs. NYC posters hanging on the walls of my apartment.

I will watch the sun rise setting fire to the Red Sea, in Sinai, wrapped in arms I have grown to love so much. And have the very same arms keep me warm on the streets of London.

Yet, for now, I shall go read about Argentina for my term paper. And when this semester is over with, I will have finished half of my classes. And I can't begin to explain how great that feels. I need to start saving up, because after I am done, I plan to travel. And start a whole new life.

Who are you? and what are your "will be"s?

I love this post and I share similar thoughts to you at this point in my life.

I am a lady, a wife, a daughter, a friend. I will make my dreams realities, and I will not let other people get me down.
