That Would Be Awesome

So I was dreaming last night, as one generally does when they sleep for long enough to enter REM sleep. Which for me actually seems like an achievement sometimes. Anyway I was dreaming and it was a pretty good one for once, if not a little odd.

See I was dreaming that I was part of an education program that involved study abroad. In Japan to be exact. That's where it gets a little odd because I've not harbored dreams of living in Japan (not seriously anyway) for a while now. My subconscious appears to be out of sync with my conscious.

Either way though it would be pretty awesome to just live abroad for a few months. It was six months I would have been there in the dream. The same way that some rich and posh university kids take gap years and travel the world. Although to be honest I'm not too fond of people like that. It's nice they're going around helping people but very few of them ever do anything about it when they get home, and most do it for their own gratification.

There are one of two things you need to go live abroad for no good reason though, and even for good ones actually; you need either support or money. Frankly I have neither. Definitely not in the levels I would need them to be. So for now something like that remains a pipe dream. Or an actual dream, which is what it actually was.

I need to publish a second book, get rich off it, then just go travel the world for no good reason. I could even turn it into another book but it would end up being like my blog; "Nothing happened today, so instead here's some random stuff. Oh look, a kitty cat."

A girl can dream.

  2. Luckily the Navy let me live abroad.
    The only problem? They wouldn't let me come home when I got tired of it.

  3. I went abroad for vacation 5 years ago and stayed with a host family and it was still so expensive. I can't even imagine how much it costs to live abroad, even just for 6 months.

  4. Personally, I would not want to live abroad. If I had to travel it would only be any fun if I had an entourage to help me figure out where the hell I was going, and where to find Diet Pepsi, Excedrin, and Doritos in strange foreign lands. Or maybe my entourage could carry the diet pepsi and doritos around in brief cases for me, or something like that.

  5. Sometimes my subconscious has done this before man. Like I've had a crush on a girl and then I've dreamed about being with a different girl, strange but I guess we can't control our dreams. I'd love you to get the opportunity to travel somewhere different for a while even if your book about it was poor, we both need and deserve a break away in my opinion.

  7. Hey, if you want your dreams interpreted, you should visit my Blog. Oh wait, you already do. And you've already analyzed your own dream. Well, aren't you the clever one?!

    If you go abroad take me with you. I can speak/make up the local dialect and I know how to turn squirrels into food if times get hard.

  9. I have never been abroad but I've always wanted to go!! I am a big believer than our dreams are sometimes speaking to us - perhaps you dreamed these things for a reason.

  10. I've never left the U.S. (except Canada for 2 days) so I too wouldn't mind traveling. I really want to go to New Zealand or the countryside of China. Both look like beautiful destinations.
