Apparently Cascada is playing July 19th a mere 3.5 hours away from where I currently live.



Marriage is overrated.

Wait, that sounded really jaded. What I meant to say, was that I'm not sure I want the traditional marriage ideal.. the whole engagement and wedding, with the rings, and the dress, and the cake, and church and reception..

Here's what I picture:
Replace the engagement ring and the huge wedding dress with a plane ticket and a sundress. Let's get the legal documents, so we're legally "married", and spend the pesos on a trip. The way I see it, if I'm going to commit to a long term relationship with someone, we're both going to know it, and if we're focused on the right things, so will everyone around us.. we don't need the rings and the ceremony to prove it. Those are just cultural.

That being said, I'm not sure my family would be very pleased with me. Where is the line between fulfilling familial obligations and loving your family, while foraging a path out on your own as an adult? At this point in my life, I'm pretty self-centered, and that is a line I keep tripping back and forth over.

All around me, people my age keep getting engaged. That is a scary thought.. I can't figure out what to wear tomorrow and what to do on the weekend, let alone commit to someone for the rest of my life.. I mean, I would love to meet someone to spend my life with, but (thankfully?) I'm not worried about that now..

..what am I going to wear tomorrow?
