Sometimes I Wish…

This post was inspired by a trending hashtag on Twitter. God help me. Here goes…

Sometimes I wish that all the ideas in my head flowed onto paper as freely as they do when I’m trying to sleep. When I sit down at the keyboard I sometimes feel writer’s block so strongly that I just walk away. But, why is it that when I lay down to sleep my head is so full of ideas bouncing off each other that I can’t fall asleep for sometimes hours?


Sometimes I wish that the Paleo diet included macaroni and cheese so I could eat it with my bacon every morning, not gain weight, and completely dismiss curious looks with a simple, “This is Paleo, our ancestors survived on it.”

You know Boston Market has the best macaroni and cheese ever!

Sometimes I wish our society was less technologically obsessed. I watched God Bless America the other day. While it features two semi-psychotic murderers, at times I understood their justification for eliminating people who are famous for being mean and profiting from the humiliation of others. It really made me take a hard look at myself to see what our culture has done to the minds of America.


Sometimes I wish plane tickets and college were less expensive. I think education and travel has become a luxury for the privileged, especially in this economy. Oh, what education and multi-cultural exposure would do for ignorant people.

Sometimes I wish I could speak absolutely everything that was on my mind. It would be such a relief to let go of things that might be insulting or rude, just for a day. I have a feeling I wouldn’t have very many friends at the end of that day.

Speak no evil.

Sometimes I wish the Philippines were closer so I could visit family I haven’t seen in over ten years. I miss you guys!

Sometimes I wish the judgments of other people didn’t hit me so harshly. I wish I was stronger and didn’t care what people thought about me or my life choices. I have no problem saying, “this is my choice and you don’t have to like it,” but in the lonely silence of the night, I do care, and it hurts.

Sometimes I wish I could have stayed a student forever. I loved the pressure of finishing a novel every week, discussing it, and producing thought provoking papers on it. I won’t lie, getting A’s totally made my day too!


Sometimes I wish my cats could talk, so I wouldn’t feel like such a nutcase asking them questions and pretending that certain winks or head movements meant “of course I missed you while you were out!

Sometimes I wish Twitter topics didn’t inspire me to write a little blog post. I refused to be on twitter for the longest time and my boyfriend forced me to start one when I made this blog. I still don’t love it, but I have to admit, this trending hashtag gave me some inspiration!

Aloha, and have an awesome Thursday! I leave you with a gorgeous view of Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.
