Step 15: Dream about the Future

Dear Internet,

As you may or may not know, I am graduating college this spring. That's right folks, I am going to be a grown up lady with a big girl job and everything. It's gonna be SWEEEEEEET!

There are a lot of things I am looking forward to in the next year (getting an apartment, buying a kitten without asking my mom and dad first, rolling in piles of my freshly earned money like Scrooge McDuck), but most of all I yearn for the simple pleasures of adult life.

I have a dream. That dream is to have a coffee table with coasters on it. Coasters are the most tranquil objects I can think of because water marks on furniture is the kind of thing that worries people who've run out of important things to worry about. Coasters are for new grads and retirees; carefree people who have nothing to worry about except unplanned pregnancies and death (respectively).

Alas, I still have a semester left before I reach this benchmark of adulthood, but the thought of my coasters keeps my motivation up. After all, if I don't get good grades, how will I get a good job to earn the money to pay for the rent for the apartment with the living room in which to put the table with the coasters on it. Wouldn't happen.

That's why the lesson today is to follow your dreams. Follow them all the way to your own coffee table with coasters on it.

xoxo Hannah

  1. What a beautiful dream! And so grown-up, too! You have my full support in keeping the coffee and end tables of this world free of embarrassing water marks. "Let's keep the watermarks where they belong: on our currency!"
