I’m still traveling so this is just a tiny, little bonus post, friends.
It was FAN-tastic getting to know so many of you in the first ever Chai Talk post on the blog last month (and yes, I am very accepting of alternative beverages so bring your choice of fluids. Light snacks are also allowed/appreciated).
This month, I thought we should indulge in some fantasy. Particularly since I am traveling and when you’re traveling, real life doesn’t exist. So here’s what I want to know.
What would your ideal, dream life + job be? If you had the choice to do ANYTHING you wanted to do, what life and what job would you pick?
For myself, I’ve been super clear on this since about a year now. My ideal life would be to have a house in a slightly (very slightly) detached-from-the-city location. Not too far, so I could commute there in about an hour for processed cookies and the cinema perhaps. But far enough to be able to say ‘Oh, I’m just going into the city to pick up a Starbucks’.
I’d love to have enough property to grow my own food. The basics, nothing too fancy. N could run a tiny little online business doing geek stuff (he thrives on it, it’s unreal). I’d continue to run my blog and despite the city-disconnect, have enough brands on board to make a tiny, decent income (for the basics like medical insurance, family support, eyebrow maintenance). Perhaps make some natural skincare products as a hobby and sell local. Workout in the open in the mornings, read books in the evening. Cook together, grow old together. Also, have wifi.
N and I have both talked this at length and we’d LOVEEEE to do this one day. God, I hope you’re listening.
What would you want to have? Can be as fast-paced or as snail-like as mine. Let’s go. I’m dying to hear.
