The Elusive Doll

Hello blog readers,

         I am the elusive doll, Skye. The only one of us who hasn't posted anything yet. But, I like to think that I have an excuse. I'm currently in the process of moving hundreds of miles away. A couple of weeks ago, I was chatting with the parentals about taking the next step in life. And, just to give you a little understanding of this situation, I've been talking about moving for years. It's always been my plan. But I realized, all I ever do is talk about it. And dream about it. Well, this time is different. I woke up with the intention of putting my "feelers" out there and seeing if it was a possibility. And at the end of our two hour conversation, I was determined. I wasn't going to wait and see if it was possible. I wanted to make it possible. So, I went to bed and the next morning I hopped on a bus and rode 6 hours to my new home. Taking with me my bare necessities, well almost. Hey, I am my mothers child.

          I arrived at my destination full of excitement and hope. This city was mine. Now, I just needed to figure out how to afford this city. Luckily, I wasn't alone. I had places to go. Couch surfing isn't exactly ideal for a gal like me (I like my own space) but it'll do for now. I started the hunt for a job. Any other day I would have despised the thought of job hunting. No one likes to do it. But nothing was going to ruin my mood. I wore my comfy shoes and set out on the city. A few days of that and I could say that I, literally, had been everywhere. Now, it's the waiting game. I don't like that game. I prefer Scrabble.

           A couple of days ago, I came back to my "original" home. Just to visit, don't worry. I left in such a rush that I left some things unfinished. I'm off to my "new" home tomorrow to finish what I've started. I know the idea of packing a bag and taking off sounds a little scary, unrealistic even. And, maybe it is. But, I live for adventure. And while some people wouldn't be able to not have a plan or be happy not knowing what's going to happen. I, on the other hand, love it. Embrace change and the idea that we don't always know.

          Since my mother and sister shared with you their new year resolutions, I'll do the same. Well, I'll do something similar. I don't subscribe to "new year resolutions." I guess you can call them "daily life goals." My first and main goal is my career. I am a photographer, most of these pictures you'll see on this blog are ones that I've taken. Not all, but a good majority. Like the image of Venice on our home page. That was an amazing time. But we'll save that for another day. I want to be a successful photographer, but keep in mind that success means different things to everyone. I may never make it big or be able to sell my pictures for thousands of dollars. But I'm doing what I love. That in itself is success. I want to travel. That goes hand in hand with photography for me. I want to see everything. And I want to capture it and let everyone else see what I see. I want to share the world through my photos. Those are my two goals. Everything else are just details. So, now you know a little more about me. I am a Wanderlust Doll, and it couldn't be more fitting.
