I have been having some computer issues, I think this laptop is starting to take a turn for the worse. Which is not really a surprise as I think it is just about 6 years old, that is like 95 in human years! Anyways… This was my post from yesterday, edited just a tad. :-)

I love the way Katie Herzig belts these words… “I’m not even close to where I want to be”. I know this feeling so well it gets to be overwhelming at times… At one point I thought I would have kids by 30, I am almost 28 and not even married. But you know I look around at old friends from high school and some of them are married and already have kids and I know right now that is totally not where I want to be… I am not ready for kids, I still have so much I want to see and do. I want to travel, get my scuba license, adopt my own rescue dog and maybe even go to grad school.

I can relate to this song so well though and I love her for it, I love the emotion she puts into her music, the way in which she expresses so much passion in each and every one of her songs. She was recently featured on the Season Finale of Grey’s Anatomy with Matthew Perryman Jones, also highly recommended.

p.s. Check out the interview with Sam Mendes where he talks about the film Away We Go and how the movie is primarily about 2 people who are just getting their shit together in their thirties. Ain’t It Cool

    Oh lordy, don’t settle for less! I’m 45 and so glad I didn’t have kids when I wasn’t ready… realizing I’ll never be ready. They’re great for other people, and I love other people’s kids :) You gotta do your own life in your own time and fuck the conventions of whatever community you find yourself in! Yay you, for making your own path! (oh, and great tunes too!) xoxo
