Remember when you were a kid and you were carefree to dream? You would have these crazy ideas of wanting to fly, getting a Hogwart’s invitation or maybe as simple as having a remote controlled car or a doll house for your Barbie. Well mine was pretty much on the same line.
One of my childhood wishes was experiencing snow. I live in a tropical island, giving my country only 2 types of seasons - sunny and rainy. Never in my entire life have I experienced snow. I’ve seen it once when I was 17 years old when we went to Italy (somewhere in the borderline of Switzerland). It snows in that area occasionally and it was very unfortunate for us to plan on going there in the morning when we found out that it snowed the night before. At least I saw 2 to 3 small piles of melting snow around, right? I always imagine myself making snow angels and playing snow ball fights, just like in cartoons or in the movies. I always envision snowy fields to be an excitement, an adventure, nothing but bliss. I’ve been waiting to see snow for 20 years now… I thought I’d be seeing it very soon…but I guess I was wrong.
I’m not angry just disappointed. I am going to Switzerland for the weekend. Switzerland isn’t just a country to me, it’s one of the countries I am looking forward to going to in Europe - top of the list! My one and only goal in Switzerland is to experience snow, but I guess the world doesn’t want me to just yet. Again, I’m not angry, just disappointed for I thought that I will finally, after 20 years, tick of an item from my bucket list. I thought I can finally make snow angels, throw snow balls and run in snowy fields as if the cold air isn’t making my breathing lethargic. I guess I have to wait for a few more years for me to make that dream come true…
Maybe…it’s better not to expect anything, better not to have anything on hand - to have a plan - to avoid getting your hopes up for nothing.
I HATE IT WHEN ANYONE ANSWERS ME LIKE IT HAS ALREADY ENDED - LIKE THERE’S NOTHING ELSE YOU CAN DO. THERE IS A SOLUTION AND THERE ALWAYS WILL BE. DON’T TALK TO ME AS IF EVERYTHING HAS COME TO A CLOSE.
