I always lived my life based on the “Live Your Dreams” motto or some extended form of that. Every moment from the time I knew there was another place than Colorado, my dream had been to move away and start a new life. When I explored America through the years I decided I wanted to move to California because it sounded so cool. But then I went to Hawaii and dreamed of living in a tropical vacation destination, a never-ending vacation sounded so perfect to me! But then my world grew bigger when I studied abroad in Rome, a country I new nothing of, not even the language. I learned my passion for different cultures and found people different than me so intriguing. So, my dream kept growing and growing in size. Then… the dream of Australia happened! It’s everything in one and suddenly it was a possibility in my mind because I dreamed of it! I flew here as fast as I could and found everything I’ve ever wanted: independence, tropical climate, different culture, accents, thrill-seeking adventures, living with people from almost every country of the world, living on a beach, working a beach-side café, and road-tripping with my best friends. My dream has been fulfilled! I am in my dream right now. Every day I wake up and think, “I love my life! I can’t wait to jump in the ocean today!” I run to the window and look at the bright turquoise ocean. This is everything I’ve dreamed of and more. But what happens when the dream is over. What happens when I wake up?
