K-Town Saturday Ramblings

I have always thought that life is so interesting in the fact that you never know where it will take you. I’ve also always been a firm believer in the Beatle’s lyric “there’s no where you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.” A more poetic way to say, “Everything happens for a reason.”

That’s why nothing is ever too stressful for me. I mean, I do have a cray cray guilt bone, but in the end I always tell myself that things are suppose to be like this. I should also mention that this statement has held true because nothing too terrible has ever happened to me. The worst thing was probably a broken heart.  I’ve never been through any extreme tragedies to defunct this thought where I’m left thinking, “you know what, fuck this. This isn’t how it’s suppose to happen.” (Except I occasionally think that when there are news covered tragedies born from hate.)

I think there is a reason I’m here in Germany right now having this life and going down this path. No, I don’t know what this reason is, but having a feeling that it’s “right” gets me through each day. 

I mean, there are days where I feel wildly unproductive and anxious about my future. Especially since I have 5 best friends who are 5 of the biggest badasses I know to compare myself to. Not that it’s a competition, but I’m thankful for them.

I’m thankful that they are so awesome and motivated and independent and successful and the list goes on and on. But it gives an unemployed girl in a foreign country with a diminishing savings account and no job prospects something to look up to. Role Models if you will. They come from 5 backgrounds and have taken 5 completely different paths but are making the most out of those paths and kicking those paths’ ass everyday. So it challenges me to do the same in my situation despite the challenges standing in my way. So, I would just like to take a moment to thank them.

I realize that this went from a random ramble to a love letter to my besties, but I’m ok with that, because if being across the world from them has taught me anything; it’s realizing how much I appreciate them and how much I (clearly) needed to tell them- in a very public way I might add.

So thanks ladies and cheers to doing the damn thing. 

This is not a picture of them. I don't know who those women are. But if they
were my friends, they would be laughing like that, but would be far more
stylish and have a round of drinks in front of them. I don't have a picture of
them all together. I know... it's shameful. 


  1. I love you...and you are a complete and total badass yourself!

  2. Agreed Kelly! Sweet post Melissa, and how is it possible that we don't have a picture all together!? Goodness we need to change that - Christmas surprise trip to Dayton anyone? ;)

    xo to my badass, risk taking, independent bestie who is a constant reminder and inspiration to jump into the opportunities life presents!

    1. Thanks Shannon! And seriously about the picture!
