Leaves In The River

While I read movie scripts, I’m usually looking for a main character that is proactive – that is, someone who leads the actions rather than just reacts to things. To do the same in life, however, is another matter. If they made a movie about my life, I would be criticized as a “passive protagonist”, because I tend to go with the flow. I think the only time I made a big decision is when I went to film school; everything after that just sort of… happened. Things didn’t exactly fall into my lap, but I didn’t actively make them happen either. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or not – on the one hand, you shouldn’t go through life aimlessly; on the other hand, having no fixed goal means that you’re more flexible when something unexpected happens.

When I’m in the middle of something – school, internship – this attitude makes me confident that I’m always ready for the next thing, whatever it is, but right now, when I’m in an “in-between” period of my life, it makes me feel particularly unproductive and restless. It really is like being a leaf in a river.

All this sounds more negative than I intended. It’s just been a sloooooooow day.

    I know that feeling, like you’re treading water and just waiting for the next big move.

    Well, you look adorable! Love the skirt and belt together.

  2. I can understand you completely. I am trying to get myself set goals and work on achieving them singlemindedly.
    My problem is that I have lots of dreams but lack concentration.

    Your outfit is so simple but elegant. Bracelet, belt and shoes add such interesting details. Love the background too. So serene.
