Wanderlust

I have an incurable case of wanderlust today.

I woke up at 6:30am, without an alarm, to thoughts of being in the Virgin Islands. Dreams of palm trees and white sand beaches. Tropical fish, sailing, and painkiller drinks. I could smell the sea and the feel the breeze and the warmth of the air.

Why am I tortured with these thoughts? What brings them on? Why is it appealing?  Why don't I dream of a normal life, the standard American dream with a house, wife, kids and dog? The kind of life with vacations to tropical places and an exciting home life with friends and lots of fun activities.

Why is an engineering career not appealing?

What am I supposed to do?
