I’ve been having a lot of restless nights lately. I go to bed tired, but then I lie in bed wide awake. An anxious feeling consumes me. I am excited, nervous, scared shitless. Up until now, life has been a single staircase and I just took steps. But now, as I’m preparing to graduate college, I take my final step. But my final step to where? It doesn’t just stop. I see doors, I see another set of stairs, and another and another, I see slides and I see bikes and I see planes that can take me everywhere. I don’t know what I want to do or where I want to go and that terrifies me. I thought college was supposed to be the step I took to get to the step where I knew what the rest of my life would look like. But here I am, up at 2 am thinking about all the possibilities–and all the consequences. I guess that’s a beautiful thing though, right? This panic that I am so privileged to have? I get to dream about a world filled with opportunities and challenges, but soon I will be apart of it. It will be chaotic and messy, but an adventure all my own. This uncertainty is unsettling, but then again if I was completely certain what sort of nights would I have? What sort of dreams would I dream?
Let me start off by saying that I absolutely adore my Hello Kitty onesie ..But, I’d just like to list a couple of things that I think should be standard on every onesie sold (and I think all the other onesie-wearers out there will agree):
- The Butt Flap (and maybe a convenient front opening as well)- Button close or zipper, it doesn’t matter as long as it’s there. There’s nothing worse than having to get totally naked on a really cold night just to use the bathroom.
- Removable Feet- Sometimes my feet are cold, but then other times my feet are ridiculously hot. I’d like to have the option to remove the feet on a onesie if I felt like it. I think the easiest way to achieve this would be to have the fleece feet attached by zipper, or elastic, or maybe just turn them into a separate sock-slipper sort of thing??!
- A Hood- Well, just because, why not? It’s nice to be wrapped up from head to toe, and let’s be honest, a hood would just make the transition from pajama to real-life cocoon that much easier.
Other than that, the onesie is as close to perfection as PJ’s get. I mean if they were acceptable to wear in public, I probably would.
