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?

I never cease to be amazed by how creative people can be. Check out this video made by Red Paper Heart for one of their clients, UrbanDaddy. It’s awesome.
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.
