…is probably what you are wondering right now. If you’re not obligated to support me because I am your spawn (love you ma!), or one of my wonderful friends who puts up with my rants on a regular basis, I have no f-ing idea. But I hope you enjoy your visit, and feel free to leave a comment with your goals/bucket lists, I’d love to hear them!
A few years ago I read an article where a woman posted a list of 50 things she would like to accomplish before she turned 50. Since I am nowhere near 50 and need short deadlines to be productive I created a list of 25 things to accomplish before I turned 25. *spoiler alert* I didn’t finish it. But I did do a lot of sweet things.
Here’s a few things that I DID accomplish:
1. crochet a scarf
an infinity scarf to be specific. I followed a couple youtube videos like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWw8DtvnxRg it was quite simple. It helped that the power was out for 10 days thanks to Hurricane Sandy (that bitch) so I had nothing else to do.
**pretend a picture of my scarf is here, I can’t find it at the moment**
2. practice my japanese (I even went to visit!)
Ok, this is kind of cheating. I minored in Japanese in college, so it was kind of a given. But I wanted to practice in a real life situation, outside the classroom… and not just ordering sushi. So I went to Japan and talked to people there. I think they were impressed, or at least amused.
(Me in Japan with American and Japanese friends)
3. get a big-girl job (something needs to fund all of my endeavors)
Applied for 100, heard back from 1, and it happened to be *the one*. I work with little thugs, but its not so bad.
4. become a certified personal trainer
This will be a recurring topic, I will not bore you with details at the moment. I love getting people excited about exercise, its fun.
5. read the bible
This will also probably be discussed in its own post. I am not overly religious, nor do I have any intentions of pushing my beliefs on others, but I strongly believe that everyone in today’s society should have- at minimum- a basic understanding of world religions. We are considered a “global community” these days, and if you like to travel (like I do) and don’t want to look like a total dumbass, you should probably be able to discuss religion intelligently. I started with reading the bible because I was raised Catholic. I would also like to study the Quran, Torah, and other religions, at least to get a basic understanding. Enough to be able to respect other cultures and understand their point of view.
What are some the goals you have set for yourself?
