My first post in my new digs… I’ve been trying to find time or inspiration to post here for a couple of weeks now. And now that I’ve found at least the inspiration (if not really the time since I should be working right now) I’m going to be selfish for a moment and talk about things I want. I’ve got two more days before I have to be thankful, and most of these are good, non-material things and I think it’ll be fun to look back on this list and see what I’ve achieved.

I want to be a better blogger.
I want to be able to write posts like the ones I’m inspired by.
I want to be a better writer in general.
I want to draw.
I want to paint.
I want to get my eating issues under control.
I want my weight to be <170lbs.
I want a better paying job.
I want better clothes.
I want my cat to be healthy.
I want my house to be consistently clean.
I want to establish and keep a routine.
I want to run.
I want to do a triathlon.
I want to get rid of all the boxes and extra junk in my house.
I want a boyfriend.
I want mouthwash that doesn’t hurt my tongue.
I want it to rain.
I want to yell at my brother in law.
I want skater pants.
I want a dog.

I won’t do anything about some of these wants. I’ll work my ass off on others. And some are momentary and fleeting and I won’t want them tomorrow. But at least now they’re out and I can reflect on them later, but maybe now they can be out of my brain and I can get some work done.

    Yay! Love that you’re posting again. I like lists like this. Like you said, even if some never materialize, it’s nice to clean the brain out. Get it said. Have someone hear you.

    What are skater pants?

    Skater pants are pants that skaters wear. 😉

    In hockey, there are skaters and goalies. I’m a skater. But I wear goalie pants because they do not make skater pants that fit me. Goalie pants are padded differently than skater pants, and I’m tired of them. I want skater pants.

    Go after your list. There is no time like the present. I feel like I’ve started after my list now and if I died tomorrow I would do so at a really happy place, having accomplished a good chunk of the things I wanted to do in this life. I didn’t feel this way a few years ago. It took some conscious decision-making and effort

    Good luck! I hope I can help you with your list. You can have all of my rain.
