So I’ve been thinking a lot about what I really want from my life. I currently have a few things down as long term goals.
Move to Vermont
When I tell people I want to move to Vermont, they ask me why. When I think about it, it just makes sense. Everyone I know from the state shares very similar mindsets to me and they’re all super nice.
It’s also very similar to New York in a lot of ways climate-wise. I enjoy the winters and summers here, but the lake-effect snow does often get boring.
I have also been into and through the state a few times and out of all the states I’ve been to, I’ve loved the atmosphere the most. It just feels right. Of coure, if I ever get an itch forNew York, it’s not really that hard to cross the border.
And as a kicker, I love maple syrup and trees.
Teach People in Some Way
I love to learn. I love to share what I learn with other people. I love when other people know more and have a thirst to know more. It’s only natural that I would want to share information with people.
If people learn from me because I’m a teacher or because I’m a well-followed blogger, I don’t care. I want to be the source of some kind of information to someone. I love the feeling I get when people tell me the didn’t know something until they talked to me.
Get Written Work Published
This is my main goal. I want to be featured somewhere that isn’t of my own creation. I want many people reading something I wrote and I want to have fans of some sort.
With this new project I’m working on with Bill Griggs (over at Maker Masters and other related sites), it seems a little closer than I originally imagined. It’s exciting to know that I may have one of my goals checked off so soon.
Of course, after I get published in some way, I will continue to do my writing because it’s what I love to do. It makes me happy and calms me down. that’s all the really matters to me. If it can help me pay the bills, the more power to it.
Because of my current project, I am deciding to organize my life a little better. I bought a nice note binder from Staples a couple weeks ago and today I finally got around to putting sections in. They currently are: ”Overall ‘To Do’s’,” “Life Plans,” “Reviews/Article Notes,” “Craft Ideas,” Video/Blog Ideas” (This will be covered in my next post), and “Shit I Want.”
There isn’t too much in the notebook right now, but what I do have in there should sprout to life more great things to come.
(EDIT : So It’s a good thing I now know that when I type in 6PM on the queue, it sends it one hour later. Good to know. Sorry for the spam)
