(“Random thoughts for Valentine’s Day, 2004…… Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap. Sand is overrated. It’s just tiny little rocks.” Name that movie!)

I’m turning into a hippie. My hair is getting longer and longer. I’m learning to play the guitar. I make my own jewelry. I burn incense. I can’t remember who it was, but someone once told me that if I had to be stereotyped, I’d be a hippie. I thought they were crazy then, but now I see what they mean. It’s not a bad thing, just an observation.

I can’t bring myself to go back to school. If I go back to school, I’ll just be getting a degree to get a good job. And then I’d just work all the time. Right now I’m just working all the time. There’s not much difference, except that my job right now doesn’t require a degree, it pays less than if I had a degree, and isn’t really that great of a job. But I like it anyway. I could find a good job that pays better without a degree if I really wanted to. I don’t really need a degree to work lots.

It’s my half birthday today. I should celebrate somehow. Maybe after work. Probably not.

I really want to get away. I’ve been wandering around the house, looking for my Delta dollars that I got on a trip last year. I need them to buy a ticket to Los Angeles and back so I can visit my sister. If I don’t get on a plane soon, I’ll go crazy. Every once in a while, I just have this desire to take off. I think it’s because up through junior high, my family was travelling a lot. Then when I got to high school, I went on a trip with the drama program or the choir program or whatever program at least 3 times a year. In the last year, I’ve gone to New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago. I haven’t gone on a trip since November, and I’m going crazy!

 I know four people getting married in May. Two on the same day.

That’s all.

Everyone has their life ambitions—Get a million dollars, have 12 kids, start a web-based company. These are things I want to accomplish before I die.

  • Be a Flight Attendant
  • Learn Gymnastics
  • Be a mechanic
  • Learn at least two other languages besides English
  • Travel. This requires a list in its own, of where I want to go.
  • Skydive
  • Learn how to sing
  • Live on the road, from my car.
  • Work on a cruise ship.
  • Try my hand at stand up comedy.
  • Go scuba diving. This includes getting over my fear of deep, dark water.
  • Be licensed to marry people. Like a priest, you know? I just think that’d be cool.
  • Break a bone.
  • Do something and not tell anyone about it.

That’s about it for now.  All these goals will, eventually, help me write a book. I’m hoping that by being really experienced, I can write about what I know. Plus, I can be super cool and say I’ve done all that stuff.
