A list

Life has been a little bit topsy-turvy lately, and not in a good way.  
But, that's the way life is, isn't it?  Sometimes you have to trudge through the not-so-good parts in order to be thankful and recognize the good ones for what they are. 
So, I find myself in one of those funks where I'm restless and aching to do something spontaneous, or shake things up, and in order to put those desires into words, I give you....
a wish list of things that are on my mind at the moment.

1.  I want to do some traveling.  I don't really care where, preferably somewhere new.
2.  I'd love a new camera.  I've outgrown mine.  I have my eye on a Nikon D-7000.  I'd also love a 50mm lens.  They produce such pretty images.
3.  If I could drive any car, it would be a VW Jetta.  I've always loved VW's, and I probably always will.
4.  I want an apartment of my own.  I like living at home, and it certainly is fiscally responsible, but I miss having the freedom & grown-up feeling that living on your own provides.
5.  I want my nose pierced.
6.  I want to spend a day in NYC, or DC, or any city, really.  Going to outdoor markets, spending a day lounging in a park...doesn't it sound perfect?
7.  I want a feather extension.  Don't know what that is?  Check 'em out here!
8.  I want to make a difference.  I want to be a part of something bigger than myself, some project or cause that matters.  
9.  I want to be challenged.  I was hoping grad school could fill this void.  Maybe it's just the fact that it's summer, but I don't feel like I'm learning very much in my class right now.  I want heated debates about the state of education!  I want rousing articles and thought-provoking lectures!  Instead, I've learned that Descartes struggled with poor health and influenced modern-day education.  
10.  I want an adventure.

Thanks for listening to me rant and ramble.
What's on your wish list at the moment?


  1. 1 & 6- why not pop down to Philadelphia? I spent time there on jury duty and enjoyed pretending I wasn't a visitor.

    7. I love these! I would do that. Lydia would probably tell me I'm too old though.

    9. Graduate courses in education will not give you this :( Sorry. It might happen if you were at a larger university, but most masters level classes are just more of the same.

    10. I'm 42 years old and I still am waiting for that longing to go away.

  2. argh. sorry to hear about the not-so-stimulating grad classes :/ what gives? weird.

    i hear boston is really nice this time of year... no? yes. get up here.

    tony's new gf has a feather extension! but that video features papyrus font. boycott.

    piercing of the schnoz, eh? :)

  3. sooooo if you were to get a new camera...
    what would you do with your old camera... ?

    pretty soon you can adventure your way up way for a certain wedding... and you are totally welcome to stay with me! Maybe we'll have time for a visit to Boston too!

  4. you have such nice friends Betsy. I am glad that you made relationships at Gordon that will last a lifetime.
    And oh you are my daughter...always ready for an adventure.
    You know I am not even offended by the desire for your own place, but be fiscally responsible a little longer...it will pay off in the end....besides it isn't so bad at 23 Petsch Rd, now is it?
