BIG LIFE GOALS (and updates)
1. Career -
A) I’ve enjoyed blogging very much up to this point. And I was thinking how I’d like to start a travel blog once I have enough money to actually travel. And then I thought…what if someone paid me to write a travel blog?! Paid to travel! That would be the perfect job. And I’d be good at it, too. Writing is something I CAN DO.
It’s funny how when you make statements like this, how things in your life start to change in ways that seem to be leading you in that direction. Since I made this statement, my job description at work has broadened to include “blog editor.” I also write occasional press releases and have decided to start writing my own stuff to contribute to this fitness blog, too, in an effort to develop a writing portfolio. Additionally, this is the first time I remember ever feeling satisfied in a position. I love how dynamic my work environment is. No day is the same. That is what I always hated about other jobs—the redundancy.
B) The other option here is to find a job where I can work from home - or anywhere. So that I can work on the road or in another country, even. Be a nomad if I want to. The idea here is freedom - not being chained to a desk. Being able to do whatever the hell I want with my time as long as I get the job done. C’mon, synchronicity, bring me what I want, even if I don’t know how to obtain it!
I have this little dream that if and when I decide to move away from here that perhaps my employer will value me so much as an employee that they’d let me telecommute. :D *planting a seed, adding water, hoping it will grow*
2. Location - I’ve moved all over this state and never felt “Finally, this is where I belong.” I’d like to move to a city that feels like home. Last winter was awful and I was determined to move somewhere warmer. Now, though, I’m more interested in being near like-minded people in a place where the options for entertainment are nearly limitless. Chicago, maybe? Denver? St. Louis? Boston? Ultimately, I’ll probably end up in Colorado. I’ve loved that place for so long…
