But I think it will be a pleasurable road to go down, if God so wills.
Step 1: Buy a camera! I’m waiting until my 21st birthday next month, as a gift to myself. :)
... I want to expand my knowledge. This list is more of a reminder to myself.
1: Learn more about ancient history. Especially about Africa (specifically the Horn of Africa). I’ve learned a lot about this over the years but I want more knowledge!
2: About Somali language, the history of the language, poetry, country, and governments. Again, I know quite a bit already but I’d like more.
3: About my ancestors. It’s a tradition to be able to name more than 30 paternal ancestors, so let’s see if I can do more than that! I’d like to know more of their stories and lives from elders.
4: Learn about global politics, history, and economy. I’m clueless about the economy, its trends, and global politics. That way, I can better understand the true reasons behind current events that I hear or read about in the news.
5: Learn more about people – through psychology. After all, (I think) I want to become a child psychologist.
Over the years, I’ve learned to cook many foods, especially cultural foods like sambuus, buur, injera, goat meat, and others for pleasure like different kinds of cakes, muffins, interesting dinner dishes, etc. I’d just like to find some really easy and great foods to make for a good daily variety (that doesn’t take forever to make, like sambuus), and I’ll be set! :)
