change of plans

so after numerous discussions with my mother, i think what i’m going to end up doing is take a semester or more off from school next year and spend a prolonged period of time in new zealand, australia, fiji, hawaii, and who knows where else. that way i can fine tune my itinerary and i won’t be limited by time or season.

Let my Hair Grow long
So far so good

The last time I had my hair cut was in August of ‘07. It’s grown more than 3” in 6 months which isn’t so bad. I always get the urge to cut it all off though, which makes this very difficult to achieve. My goal is to let it grow as long as I can until I move back to Chicago at the end of the summer. Then I’ll be cutting it all off as a symbol of starting over again. Hopefully I can beat the heat :)

airplane ticket

I’m close to having enough money to buy my plane ticket, which I think will solidify things a bit. Assuming prices don’t jump to ridiculous rates I’ll be able to afford it by mid March.

Hooray for actually getting things done!

make a list of quotes that inspire me
"A fine quotation is a diamond in the hand of a man of wit and a pebble in the hand of a fool"

one of my favorite things to do is collect quotes and file them away for special occasions like writing letters or birthday cards.
the best website i’ve found is because you can compile and organize all your favorites on the site. it’s quite useful.

ride an elephant

riding an elephant was definitely one of the coolest things i’ve ever done. if the opportunity ever presents itself, don’t hesitate!

take a photography class
the first time is all it takes

my first photo class was in 6th grade. although i didnt know it at the time, that class was the reason i decided to become a photographer and to go to art school. taking an art class, be it photo or not, can open doors you didnt know existed.

drink tea every day
cup o' joy

it’s not only relaxing but incredibly delicious. tea is the best companion for quiet contemplation.

go out for sushi
tasty little fishies

i go out for sushi quite frequently, and even though it can end up being a little on the expensive side it’s always worth the time and money. not to mention it’s delicious and yummy!! _
