Goals back in high school

10 06 2013

While I was cleaning earlier today, I came across my old agenda from high school. Most of it was boring crap about assignments, but every so often, I answered the philosophical questions posed by the makers of the agenda, usually in some sort of angsty way.

One was about goals and being driven to do stuff. The question they ask is “Did you record a goal last month? Great, have you started moving on it yet? No? Then it’s time to create a game plan. Write in your baby steps here:”

Here’s what I wrote.

1. Get money.

2. Go to a store.

3. Buy a new life.

4. Apply liberally.

5. Enjoy the outstanding effects!

Oh, how witty my 17 year old self was.





I want to be so much

but there’s such little time.  Or perhaps it’s the feeling of wanting to do so much — excitement — that paradoxically creates a feeling of helplessness, of not knowing where to start.

Resignation.

But I’m better than that.

First things first: need more frozen yogurt.
