Reunion letter

I have been exiled from the land of blogging for almost 3 weeks now and today was my day of release! hooray!

In the spirit of Alannis Morrisette's 'You Live You Learn' philosophy, here is what I have taken away from my time away from all you wonderful people whose lives have added colour to my world. A life without blogging is really not much of a life at all. There's nothing I enjoy more than stepping out of my mundane life and mind and stepping into another world that has smarter thoughts and gazes upon things of more beauty than I ever thought possible...

I have missed you terribly and I trust that we will never be seperated again...

My Dreams

So in the spirit of visualising things into life, this is my first official step towards getting the things that I want for my future... I was really sad the other day, thinking that I will never be able to get the things that I would like purely because I want them and a friend of mine said, in true guy style; " Go for what you want and don't stop until you get it." It's that simple really! so here goes nothing... I'm officailly putting it down on (virtual) paper for the whole world to see. I would like:

A better job
Don't get me wrong, I am so very grateful for the job that I have now. I have learned so much about my capabilities and I've come to realise that I have been selling myself short in terms of what I deserve. But now I'm ready to be challenged and stretched even more. I'm starting to feel like I'm playing in a puddle when I could be swimming in the ocean; like  the begining of the rest of my life is being hindered by my not getting a better job.

My own place
 I live at home which is a great advantage, because I dont pay rent, nor do I have any other finacial obligations besides the ones that are self inflicted. I believe that  where you reside is also the place where you can express yourself. I want to decorate my own flat, get throw pillows that match the couch ( or whatever flat owners do.)

A car
This one is a recent addition though it has been a growing frustration over the past few months. I'm single and very set in my ways. I like doing what I want when I want to do it e.g When I go out with friends, I can't go home when I want because, often the driver is not ready to leave yet. Little frustrations like that. I know that owning a vehicle is alot of responsibility and comes with it's own frustrations, but like  I said, I'm ready to stretch myself, to do new grown up things I always thought were out of my league.

So there you have it! I've set my ( short term?) goals! they're out there for the world to see... Now comest he part where I go out and make them a reality.....
