So, a funny thing happened on the way to grad school. I have spent the last ten months living across the street from a middle school. Everyday, I see the kids at recess and miss working in schools. To make a long and not-so-amusing story short, I've come to the realization that I belong in education. SO, back to La Crosse I go to continue on with this education process. The 7th Year Senior returns.
With that, I'm turning 30 next week! That's a big milestone, so I'm making it a month-long celebration. A month of reflecting on how far I've come, a month of enjoying where I am at, and a month of looking forward to hopefully another 30 years. Another 30 years of college... ? Maybe.
Today was day 1 on my journey to 30. Of course, I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather go everyday of my life than Barnes and Noble. I was pretty excited when I saw this sketchbook, so I bought it, along with a set of pencils. I'm not an artist by any means, but try to stop me.
In high school, I took a few art classes and loved drawing. I need to journal more, too. Journaling is fun. And, I do journal in sketchbooks. It has been a little over two years now since I ditched lined pages when it comes to writing. It's freedom at its finest.
Speaking of high school, I have a list of goals I had for myself from my senior year. There are quite a few things I didn't quite accomplish yet. Published Author is one of them. I will carry that one over into my thirties.
AND. . . I am $15.37 richer today thanks to all the people that have digitally downloaded my music over these last two years. Happy Birthday to ME! I think I'll put it toward my next CD. With only about $1,984.63 more to go, I should be able to put something special together by the time I'm 102.
