The Decade List

Now that I am 30, there are a few things I want to do in my next decade. This is by no means a comprehensive list. Also, in no particular order.
  • Skydive
  • Spend a month in Europe
  • Take a knife techniques class (for in the kitchen, though the other class could be cool, too)
  • Write a book and shop it around
  • Write a screenplay
  • Travel to at least 2 different continents
  • Find a bunch of Daddy's German records (you didn't think I would leave out the Family Historying did you?)
  • Possibly go back to school for a Masters, or to Culinary school
  • Save up for the perfect kitchen, which will include this (or a form of this--I dream about this oven)
  • Return to some of my acting/musical roots--community theatre-wise, maybe.
  • Find a regular gig where I can sing Jazz at a piano for hours
  • Meet a regular make-out partner--er, potential boyfriend (er, Richard Armitage?)
  • Go visit all the friends I haven't seen in ages (you know who you are! and I miss you!)
  • Beg Daddy to make me another bookshelf, and buy a house with room for it. . . and a library
  • Save up a nest egg
  • Get my food storage set and rotated at regular intervals (I totally need to schedule it better)
  • Take a few dancing classes (possibly Tango--I think those little flick-kicks are the sexiest things ever)
  • Go to Comic-Con (Yes, I am a geek, but if you know what this is, you are too)
  • Attend a session at all the Temples on the Eastern seaboard (I have done 4 of them: Palmyra, DC, Raleigh, and Orlando so far)
  • Go to more cultural events (I miss when I used to be a season ticket holder at the ballet--don't you love how snobby that sounds?)
  • Write to Sean once a week while he is on his mission (I am a terrible corresponder, so this will be a feat!)
  • Read more spiritually-inspired books (I struggle with anything non-fiction lately)
  • Get a food processor that works
  • Invest in some really top quality kitchen knives
  • Learn to can more and do it.
  • Make a list of the books I've read, and start keeping track of what I thought about them--maybe booklist them for fun (Ah, Jen, I obviously miss your book lists)
  • Go to the library more, rather than buying every thing I am craving
  • Learn to relax more.
  • Create more Doctor Who, Veronica Mars, Pushing Daisies fans
  • Tell my friends more that I adore them.

Okay, so I am sure there are more, but there are 30 to start off with.

Yeah! Come see me! And speaking of Dr. Who, I need to send you the picture we took of David coming out of a phone booth in London. It was his idea--we did it just for you! :)
