It's the second day of May
(so I'm a little late posting)
but I figured, better late than never,
and so here are my goals for May
(and their wildly extensive explanations)
1. Live a healthier life.
I'm trying to adapt my life quite a bit lately,
I want to try living as close to the Earth as I can,
I want to feel like I was raised in the forest,
and born to run rather than sit,
to drink water rather than soda,
and to eat fruits & vegetables, rather than expect a factory
to process all my food so I could "just add water."
I might start wearing clothes with fringe,
and feather headbands, but
I'm not trying to sound like a total hippie, here,
I just want to live a healthier life, in the simplest way possible.
(Okay, I wouldn't hate becoming a hippie. Whatever!)
2. Live a craftier life.
a. work on my brand a lot more,
b. think about what blogs to sponsor for June, and
c. fill my shop with pretty things!
Easy peasy, I hope!
3. Live a smarter life.
Ever since I dropped out of college, I've felt dumb,
like I wasn't smart enough to keep going, or to keep up,
but that isn't the case. I was bored with being an English major.
My heart wasn't set on becoming a teacher,
but that's all anyone ever expected.
I was sick of being pulled in three very different directions,
being pulled by three very different dreams:
a. becoming a large animal veterinarian,
and eventually raising my own sheep,
b. selling my crocheted goods,
and eventually opening my own little yarn/crochet shop
c. writing my little heart out every waking moment,
and eventually becoming a published author with
that pesky little memoir (I've got some crazy stories!)
I have so much I want to do and be,
and sitting around isn't getting me any closer to my dreams.
So I'm going to start schooling myself
in the ways of the veterinarian, business-owner, and author,
since I can't afford that crazy little thing called college.
Until then, I'll just read a textbook at a time.
Sounds fair, since I always thrived better in online classes anyways.

Well, now that I've set some pretty easy little goals
I'm going to make my husband some final exam day muffins.
He woke up a little late this morning,
and didn't have time to eat breakfast,
so I'm making him muffins,
to celebrate the completion of a class
(and to make sure he's fed before work!)
I feel like such a great wife when I bake.
ps; listen to Joy Williams if you get the chance.
lovely, lovely, so lovely, voice!
