I knew that if I didn’t write anything down I wouldn’t actually get anything done. I would instead waste away my time without actually doing anything that I wanted to do when I set out on this funny little journey! So these are some of the things that made me think, yes that’s how I would like to spend some of my days!
Spend more time reading – My reading list is huge. No matter how much I read I always seem to have an increasing ‘To Read’ pile. I think this might have something to do with living a 4 minute walk from Waterstones… I’m making my way through a lot of social-economics, theology, poetry and a bit of fiction on the side. Which makes for a very interesting plot mix up when I start reading 4 books at once!!
Find a part time job around people – I love people. If I could spend more time around people and be paid for it that can only be good. The ideal is a coffee shop job… which I now have! Result! Job done!
Do ‘The Artists Way‘ in some shape or form – A lot of people have recommended this to me over the past 9 months and whilst I don’t really think myself as a creative person I think it could open up some unexpected learning experiences! One part of it is writing 3 pages of stream of consciousness. I’ve given it a go in the past but only manage a couple of weeks. Let’s see if I can actually stick with it!
Spend more time outside – Hopefully this will involve swimming in the sea at least 3 times over the next month.
Meet and spend quality time with 3 people who’s lifestyle/work ethic intrigues me – Meet, learn, share and collect stories. Hopefully with a few beers. Perfect.
Breath deeply – Sounds silly but I don’t think I stop enough. I would like to stop and be still a little bit more.
Learn a new craft/find a creative output – I want to learn how to do something and see myself improve at it overtime, I get a lot of satisfaction out of this.
Drink more coffee – Because it’s delicious and coffee shops are a delightful (biased but true).
