Now that I have accomplished the whole degree thing, I have been putting some thought into my what needs to get done next and have been attempting to create a “life list”… a 50 before 50 sort of thing. Realistically, if I actually wanted to accomplish 50 things before I turn 50, given how my life seems to go, I probably should have come up with this list when I was about ten years old, so I have decided that this could be a sort of carry over kind of thing. What doesn’t get done by 50 will just go on the 60 before 60 list. One has to keep striving after all.
So I sat down and pondered what I wanted to do, or have, or be.
I’ve been thinking for two days.
I have nine things so far.
And despite the fact that the list making is not going as well as I anticipated, I may have figured out the a long term career goal… one for the 80 before 80 list. I think I want to be one of those little old ladies who become famous in television commercials, like Clara Peller’s “Where’s the beef?”. Remember her?
So maybe simply getting older should be on my “life list?” And if so, wouldn’t that pretty much guarantee you’d never finish your list (perpetually carrying it forward)?
(Sigh) Maybe I should just list 50 different chocolate things I could eat and be done with it.
