Hey, hi it’s me

Things I live by

Choose the buffet

Coffee first, inspiration will probably follow

Dance with your eyes closed

Realize the happy mistakes

When in doubt, go with a reuben

Drink good beer first

Be awkward when the moment deserves it

A Project of Lists

This is the start to an ongoing project I want to create. A project of lists. I’m not quite sure how it’s going to turn out, but here I go, let’s hope it can become something cool.  I’m going to post a series of lists, some of them will pertain to my life directly, as most of my blog does, but some are going to be lists written by or for someone else.  They’re not all going to be related to each other, and I’m going to post them sporadically. Lists are a way of keeping things in order, to help us remember what we’re supposed to do or what we want to do because we have a tendency to forget what’s important. I don’t think I’m going to explain these lists, I like the idea of having room for wonder and thought. But, I might change my mind on that, we’ll see…So, I’m going to start with a list that I wrote a while ago. It’s the list that inspired the idea of this project and I stumbled upon it among the dozen of open files I have on my laptop. Don’t get too excited, it’s nothing special but it was important to me when I created it, and it is still important when I reread it now.

This I promise myself.

Take responsibility for myself.

Be creative.


Make money to travel.


Be a proactive sister.

Pull my own weight.

Create lasting relationships.

Do what fulfills me.

Actively work toward something in my future.

Follow my heart.


Know something.
