Further Q.O.L. Musings

Some ways in which my life situtation has greatly improved over the last 5 years:

1. Foremost, no more crazy roommates! Instead, I get to live with 1 human I very much love and two delightful felines.
2. Better health. No longer the constant sinus and ear infections.
3. Gym membership.
4. A liveable salary.
5. Organic CSA food all summer.

Some ways in which I hope my life will become even better over the next 5 years:

1. Owning a stand alone home, especially because that will mean
2. No more noisy neighbors directly above our heads, driving us insane. The 50 Brazilians are being VERY BAD tonight.
3. Full-time shiatsu career.
4. More money when G. finishes his PhD, and therefore
5. More traveling.
6. New car.
7. Dare I dream?...Maybe even...a washer and dryer that are not operated by coins. Gasp!

And, in an absolutely perfect world:

1. Scientists discover that malted milk balls are good for you, especially in large quantities.
2. Better yet, elevated malted milk ball consumption counteracts even the most severe hayfever.
3. No more war, hunger, or strife.

Ooh! Can I play?

Some ways in which my life situtation has greatly improved over the last 5 years:

1. I no longer live in a moldy basement.
2. I have a really good computer.
3. I'm finished with school.
4. I know more--not much, but some--about what I like and don't like, my skills and my challenges, what makes me happy and what makes me miserable.
5. I've learned how to build a website. (Five years ago I would have guessed that cold fusion is what happens when you leave a bucket of ice cubes in the freezer for too long.)

Some ways in which I hope my life will become even better over the next 5 years:

1. I want a job in which I can spend the majority of my time on web design and development.
2. I want to pare all my possessions down to the barest minimum. Well, maybe not the barest, but I'd like to eliminate at least half of what I own.
3. I want to lose weight, God help me.
4. I want a wardrobe that consists almost entirely of homemade and/or recycled clothing.
5. I want to learn to hate instead of love Applebee's (Applebee's'?) chicken fajita rollups.

In an absolutely perfect world:

1. Politics would be debated in a respectful, reality-based, and thorough manner, sans personal attacks and appeals to morality.
2. Half the Mall of America would close, because people would suddenly realize that buying keychains that look like Minnesota license plates featuring their names (etc.) is just about the stupidest thing ever.
3. We'd have thirty-hour work weeks.
4. Malted milk balls would be considered an essential part of a balanced breakfast. And lunch. And dinner.
5. No more war, hunger, or strife.

I like yours, Ann!

I'm surprised all 3 of us like malted milk balls. Lots of people don't. No wonder we all hang out together in CyberSpace.

Also, Ann, what you said about understanding yourself better also resonates with me. I'd add that I'm more self-confident--or perhaps, self-accepting--at 28 than at 23.
