little thoughts. NY life To-Do-LIST

a pen and a notebook

So, I got a call from my parents in Japan

and they told me that

they have to demolish my grandpa’s house

sooner than they wanted.

Which means, I need to modify my to-do-LIST.

————————————————–

□ Make a photo album of my Grandpa’s fort

(The house my dad grew up is going to be

torn down now that my grandpa passed away.

…it’s sad.)

….sad.

□ create ‘Mom’s recipe book’

□ Travel to a country that is completely new to me.

□ Start studying another language.

(…and I am thinking French would be good.)

□design/make my business card

————————————————-

While I was at Millers by myself drinking,

I realized I didn’t bring any book to read

so I started making a list.

(Thank goodness I had my pen and my notebook,

I know this may sound silly but

I can’t just write with whatever pen and a piece of paper.)

The lists were…

– what I want to do by the time I turn 30,

– what I want to do while I am back in Japan

(so that I would know how long

I should be staying there this time.)

– what I want to do this year (besides the ones I listed above)

and this list has stuff like

‘always keep nails clean and polished.’

I guess making a list is like a little game to me.

Write down things that wouldn’t be so difficult to accomplish

but just the fact that you can cross out that item

is satisfying and motivating

and I think it makes it easier for me

to challenge a bigger thing.
