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.)
□ 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.
