A new way of doing things.

Sometime last week a good friend of mine told me that I should write a book. When I told him that seemed silly, who would read my book and he told me, "We will, your friends will. You've had a crazy life and we all have be a part of it at some point. We want to read our part and we want to read the parts of others. We want to know more about this crazy cool girl that we know." Now granted that is NOT what he said word for word... that's what I got out of it.

With this I really started thinking about what I would write about. What about my life would people want to read? What stories would I tell? Would I create chapters? How would I start my "life's story" when I am not even half way into it? This left me with even more unanswered questions.

So my solution was to ask the people in my life, "If I were to write a book, what part would you want to hear about?" Then I decided to blog about it, keep a log. This way people get to be a part of the book in more ways than one. This way I can also put in the conversations that get started as a result to sharing my life.

Needless to say I will answer one or two questions a night until you stop asking me to tell you stories.

So let's get started. Question number one coming in from Sean (San Francisco):

Sean: I'd like you to write about what has been important to you and what your dreams are, then I would want read the whole book.

Me: What specifically?

Sean: Goals should be specific.

I would love to know what your dreams are... and if you have the pages, tell me why they are important to you.

If you really want to explain things, tell me what happened in your past that makes you the awesome girl I know.

Answer: It would be impossible to tell you all of my goals and dreams because I make more every single day. I do not live my life without making bigger and better goals for my self each day. For example, you inspiring me to write a book, which has let to this idea of blogging which has led me to having people ask me questions about my life on a daily basis. See it’s just a creation on top of a creation.

My current goals/dreams for this year are as follows:

- By June 1st having moved out of Pacifica
- By September 1st having saved up enough money to pay for a deposit and living on my own in SF.
- By July 23rd having sold my car
- Before the end of this year leaving the country for the first time
- Celebrate my 22 birthday in style and passion
- Make each day better then the last
- Love myself for the great things I do
- Don’t sweat the small stuff
- Learn how to deal with people better.
- Finish writing this book…. Figure out what to do with it.

That’s just the ones off the top of my head for this year….

Ok it’s 10:48 and I need sleep.. Will finish this thought tomorrow.
