On My Mind...

Just some things I've been thinking about:

  1. If I could give the world just one gift, it wouldn't be world peace. It would be the power to create a professional PowerPoint presentation. So few people can actually pull this off. If you ask me, that skill in itself could change the world.
  2. As much as I despise running, there's a very Zen element to it. Like yoga, where the teacher always tells you to "honor your body as it is today." I'm learning to tell where my limits are that day and whether or not I can push beyond them. I'm starting to know the ebbs and flows of my endurance. Kinda cool.
  3. Related to the above, I've decided what to do with my first million (you know, when I win the lottery I never play). A massage therapist on my personal payroll. I can't think of any better way to spend it.
  4. The problem-solving skills I learned in graduate school don't apply in all situations, sadly enough. Like many of the other things I learned in grad school that don't have real world applications...I wonder if my brain has the capacity to retrain itself? Hopefully.
  5. I just realized today that my 5 day weekend is a mere 11 days away. I think I can, I think I can.

Next time? A real topic.
