live in the nooowwwww, mannnn [Mar. 9th, 2011|03:54 pm]
My biggest flaw that I can think of right off the bat is that I find it difficult to live in the moment. As often as I preach it, I forget myself and jump ahead to the next half hour, several hours, days, months, years.... I need to stop that.

But it does make times like this a bit easier, knowing that when I have a pretty snotty sinus infection and busy times at work, that I've got an exciting trip to Santa Fe planned with a special someone. A day of relaxing in the hot springs of Ojo Caliente will most certainly provide relief from the challenges I've been taking on lately.


After a month away from the paintbrushes up at Lookout Mountain, I had a chance to get down and paint for a bit... WOOT! I have so much more work to do but I am excited to be near completion with this room. Here is a taste of it... the one wall that is pretty much 100% complete. :)


I think I've got next year planned out. Thailand is out... but I'm still getting my certification to teach English as a foreign language. I'm tentatively planning on working in Denver until the end of NEXT school year, just to give myself some more time to finish the gross magnitude of projects I have to wrap up before leaving.... and of course fit in some more quality time with a certain lovely lady...

Alright. I'll start living in the now... tomorrow.

Planning is good. :) I'm a planner, too.
