I have been writing a post in my head titled “Semi Charmed Kind of Life.” I am actually taking time to form a meaningful post…but in the meantime, this has been swirling in and out of my head the last few days.
Monday is the 1 year anniversary of me being fired from my teaching job. That’s really a post in and of itself that may come Monday, but there is one thing I still haven’t figured since that dreadful(ly awesome) day. What in the world do I want to do with my life? I mean, this is a loaded question if I’ve ever known one…but seriously…what do I want? I started dating someone, thinking they were what I wanted in a romantic (potential marriage) partner. I chased after several chidlren’s ministry job oppurtunities, thinking that was to be my next career. Really, love/relationships and my “career path” are just…well, they elude me, as words have just now. Sometimes I think I know what I want or like regarding these two areas of my life…other times I am just so lost…
Speaking of those things I know I like and or want…maybe I should start there? The power of positive thinking, right? And since I love lists, for your reading pleasure…
A Random Collection of Things Kelly Likes and/or Wants Regarding Love, Relationships. Career and Et Cetera and/or She Knows To Be True About Herself as She Tries To Figure the Rest Out:
I want a job that is more than just a job and does something to help the greater good.
I want a relationship that is centered on Christ.
I love hoodies and will always love hoodies.
I will most likely always fall asleep to a movie if it is dark and/or late.
I really want to be romanced. I don’t want to be that girl that waxes on all cynically about how flowers die or she doesn’t need chivalry. I tried that. Turns out I think I’m missing romance.
I want to take care of people. In relationships, maybe for my career. And I kind of want to be taken care of…to an extent.
I will never manage my finances as well as I should.
I do not take care of my things (Tyrone and his one hubcap, for instance) therefore I will probably never have NICE things. Oh, and I will always hit curbs. Don’t ask. I cannot explain it.
I will most likely will always struggle with this weight loss as I love food and being lazy just too darn much.
I will always be a morning person. Campbell genes.
I will always enjoy napping. Campbell genes.
I will always write long, verbose lists. Campbell genes.
I will always trying to blames my short comings on someone else, like Campbell genes. (Whoops)
OK, this list is a bit self-indulgent, but isn’t that what blogs are all about? Ok, well, maybe not…but well…mine is? Haha.
So, if anyone could figure anything out about my life for me based on this list, I’d much appreciate that. Many thanks.
