I've been tagged (again) by the lovely Odat and challenged to list five courses that I wish I could take to "improve" my life. (She said "fix" my life, but I rather enjoy my life these days.)
The rules are as follows:
Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. (If only it were that simple!)
It's more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you'd also like to take. Tag five other people.
Ok, here's mine:
1) HOW TO KEEP MY HOUSE SPOTLESS:
I seem to thrive on organized chaos. My desk at work is a mess, but I know where everything is. If my boss needs something I can always put my hands right on it. My house is becoming the same way. I can envision myself when I'm old(er), having piles of junk everywhere but knowing what every pile was for. I'm beginning to wish I were a neat freak... which leads me to the next class.
2) HOW TO OVERCOME A BAD CASE OF THE "I DON'T WANNAS"
A requirement course to be taken before all other courses are attempted.
3) HOW TO SKIP OVER BAD RELATIONSHIPS
I am engaged to the coolest dude ever, but in some ways I wish I could have skipped over the last couple of guys I was involved with. Maybe this falls under the heading of "Ya gotta kiss a lot of frogs to get to Prince Charming."
4) HOW TO PACK UP 9 YEARS ACCUMULATION OF JUNK IN ONE EASY STEP
I sit here and look around at all the stuff I have accumulated in the last 9 years and think I need to get rid of about half of it, but then I think, "BUT I NEEEEED IT." I can't move all of this, but can't seem to make myself get rid of what needs to go. I seem to be a bit of a pack rat.
5) BE NOT AFRAID OF THE MOTORCYCLES
The Handsome JC is a motorcycle fanatic and is shopping around for his newest acquisition, the Harley Davidson Rocker C. He has informed me that I will be riding with him. This also refers back to Course #2 on overcoming the I Don't Wannas, which is a prerequisite for all other courses.
6) HOW TO CREATE GREEN VEGETABLES THAT TASTE LIKE CHOCOLATE
This one was created by Odat, and I think I'd like to be in on this class. She said, "In spite of the fact that I try really hard to eat right, when all is said and done, I'm a real junk food addict! It's not that I don't like vegetables, I do! But they're just not something I sit and crave when I'm thinking about what to eat!"
There you have it, I do believe the above courses would greatly enhance my quality of life.
Now to tag the next five people (according to Odat's instructions).
1. Nina over at Flibbertigibbit.
2. Jess at This Life is Mine.
3. Hearts In San Francisco over at Guilty with an Explanation.
4. Tallyho (I love that name) over at A Day in the Life of....
5. Steve over at Steve's Blog.
There you have it. I can't wait to read their responses.
