Because I care

Well, not really, but here’s the Friday Five from last week, since I missed it and there isn’t a new one up today. And forget this “one thing” shit — I will list as many things as apply.

What one thing are you most looking forward to . . .

1. …today?

Leaving work early.

2. …over the next week?

Paying my bills and learning/implementing a weight-loss plan with Shan (starting tomorrow).

3. …this year?

Being able to wear the clothes hiding in my closet that used to fit. Maybe letting my guard down a little bit more. Maybe taking more risks in my career and personal life. To, like Erica said, quit doing my job half-assed if I’m not just going to quit entirely.

4. …over the next five years?

To, if not get married, at least get into a long-term relationship. To publish a novel or two. To have started several small businesses. To travel. To figure out whether or not to reproduce. To decide where I want to live permanently (stay in NoVa, go back to Pittsburgh or find someplace else that appeals to me more).

5. …for the rest of your life?

To plastic surgery and to living off the royalties from my publications and the profits from my businesses. To not being lonely, or, at least, to not being alone. To teaching the next generation, whether or not it is my own offspring — I may decide to adopt or to become a mentor to someone who may really need me.
