what do i want

I saw The Women last weekend with a couple people, and one scene — really a montage — has really stuck with me. Mary is trying to figure out how to bounce back from the fact that her husband is having an affair. After a weekend at a retreat-type place — and smoking a joint with Bette Midler — she puts up a bulletin board with the words “What Do I Want” on the top. She pinned up all the things that were important to her and it helped her find focus.

I’ve recently been unfocused, and I think I’m going to follow Mary’s lead to try and find my focus. Between applying to grad schools, moving back across the country, redesigning my website and trying to figure out what my social life actually is, I could really use some focus.

I figured I could start it here, until I can hit up a CVS for some supplies.

What Do I Want

  • to get into grad school
  • to not be afraid to apply to the top schools in the country
  • to not be afraid to apply to schools in other countries
  • to pay off my credit card bill
  • to pay back J the money I owe him
  • to have a successful photography business
  • to be able to call myself a graphic designer
  • to have a group of friends like Friends or My Boys*
  • to be able to fall in love again… and not lose it
  • to be so deliriously happy that I can’t even stand it

What do you want?

*I’ll probably post about this further separately. I have lots of issues in the friends department.
