I happened to pick up one of my old journals this weekend, which is always entertaining, but I found a real gem of an entry in there that I am going to share. I wrote this in college:
There are so many things I want to do. Just for fun, I'll make a timeline. This summer I will go home and skate and work to save up. In spring I will study abroad in Italy. Next summer I will live and work in Santa Cruz. The summer after graduation I will travel the US. That fall I will start beauty school. I will go on tour with an ice show after finishing cosmetology school (and studying in France). Somewhere amongst this I will have met the love of my life and after I finish touring we will visit Europe together. Then we will come back and I'll start work as an esthetician and he will start work as a millionaire. [Love the optimism.] I'll attend business school and open up a spa, that becomes world renowned. Then someday I will go to the East with my husband, just like the MasterCard commercial. [!?]
Well, I got the traveling Europe with the love of my life part right. And I probably meant to say accountant, instead of esthetician. And Dietrich's work as a millionaire is right around the corner. I can feel it.
P.S. If your wondering about the photo, it's sort of a far out tangent, but in light of all the planning I did for my future back then it's a prediction of what our future child will look like. I uploaded our photos to this site, and that's what it gave me!
Also, a neat online diary here.
