I have now been tagged for the “25 random things” meme about ten times, so I suppose I should actually pony up and generate a list. Many of you should recognize some or all of these, but people who are newer to cat.net in general won’t know all of them. For extra bonuses, I’ll link to some entries.
I hate the concept of ‘bucket lists.’ Life is so fragile and short, and I think I’d rather put thought and energy into experiencing life instead of just checking things off a list that ends with “and now that you’re done, hurl yourself off of a cliff.”
Thus the ‘life list’ at http://domesticat.net/todo which a few of you have seen so far. Not things to check off, but experiences I want, accomplishments I’m seeking, skills I’m willing to learn.
I’m taking a cue from Geof and Brad, and posting a list of my 2008 music in review. ObNote, of course, is that my account on last.fm made it incredibly easy to compile this list. This December marks four years of tracking my listening habits through their software, and it’s been a fascinating exercise.
Jeff and I don’t ‘vacation’ together often. He has the same love for quiet days at home that I do of plopping myself in a new city and learning it by wearing out the soles of my feet. The typical end result (which you will see in December) is of me packing a small bag and Jeff dropping me off to catch a plane heading off to parts unknown.
In life, there is a continuum between money and time. Most people, in order to make the amount of money they want to have in their lives, must sacrifice time. Those who want lots of time must give up money.
