I feel like my life is always on the cusp of a great big change lately.  One week, I want to be  yoga instructor, the next week not.  One week I want to quit my job and move somewhere brand new with my husband and animals with no plans whatsoever, the next week I chide myself on daydreaming that I can just pack everything and leave.  But no matter the day or the week, I never stop dreaming!  My husband teases me on how I am always daydreaming and sometimes I will forget that I’m daydreaming.

For example, and this is kind of embarrassing, I was driving on 494E and saw a billboard on the powerball.. I think it was some insane amount of gazillion bajillion dollars that you could win.  As I’m driving down the highway, I start thinking about what I would do with that amount of money.  And I get lost in my daydream , as usual.  I call my husband and tell him all these things that we were going to do with that money and he had to (kindly) remind me that, no, Susel, we don’t have a gazillion dollars to spend on a private island for abused animals (dammit!)

But I actually really like that about me and I never want to lose my optimistic, day dreaming, can do anything, side of myself.  And I think because I am surrounded by other people who have the same mentality, I keep on planning and dreaming and searching.  And here are some things that I have control over (unlike the powerball..)

  • go back to school to get my MBA : for the longest time, I thought I wanted to be a counselor or a social worker.  So I went to school for social work.  8 years later, I’m pretty sure I don’t want to be a counselor or a social worker.  I want to be in marketing, social media, or something where I can use my outgoing personality to my advantage.  Unfortunately, my resume does not show my personality (too bad!).  And I want to learn more, I want to learn about business, I want to learn about marketing, I want to be an actual boss so I am exploring the notion of going back to school.  First step:  meeting with my director at work this week who obtained her MBA at Carlson School of Management and learn about her experience.  And I already met with another director at work about her experience at St. Thomas.  Like I said, surrounded by amazing people always.
  • have a financial advisor: stocks? bonds? CDs? mutual funds? index funds? savings? checking? WHAT DO I NEED TO DO WITH THIS MONEY?? (not gazillion dollars unfortunately ..)  *in process*
  • start a family?? : who knows…if my dad had his way, he would have 5 grandchildren already LOL

 

What about you?? What’s on your immediate bucket list?  Anything that you’ve been thinking about lately? Tell me what it is!  And I SAY GO FOR IT!
