My Five-Year To-Do List



Click on the list for a larger view.

This list was written in November 2006, and it's a five-year to-do list, hence I have three years left to cross everything off. My friends Sonya, Kenneth, and Adam made it for me (after interviewing me). We did the same thing for everyone that night. I've managed to accomplish half of the second item (the new language learned: Portuguese). I hope to accomplish the other half of the second item soon. The rest of it remains to be seen. It's going to be a busy, exciting three years, writing horses (whatever that means) and looking at houses with wraparound porches.

Wow! On such fancy paper too!

How am I faring on the list?

1. The house with the wraparound porch seems quite distant, but I'm keeping the faith this will materialize.

2. I've made significant process on this one. I learned Portuguese this year and even well enough to speak it in a crowded bar in Rio with loud music. Now I just have to live in Rio.

3. Write a horse? I still have no clue what this means, but an interpretation will come to me.

4. Lobbying for reproductive rights? Hmmm, I just rented Lake of Fire, which is about abortion politics. Maybe I should actually watch it.

5. Get married, maybe one kid. This part also seems distant, but I (try to) have faith.

6. Best-selling book. I have two books that have sold well, not best sellers yet, but anything could happen.

7. Sing in a choir/lounge singer--this just needs to happen. At the least, I have already sung karaoke, and will continue to.

Oh, I remember this list! LOL! I must admit, I haven't had much luck on my list either--particulaly on that lofty aim to write a screenplay for Drew Barrymore.

Maybe the writer is really ignorant or was really drunk and meant... RIDE a horse?
