I'm a time waster. Every day I just sit around and do nothing, wasiting my time. However, that is about to come to an end. Tonight, because sleep is eluding me once more, I made some goals for myself. These goals focused on using my time better for a happier, healthier life.
I decided I need to manage my time better to prevent the waste. To accomplish this I've made myself a schedule that includes waking up at 8:00am for breakfast (the most important meal of the day) and Pilates, taking an hour for lunch during which I will study my scriptures with purpose and start journaling (because unless this counts I'm a failure at that) and getting to bed by 11:00pm every night. I've decided I need to start going to FHE on Mondays, that I really want to start dancing with the local Halau again (that takes place on Tuesdays) and I've even reserved Thursdays to continue my family history like I mentioned in my last post. I've also made goals to get out of La'ie once a month, go to the beach once a week (to play, to mediate or just to get some sun), and to start studying for my Praxis exam and PLT (teacher tests). I spend hours just clicking away on my computer. I really need to stop throwing my life away. These goals are how I'm going to do combat that bad habit.
BIG NEWS! I'd like to report a new addition to the family. Jefferson Davis (no relation to the Confederate President) was conceived tonight as a result of my insomnia. Don't worry, I'm not knocked up, I've just finally planted the seed paper that the school gave out (seed paper=recycled paper made with seeds mixed in, you know, to help the environment). Jefferson is named for Thomas Jefferson, founding father and agricultural enthusiest. He felt every citizen should own land so now I do. It's a little bit of land that I stole from the school and placed in the cut off bottom of a water bottle, but it's mine. Stolen land... Classy I know; I'm sure he's smiling down on me in approval. I took the dirt from some loose earth around one of the newly planted palm trees. I figure, in Hawaiian culture, the land belongs to no one so it's not really stealing. Besides, I'm going to plant Jefferson somewhere on campus before I leave so I'll be giving it back eventually. Let's just hope that that seed paper actually will grow something. Otherwise I'm going to be sorely disappointed. Hopefully in a week I'll be blogging about his "birth." Raising Jefferson on my own will be tough, but I think I have what it takes to be a good single Mother to him. Afterall, he's just a plant.
