And I made my own list of stuff I want to accomplish during this year :)
Though I am pretty late about posting it her on the blog. So there are som changes on the way.. Which you can read about in the different sections :) I made the main list in January, as a new year goal :D
1. Walking / Camping vacation
I haven't been on a camping trip for ages and I miss it. I always wanted to be an outdoor person. A real nature geek. :p so this summer I want to play nature geek.
Talked to a friend about an upcoming trip.
We will walk all the way to our cabinn in the woods. Which is a walk up and down on more then 26 km. So we will bring a tent and sleep a night or two in the woods on our way :)
Will be the perfect trip for our dogs. Them will absolutly love, running around.
Then when we reach our old cabinn, which is in the middle of a wood, with no water or electricty. Just like in the old days :p
We will stay there a day or two. Just relaxing. Reading, fishing etc...
Totally chillen. :p
2. New York, BEA
This is in my head all the time. I am so excited about going to USA. It's just unbelivable I am going. Which I know I will. Coz flight ticket and "hotel" is already booked :) and BEA (Book Expo America) ticket is already bought. :D YaY
Can't believe it. I was going to travel alone, but now my best friend will join me. And I am so thankfull. It will make it much much better. We already planned a lot we need to see and do.
But more about that later on the blog ;)
3. Afrika again
The course I was going to attend got cancelled and I made a decision to stay home and rattet go another time, when I can afford to be there for a longer time. Since I was going to volunteer at Knysna Elephant Park. And I feel I need at least one month for that.
Though I am still dreaming and If I find out I can afford a little trip at one point I will not hesitate to go :p
I love Africa and I so miss being down there :(
And hopefully in a couple of years I have saved enough to volunteer at Knysna.
Coz working with elephants is my biggest dream ever :D
4. Start studying again Hopefully, It`s now it`s happening. I applyed for starting school again this summer.
I applyed for a study called Ecology and Natur ressaurces. Which is a bachelor degree, on 3 years.
Which sounds super interesting. I miss going to school and learn new things.
So hope to get into this :D
Specially since I already quite my job and stopped the contract of my appartment :P haha
My normal plans, since I was a kid, has always been to study Zoology/Biology on the University.
But I am missing one lesson to have what it takes + I can`t really afford to move to one of the big cities.
So therefor I chose the Ecology and Nature study. Sounds like they have some of the same things going on :P
Anyways.. Cross your fingers everyone.. I wanna go to school xD
5. Draw a drawing, and be happy about it
I loved drawing before and I miss it. Though normally I end up ditching the drawing, cause I am not happy about it. Last time I was really happy about a drawing, is the drawing above. I made it back in 2008. So that`s quite awhile ago :P
Or I actually drew one thing after the "princess drawing". My drawing of how I wanted my tattoo to look like. But that is pretty much it. And therefor I need to draw more. So I can practice and get better. Most of all cause I want one more tattoo. And I wanna design it myself :P
6. Make Scrapbook picture from my Africa trip
I own an insane amount of Scrapbooking stuff. And I never get to use it :(
So one of my goals are to make a collage/picture from my Africa trip. Which I can put in a frame and hang on the wall :D
Coz I have so much cool pictures, brochures, postcards etc. from the trip.
Just laying around waiting for me to get creative again.
So many good memories :D
What better way to show it off ;)
7. Pearl a picture
Last year I found this page were you can donate and help small orphan elephants.
And I love elephants. And wish I could help them all. Unfortunatly I can`t :(
But one of my goals this year is to adopt 1 or 2 elephants in that "park".
Since they do such a good job watching out for them :)
I got to know about it from a DVD I bought in Africa, called Elephant Diaries.
9. Learn how to shoot with bow and arrow
haha Yes... This one was quite spontanius :P But I saw THE DRESS, the other day. Killer dress I need to own. And the model was standing with a bow and arrow.
And I thought at once. I wanna be here :P I need to learn how to shoot with it, coz that would be totally bad ass :P
So hopefully it`s possible to learn yourself.
First off I need to buy a set. Which is not cheap :/ by the way.. But I will do it.. When I can afford and have the time :P
10. Clean and sort out my boxes
OMG... I got so much stuff.. After several times of moving I have boxes I haven`t even unpacked. Some boxes even from I was a teenage girl, who couldn`t fit the things in my little room.
So now is the time to sort out everything and sell or giveaway the stuff I no longer need.
And hopefully digg out some old treasures, I have been missing :P
