52 Lists: Dream Jobs

'52 Lists' is a blog activity started by Moorea-seal, based on a book called 'List Yourself'.

Self reflection always appeals to me, so I thought I would give it a go. I'm months behind, but I thought I might just go through them at my own pace now.

Week 14: List Your Childhood and Current Dream Jobs

Current dream and actual job
  • Psychologist - I love it. This was only my dream job from the age of about 17.
Previous
  •        Marine biologist /turtle conservationist
  •        Chocolate taster
  •        Librarian
  •        Lipgloss tester
  •        Making nature documentaries
  •        Teacher

It will be really interesting to look back on these in a week, a month, a year or more and see how it has changed. Part of the reason I love doing these things is because they are so reflective of your current 'at this very moment' self, and therefore, even if I did this again tomorrow, I am sure some of the things would be different.

Animals: Perfect little pika

Here are a few happy snaps of one of my fave animals ... the pika.
They are just tiny little furry guys who collect piles of stuff and hoard it for the winter. They also make the cutest little calling sounds.

52 Lists: Things You Want To Make


'52 Lists' is a blog activity started by Moorea-seal, based on a book called 'List Yourself'.

Self reflection always appeals to me, so I thought I would give it a go. I'm months behind, but I thought I might just go through them at my own pace now.


Week 13: List The Things You Want To Make
-         A BABY !!!
I’m not much of a ‘maker’, but I want to make
  •       Chicken nachos, brownies, scones (the things I am craving right now)
  • The best life I can for my husband and myself
  • A (positive) difference to peoples lives
  • More of an effort with my healthy eating/fitness (in order to make that baby)
  • More plans for our holiday later this year
  • Another collage of photos – this one for my husbands work space
  • A surprise package for my sisters
  • A decision about the buying vs renting debate and where to live.
  • Mostly, I just want to make a baby.
This one was hard for me, I think because I couldn’t get my head around the ‘make’ terminology – ‘make’ seems to me to be more about creative things,  which I am not good at/don’t do much of.
This is one I really should revisit and see if I can do better.
