Lately, I have been giving a lot of thought to life and death. Things occasionally happen that make me question how I live my life. I'm not saying that I am engaging in destructive behavior or anything wild and crazy. Actually, it is just the opposite. I live a pretty routine life. I go to school, I spend a lot time with my family, my fiance, and not quite enough time with my friends. I enjoy everyday but I am a dreamer and I am constantly conjuring up ideas and things I can get into. However, I rarely do any of them. I am not a lazy person just scared, maybe. I often second guess myself and wonder if I could really actually do something that I want to do. In light of recent events, I am analyzing my life and my dreams. I need to solidify my dreams into goals, not only dreams. Feasible goals not crazy BIG dreams. As a child I wanted to be an artist (feasible dream) and as a teenager I wanted to be famous (crazy BIG dream). As an adult I realize that to be happy in life, you do not always need to live large and satisfy your crazy BIG dreams. You must change your feasible dreams into goals and step by step make them into a reality. Which, who knows, may one day become your crazy BIG reality. In life their is death, this I need to remember in order to help me learn to take more risks (no not skydiving), follow my heart, and my dreams. We only get one chance at this life...we should take advantage of it! Over the next few weeks I am going to take some time to record my dreams as goals and try to take the steps to turn them into a reality. I hope I stick to this... we'll see how it goes. :)

So I went to the bookstore yesterday to buy a program for school. They handed me a small cardboard like piece of paper all nicely wrapped in plastic. I preceded to the checkout line where I swiped my card and signed away 100 dollars. Today I decided to download it. I opened it up fully expecting a nice cd rom of information to keep and then download to my computer. Then to my surprise there was nothing... it was just a fancy wrapped code. Seriously?
