a bum's life

by june next year, i will have left my job to concentrate on being a graduate student--attending penalty classes and doing my long-overdue thesis.

i am so excited!

well, except for the fact that i will have no income, i am looking forward to doing a lot of things i haven't been able to do ever since getting a regular job.

aside from the student-on-thesis-mode life, here are the things on my to-do list (which really won't make me so much of a bum):

  1. take a refresher course on driving
  2. learn to cook--a new dish a week!
  3. run, jog, ride my bike, walk around in the mornings (or afternoons)
  4. spend time with my pets
  5. do some street photography
  6. go on a sketchcrawl
  7. practice my coloring (colored pens, watercolor, gouache)
  8. craft some stuff
  9. explore new places
  10. write, write, write
  11. read, read, read
  12. scan old photographs
  13. freelance (i've been a production coordinator, magazine writer, house builder, wall painter, and pet sitter among other things, so i guess i can do whatever i set my mind to)
  14. volunteer for a cause 
  15. catch up on bones (season 4 was the last one i watched!)

aaaand that's all i can think of right now.  i'm really excited for this "new venture" and even if i won't have a regular 8-5 job (and the cash that comes with it), i feel like there's so much i'll be able to accomplish.  :) [crossing fingers]

here's to the good bum's life!
