I don’t have time… no more excuses!

Don’t pretend that you aren’t victim to this. You have a particular interest in a hobby, have always wanted to learn a language, or thrive to wail on the air-guitar. But, you always use the excuse… “I don’t have time!” 

It came to my attention, when I started to have more energy after the accident, that I can no longer claim to be too busy. 


So, I wrote down some things I have always wanted to do.

I’m in red looking awkwardly at the guitar player

* Learn Spanish. -Here’s the thing. I have no excuse for not knowing how to speak Espanol. My grandfather lived in the Dominican Republic for 20-some years, before he passed away. His wife and daughters are Dominican, and I am extremely close to them. I have been traveling to the gorgeous country since I was 3 years old. Yet, still, I speak broken Spanish. I understand a ton… but my native tongue is non-existent.

Natalie’s bday gift 

* Be Crafty! -Thanks to the surge in popularity of Pinterest, this is attainable now, more than ever. I have already made a few crafts, but I won’t stop there. Friends and relatives can expect some handmade gifts…whether you like it, or not. I am also crafting up some redecorating ideas for around the house. 

Victim of a brush fire

* Grow a green thumb. -Much easier said, than done. I kill all my plants. My grass looks like it suffered a brush fire… oh wait, it did. Last year. But, I will try to grow a green thumb, one bud at a time. 

* Write a book. -This is really my number 1. I have always wanted to be an author. Even when I was a little girl, it’s what I dreamed of becoming one day.  I guess this blog is a start. I just don’t have a great idea yet. Hopefully, I will have an eureka moment soon enough.

So, there you have it. My list of MUST DO’s… since I can no longer use the excuse, “I don’t have time…”
