For a teacher, summer is a sacred time when a tiredass caterpillar can metamorphosize into a rad freakin' butterfly. You have the opportunity to become new. You can re-invent yourself! With 8 weeks of boundless potential my brain gets excited and synapses in a thousand different directions.
Brand Love and Emily Ballard, I have spent a week or so just ruminating about a question posed there. Many truth statements precipitated throughout the day but this one still has me going.
If you could do anything (money/skill/time/childcare/education are not an issue) and knew that you would be wildy successful at it, what would you do?
-Sub-question for myself:
-What would you do if you weren't afraid about what someone else would think?
So far here is my list (in a verbal vomit order):
..... I would write children's books/board books with sassy-ass blog post in the back for the mamas.
..... I would buy a yellow motorcycle and re-teach myself how to ride.
....I would have a garden including vegetables and fruit trees and lots of basil. I love pesto.
.....I would get more tattoos. On my arm. Yeah, in a visible place. Who cares.
.....I would create a line of little girl clothes with embroidery on those weird bloomer underwear things: like, "If I'm crawling, I'm falling. So I guess, in turn I would use my sewing machine more.
..... I would work again as a pharmacy technician at an independent pharmacy. There was something about make small talk with elderly people that I absolutely loved.
..... I would wear more random logo t-shirts, bigger earrings and funky headbands made out of tribal looking fabric.
If you could do anything...and would be great at it, what would you do? #yourlist
