- Relearn how to use a sewing machine
I learned when I was in high school and I used to be pretty good! But over the years I had less time (and less heart) to do it, and it's gotten to the point where I've completely forgotten how to use a machine. My mom also has a brand new machine that remains untouched by either of us. No more; I want to make my own tote bags, head wraps and some clothes!
- Open a savings account and Roth IRA
- Buy a camera and take more photos
I have an Olympus point-and-shoot (man is it terrible!), a Canon DSLR (great photos but it's quite heavy, especially when lugging lenses around) and of course my Samsung Galaxy phone. Funnily enough, my phone has been my go-to for memorable shots in my life. While convenient since I have it with me anyways, I do want a medium to take higher res photos and videos. I'm going back and forth between a GoPro (I'm realizing more how videos are awesome to relive experiences) or a Leica. I'm not visiting Europe for the first time without a great (hopefully lightweight?) instrument to take photos/videos!
- Blog regularly
My intention is not to impress anyone or even command attention with this blog, I'm definitely doing it to record my thoughts and my life to look back upon later.
