List Five Things...

The Friday 5 for the week of Nov. 21 was tough. It took me a long time to think of answers, and once again, I considered not doing it, but decided to post anyway. These are an excellent thought excercise.

  1. List five things you'd like to accomplish by the end of the year.
  2. List five people you've lost contact with that you'd like to hear from again.
  3. List five things you'd like to learn how to do.
  4. List five things you'd do if you won the lottery (no limit).
  5. List five things you do that help you relax.

  1. List five things you'd like to accomplish by the end of the year.
    1. Lose (more) weight. This has started with the Lo-carb eating. I plan/hope to continue the positive trend.
    2. Get a job. Even another short-term job.
    3. Exercise :-(
    4. Read more books :-)
    5. Get the storage locker emptied, the sunroom cleared of old books, the workroom straightened...

  2. List five people you've lost contact with that you'd like to hear from again.
    This one was handled back in July by a previous Friday Five list about friends. I can't think of anyone I wish I was in touch with that I'm not in touch with.

  3. List five things you'd like to learn how to do.
    1. I'd like to learn how to do better time management :(
    2. I'd like to learn how to stay calmer, react less to other people sometimes ...
    3. I would still love to be fluent in American Sign Language.
    4. I'd like to improve my skills with Object-oriented Perl, Perl data structures, maybe mod_perl if I get a chance
    5. I'd like to learn how to do whatever it is that will get me a job I enjoy and want to keep!

  4. List five things you'd do if you won the lottery (no limit).
    1. Pay off the house!
    2. Replace the "beater car" with a newer model (it's a great car but small, old, and has body rot :(
    3. Pay off all the credit cards, credit lines, and various loans!
    4. Buy some nice things for friends and family members
    5. Re-do the dining room floor, build the back deck, upgrade the rest of our windows, — do all sorts of projects around the house we can't afford to start or finish.

  5. List five things you do that help you relax.
    1. Spend time with the cats
    2. Spend time at home
    3. Soak in the hot tub
    4. Take a nap
    5. Read
