goals et al.

I don’t know what I’m doing in life. I’m sure no one does, but for me, this revolves in and out of my thoughts each hour.

Yesterday’s ideas: I need to invent something, be creative. Mike suggested capturing and storing electrical energy from lightening. Then the design of solar cells – well, efficient solar cells came up. I email my friend Kevin, the solar cell guru, to discuss. I need to do some inspirational and motivational work. Something that massages the brain.

Today’s ideas: I like my job, it isn’t that bad. I just need to be challenged. Right. Five minutes later, I am reading up about developing countries and what they need and how I could deliver it to them. Five minutes later I am reading my Spanish book to try to remember what I have forgotten from last week’s lesson.

Tomorrow’s ideas: Who knows?

This much I know is true:
  • I want to organize a giant game of Duck-Duck-Goose to be played at Kits Beach
  • With the help of Kate, I want to play a week-long game digital scavenger hunt game where we take photos to complete tasks on a list.
  • Organize an International Dinner Club night to take place every 2 weeks or so. Couples (or, well, Tyler too) would cook main entrée(s) from a country at their house. Other folks would bring drinks/desserts/appetizers from the same country. Everyone eats. Everyone wins!

So now I’m back to where I started. Stupid ideas, no goals; running on the perpetual hamster wheel.

Bonnie and Chad used to do IDC in Victoria and there have been talks to start it over here.

Neato. I think we're going to do it with Kate and Curtis and a few other folks! Mostly to take advantage of Kate's amazing cooking skillz.

Hmm. Solar cell design and giant duck-duck-goose? I think you're plenty creative.
