"I must go alone... I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown, full grown. Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they? And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay"

To become motivated!

Goals:

-- Fill out cover letters for the 5 jobs sitting in my inbox
-- Follow up with contacts for "informational interviews"
-- Come up with a writing plan to finish novel by the end of August
-- Start investigating roommates
-- Call mentor and schedule regular times
-- Get finances in check

The only way change is going to happen in my life is if I do it. So no more complaining, no more being complacent, it's time for me to take control and be proactive. I have to make time to write, I have to pursue opportunities, I need to readjust my budget so I can take photography classes. I need to get out of my apt. on the weekends and take pictures! None of this is going to come to me, no someone is not going to knock on the my door, having heard how good I am at taking pictures, and offer to send me to Kenya for a year. I have to make that happen. And it's goin to take sacrifice, but if I really want to write and take pictures - instead of using them as my escape dreams at work when things suck - I need to start moving towards them.

The pity party is done, it's time for action!

Plan: DO SOMETHING
