15 000!

By spotogspindel | October 28, 2009

Today is very special. Today I am 15 000 days old! That´s pretty serious! I´ve been thinking about how I should celebrate my special day. I mean, it´s way cooler to celebrate a 15000-days day, than any other traditional “round” day, like 30, 40 or 50. But I did have a big celebration last year, on my 40th , and today, my dearest will be away all day too. So I´ll celebrate all on my own by writing a couple of lists. One of the things that I am proud to have accomplished during the first 15000. And then another one of major things I want to happen in the next 15000. That´s right. I am planning on becoming 82 years old. 

Live strong

Things that I have accomplished and am proud of (in random order):

I don´t have stage fright anymore.

I have sung and acted on stage for several thousands all together.

I have had a solo-exhibition.

I have a solid education.

I have worked hard.

I have made sacrifices for what I believe in.

I have made a difference in somebody else´s life. 

I have my own company.

I am able to take care of myself financially and practically.

I have travelled alone to foreign countries.

I can drive a mini-bus.

I have inspired my students.

I can lay a wooden floor. 

I can grow potatoes and make apple-drink (saft).

I love and am loved in return. (I know this is not an accomplishment, but I sure do appreciate it!)


Things that I want to achieve (still in random order):

I want to publish a book.

I want to be important to a child.

I want to travel to Japan, Peru, Bali, New Zealand, Vietnam, Burma, South-China. And then some.

I want to do set-design.

I want my own studio (outside of the home).

I want to learn more. More art-techniques and more general knowledge.



I´ll probably keep adding to both lists, as life is so full.

    Good lists. And you’ll be 82. At least.

    Great way to celebrate day 15000! I love a quote I found in another blog the other day: Dream wide awake!
