Money, money, money
After spending consecutive
hours with my eyes glued to the computer screen, I am ready to go offline for
a few days. But before I do so, let me jot down some thoughts.
in the last four months of being job-free:
- Caught up on my personal
- Joined a local health club and got into a routine of daily exercise:
aerobics, yoga, pilates, weight lifting, cycling, and
swimming --- not necessarily in that order
new recipes such as thick German cream soup, apple cake, pear cake, and started
buying exotic vegetables like beet and fennel for further experimentation
Le Bon Journal newsletter
for off-line readers
- Read and wrote an 800-word review of a book on multi-criteria
decision making - to appear in The Journal of Energy Literature in December
and published an article on UK employment law in Freepint
- Performed (piano) in London
and Ede (Netherlands)
- Updated my web sites
- Started new chamber music with cellist and violist
a new neighbourhood watch and resident's association
in my street
- Spent quality time (5 weeks) with Mommie
- Started taking weekly NLP classes
- Read and reviewed many self-help books
several art exhibitions, including private viewings
- Became a culture
vulture and art critic: plays, musicals, events, etc.
I can use this list to update my friends and ex-colleagues who probably assume
that I've been sitting at home tapping my fingers.
To accomplish the next
list in the next few months, I will need what ABBA so brilliantly sang of ---
"Money, money, money...... in a rich man's world."
house to have more space and light for indoor and outdoor concerts
to exotic locations and write reviews about them
- Entertain and hold more
So November 2002 is the seriously "looking for
ways to make money" month. If my readers have great ideas, please e-mail
me via Contact Webmaster.
Meanwhile, I'm finishing
reading a book about mind maps. I've drawn a few mind maps of what I value, what
irks me, and what I'd like to do. Next step is to translate these maps into reachable
goals. It would be so ideal to have a part-time job within walking or cycling
distance of where I live. Then I won't have to worry about keeping warm in the
long winter ahead.
After all is said and done, I can then look forward to
hearing "Thank You for the Music" instead.
