Ryann Reflections

A glimpse into the life of one anti-social stripper nerd.

step one...

I’m goal orientated. On a resume it sounds very productive. In application it often means I have the ability to pursue a goal with tunneled ambition. I have been highly effective, yet blind. I’ve spent the past year reevaluating my goals. I hope I’m on the right track. I want to be on the right path.

I am trying to be objective and consider all aspects. I don’t want to be financially struggling in school again. I want my debts to be minimal. I want my independence to be secured. I want my higher education. I want a dynamic and fulfilling career.

Step one- apply.

I want a life. I want to feel productive. I want to spend time with friends and be involved in my community. I want to be in a position to make the changes. I want potential for something real.
I think I might be heading in that direction. I hope so…

    Go for it, and keep your eye on the prize! I think striving to be better than what we are is meritorious, and a great gift for the ones we love and will love.
    If we all tried to be better personally, spiritually, professionally...etc wouldn't it be a nicer place to live?
    Thank you for some inspiration today!

    God bless,

    I'm good at keeping my eye on the prize.
    I'm bad at remembering to pay attention to reality at the same time.

    Ok, one eye on prize, one eye on reality.

    It's a fine balance between looking to new things ahead while still living your day. You can do it though! Optimism is the first step!!

    Answer this for me.. what do you want to be when you grow up?

    I still can't answer it. Pitadork suggested a book to me and I give the same suggestion to you. Try reading "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle. Try it .. you may like it.

    what do I want to be...

    academic snob.
    primary income.
    creative and independent.
    serve a greater purpose.

    .. that's a start.

    That all? :P

  • At 8:48 AM, Blogger Ryann said…

    nope :P

    I just found your blog this morning. Great reading, so great writing. As an over-educated, primary incomer, good luck in your quest to attain these lofty goals. But better luck on finding the greater purpose.

    The problem with being overeducated and actually having a primary income is that most of the people around you seem inane and purposeless(sp?).

    That is why I continue to read your blog "ryann", because your writing actually proves that there are people out there with original, interesting thoughts.

    It really is hard being perfect ;)

    You say you want to be involved with your community? I thought you were! What is this Exotic Dancers for Cancer thing then? Is that not involvement with your community? What about the people you touch with your words everyday? Can we be considered friends? We all share the common ground of writing. (Some more gifted than others at expressing themselves) I am not saying your wrong for feeling unfulfilled or like your not making a big impact on the world around you. No matter how big a stone you throw into a pond it still makes a wave.

    gadzilla, it's a start. I'm not saying my current involvments are trivial, just that I used to do so much more. I know when I am stable and in a routine I am capable of more... in time it will come together. I'm not worried about that.

    sanchez, I think I like you better these days.
