Well… I didn’t think I’d pass. I thought I needed more time to study, I thought I should put it off until next week. But last weekend my friend Dolly came over and helped me write a goal plan. She taught me how to better organise my thoughts, ideas and dreams and make them a reality. It’s one thing to write it all down, but one has to put a timeline on it, she says.

I was reminded of all the wonderful plans I had that never materialised. I am not exactly sure of what I want 100 per cent of the time,  but when I do know what I want I ought to make it happen. So, one of the first goals we drew up was for me to get my friggen licence. I’ve been meaning to do it for years, but have never gotten around to it.

But last weekend Dolly got me to put it down in writing and it was no longer just a plan, but a goal. It was my biggest priority this week, and I did it. I feel really good about this and am so grateful to have such an incredible friend. I swear to God, she’ll be famous for this kind of stuff one day.

This licence thing plays into a larger goal, which is to get into journalism full time… eventually. But first I need a license as most reporter jobs require a valid licence. But right now I’m happy with life as is, so I can use the next year to accomplish a bunch of goals before I make any big decisions. I’ve had a very rough year and only recently has it gotten really good, so the idea of fucking off from a great job and home life makes me sick.

So, here’s to a stable, goal-oriented life!

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.

  1. Yay! Congratulations on getting your learners. I was swamped decorating for my “haunted house” yesterday morning. I’ve reset my goal for Nov 15th as I have that day off with pay to make up for working on the stat. Yay!

    I’m really proud of you. You set the goal and you followed through. Good on ya!
