What I Want to Do: Help people


 
My Page Billboard

It was about four years ago that I decided the only thing that really matters in life is helping people. People are a good investment, they are the only investment you can make in this world that is eternal. I am trying to figure out what that means for me. I am about half way finished with college and I am still trying to decided what I want to do. I am torn between about ten things! Non-profit stuff, heritage managment, anthropology, missions, resource managment, museum science, creative writing, and I'm sure there will be more tomorrow. I love learning and I'm not afraid to admitt that I am a huge nerd. I love NPR and PBS. I love Car Talk and watching Discovery Channel. I want to make a difference in the world, I want to feel that my life matters. My kids are the cutest kids in the world, they are so precious and amazing. My husband is my rock, without him I truly would be lost. He is also a huge nerd and I love him so much.

Quotation "...All these environmental problems are coming from consumption, but consumption is a function of what? Of rushing! "Give it to me quick, I want mores stuff and I want it right away!" We need to slow down and enjoy the moment, rather than these highly caffeinated people that are rushing around...where are they going? They're running around like they're insane; they're honking and impatient...leave earlier for God's sake! What is this madness of honking at somebody? You'd need some sort of extremely accurate atomic clock to measure the shortest amount of time recorded, which is from when a light turns green to when somebody honks at you in Los Angeles. It's insane!" Ed Begley, Jr in Energy Times March 2007

"Why am I afraid to dance, I who love music and rhythm and grace and song and laughter? Why am I afraid to live, I who love life and the beauty of flesh and the living colors of the earth and sky and sea? Why am I afraid to love, I who love love?" The Great God Brown by Eugene O'Neill
