As the big Fancy Face 3-0 birthday approaches, I took some time thinking about the things I’d like as I move along into adulthood.
–a steady, secure, challenging and interesting career that pays me what I need to support myself and then some
–a new pair of Warby Parker glasses
–the strength to feel ok with myself and know that I’m good enough (thanks, Stuart Smalley)
–tickets to see The Mowglis in July
–the ability to finally let down the walls I’ve built up that make it hard for me to let people in
–a gift certificate for more writing classes at Gotham Writers Workshop
–a loving, secure relationship (there are gift certificates for that too, right…?)
–to continue to develop my skills as photographer
–the ability to help those I need to help
–the ability to let others help me
–success with my writing, by which I mean publication and payment
–and a pretty new haircut
It’s not too much to ask for in the scheme of things. Right?
