Outdoor Kid on the Couch
Outdoor kid stuck on the couch - three week challenge

Are you an outdoor kid or an indoor kid?  Putting aside that you may no longer be a ‘kid’…  I suppose we all probably oscillate between the two, but when it’s summertime, I sure love being an outdoor kid.  So, why am I stuck on the couch? Well, I went and sprained both my ankles.  Right when I was planning to take a chunk of vacation for outdoor fun.  I work full time and am going to grad school part time for library science.  My one month between my internship and my next round of classes is now clouded by my physical limitation.  I’ve already spent two weeks mostly sitting on the couch.  I’ve watched enough Hulu for a lifetime and I’m ready to be productive.  I made a list of things I hope to accomplish during my remaining time on the couch.  I like making lists and having goals.  I figured a blog is motivation to keep me accountable.  And a fun way to document what I might be able to accomplish. 

  • Start a blog - whew! Doesn’t it feel good to cross things off?
  • Learn some tech-y stuff (to be determined)
  • Play my ukulele and guitar
  • Cook and Bake
  • Paint
  • Write
  • Read
  • Make a Movie
  • Follow more library news
  • Not mope
  • Not watch too much Hulu
  • Knit


I saw my doctor today and he said it might be about three more weeks till I’m better.  Perhaps this is ambitious for three weeks, but let’s see what I can do!  I have the right to amend the list at any time, adding and deleting as I see fit. I’ll try to keep up with posting my results.
