When I lived in Holland, MI this past semester my fabulous roommate had a poster of the world and it hung right next to my bed. When I move to New York I think I'll leave most of my posters and such things at home, but once I arrive I intend on ordering a world map. My geography has improved, but is still seriously lacking. I need to look at a map every day.
I would also like to invest in a bicycle [and a handy lock to go with it]. I have been looking at fold-up bikes so I could bike part of the way and taking public transportation without having to leave my bike behind, but there is still plenty of research to do.
And these shoes:
Barefoot running may be a phase, but it's one that interests me. I have been a barefoot kid for an extensive amount of time and throughout high school had attempted to run barefoot as much as possible. In an attempt to achieve the feeling I invested in extremely light weight shoes that were incredibly flexible (as my coach suggested). Yet, my balance is not particularly good and I have the problem of heel striking. A good personal trainer friend of mine did some research on these shoes and while eavesdropping on her practicing her presentation I began to have more faith in the Five Fingers.
I definitely intend to wait on the map until I get to the city so as not to ship it, but we'll see about the other two.
In other news I had work at 7:45 this morning and 8:15 tomorrow and yet, 1:30 I'm still awake. I just get excited about life around this time of night.
**Added the next day:
I would also like to add a hammock to the list of "things I've wanted for awhile," but it won't be a recent future priority... just always on the list.
