think about the heroes saving life in the dark
climbing higher through the fire
time was running out
never knowing you weren't going to be coming down alive...
think about the chance I never had to say
thank you for giving up your life that day
never fearing only hearing voices calling out
let it all go the life that you know just to bring them down alive...
...wanna make a change right here right now
wanna live a life like you somehow
wanna make your sacrifice worthwhile

10. Stay as close as you can to the stuff you want to see--otherwise you waste time traveling back and forth.
9. Pack light. If you think you've already packed light, take 1/3 of the stuff out of your suitcase.
8. Pay for a taxi instead of taking luggage on public transportation (i.e. bus or metro).
7. Bring a first-aid kit including at minimum: Pepto, Tylenol and band-aids.
6. Try as many different foods as you can (this is much easier if you stay healthy, unlike me on my trip).
5. Buy and follow a good guide book (Rick Steves is awesome)!
4. Carry a notebook and write down what statues, monuments, churches etc. you see each day so it will be easier to label photos later.
3. Don't stress about seeing everything. Pick two or three things to see each day and really enjoy them.
2. Getting upgraded to first-class--especially on an international flight--is one of the best things that can ever happen to you.
1. If you want to go...just go, baby!

I love this song--and all of Jon Schmidt's music for that matter (check him out on YouTube). A frisnd posted this on her blog months and months ago and wever since I have been going there to listen to this song while I'm at work during the day. I figured it was time to share this gem on my own blog. I hope you enjoy it.

And, thanks friends for keeping me company and making my boat of singledom a little less solitary.

Yesterday about 14 of us from the office spent the morning working with Habitat for Humanity. We worked on the landscaping of a home for a family from Hawaii. They have 7 children and will be able to move into their new house in about 1 week.
Did I mention my employer pays me to organize this kind of thing? Yeah, I think it's kinda cool too.

So, among some of the goals I have chosen to work on this year is one that I would like to share with y'all. I have resolved to do something productive when I get home after work before I sit down to relax (most of the time this means watching a few hours of TV). Here are a few things I thought of to do--or have been doing when I get home:
- empty or load the dishwasher
- start a load of laundry
- sort the mail
- tidy up the living room
- hang up the clothes piled on the chair in my bedroom
What little productive things do you have to add to my list?
