On Lifetime Goals - Part 3 (?)

This might be the first lifetime goal I've shared. I was reminded about this lifetime goal by viewing the video available here, which is this totally incredible video of this totally average fellow doing this totally awful dance in front of this totally stunning number of travel destinations all in just over three minutes.

It's pretty cool.

It's also pretty famous so please no hatin' on me for linking it. I am absolutely not claiming to be some superduper unique internet user who just "found" this amazing thing. A friend of a friend of a friend of a friend sent it to me the other day. Several years later than the cool kids in school got a copy.

So ... my lifetime goal is to spend a winter in Barrow, Alaska. Sometime. It would be even better if I was going to try to do this without internet access or without other modern electronic distractions. But I'm not that cool. For me this idea is just about spending a very long period of time in a very forbidding place, climatologically (sp?) speaking. I wonder how my generally cheery disposition will hold up after month after month of darkness. My expectation is that so long as the northern lights show up from time to time, I'll be so in awe of the nature all around me that I'll be fine. Of course if my poker play goes poorly (as it most generally does), maybe I'll go Red Rum on everyone.

Anyway, here's a couple of pictures of some woman up there (according to the internet) that I found.

She doesn't even change her clothing per season. Maybe she's unemployed.

I knit and I also know how to knit cable design. Let me know when you are scheduled to leave and I will knit you a sweater. You have the liberty to choose cable knit or plain.

I'd expect that sweater to arrive shortly after my tarot card reading is completed.

It's coming Garrett, I promise.

I got a new job. I just found out today. Working with some pretty top notch people. I start Thursday. I am kind of nervous.

Great site. My great passion is personal development and hypnosis and was wondering if you would like to take a look at my site self-hypnosis?
