07:32 pm - travel
I just spent the last 3 hours looking at gap year projects, adventure holidays, conservation holidays. My desire to travel has increased very suddenly, but i think its the desire for a change of scene and the need to feel alive. After 3 hours of looking what did i conclude? That its very expensive esp if you do it through an organisation. If you have an idea what you want to do its easy to sort out, if you dont than be prepared to be swamped by millions of websites
I should play the lottey or find a rich guy so i can afford to do all these things i want to do
12:56 pm - self improvement 2009
Last year had some brilliant ups but some horrible lows. This year could be quite exciting. I will get a replacement car for my corsa in the next month or 2. I may get on the property ladder, i may get a dog.
I woke up this morning craving a big adventure, sure life is one big adventure, but i want to go somewhere, see something awesome. But if my plans for house come together i wont have any money to do it. I also dont have the direction, where the hell would i go? who with? whats the goal?
Whilst i will try to have an adventure, i have decided to try to work and monitor some self improvement. So being there is 12 months in a year, i thought i would work one 1 thing a month. Hopefully they will carry forward to the next month and by the end of the year i will be a better person. Because quiet frankly i am lacking in some moral fibre, i drove by an recent accident the other day and i didnt even roll my window down to check to see if they needed helped. To be fair there were like 3 other cars attending, but that doesnt make it any better. I'm also just getting older, so maybe i should grow up, get some good habbits, and start looking after myself.
so here is the list in no particular month order, also i might change some to make them better, when i think of other areas i want to work on.
1. make the bed every day
2. get my 5 a day fruit and veg
3. update my lj at least 3 times a week, even if the entries arent that long
4. exercise 3 times a week- running, walking, cycling who cares. And exercising dogs at work doesnt count :(
5. go through my room in emsworth and get rid of the all the junk- charity shop it, organise it, sell it etc
6. write letters to overseas friends, send them snail mail
7. make christmas gifts
8. develop some form of grooming ritual, i.e. make sure i brush my hair, moistures daily, you know standard things people do to look after themselves
9. call old friends up i havent spoken to for a while, and call some people rather than msn then
10. be veggie for a month
11. get changed out of my work clothes every evening
12. spend as little as possible/ save as much as possible
basically after my bros death, there are a few things i want to work one:
- sort out all the junk from my room and house- get rid of all the stuff i dont use or wear
- organise my photos/ print them off
- take more photos
- start a family history
I might also try other things too, like more volunteering.I should also try to go camping with my friends etc too
Heres to a brighter year

11:18 am - update
Ok so a lot has happened over the last few months
Firstly i have no internet. This is because i moved out of my parents house and in to my flat near petersfield (you are all welcome to come and stay) I did this to start my kick ass job. My first 2 weeks of my job was tough, very tough, because i was thrown in the deep end with no training and it was pretty crazy stuff. But my co workers are all nice and the dogs are very cute.
I went on holiday with my parents to canada for 10 days, that was kick ass it was like the best bits of america with no yanks. I went to Vancover. The city is great, its small enough to walk around, the scenery is great, and you can get very very cute sea buses around places. There is a large amount of organice food in canada which is really nice. We then rented an rv and went to vancover island where we sent a few days relaxing by the beach. We then drove up to telegraph cove and went whale watching. We saw loads of humpback whales everywhere. We were trying to find some orcas but no whale tour found any, we think they had been displaced by the group of 70 orcas that came through the day before. We saw sea lions, seals, dolphins, it was really nice
we drove to the pacfic rim national park and went walking n rain forsests and along the beaches. Living in an rv is very nice
I came home, and this week at work they started to train me up properly. I;ve been giong in to town with dogs to train. I've been teaching them tasks like opening washing machine doors. Its awesome.
i think theres still rats in my walls but other than that its all good. i feel happy but knackered at the moment. even though i dont have the internet i still check email/lj at work but i dont have too long to reply!

This week basically consisted of a huge amount of films at the cinema, Monday Pirates, Tues Ocean 13, Wed Spiderman 3. On the Monday Prince Will was at the cinema too, different screen but he was there with his squad and bodyguards. Bit concerned he needs bodyguards as well as his trained killer friends
Thursday I saw Kim and we spoke no stop for 3 hours. It was awesome
Friday felt so rough, lots of sleep in the evening
Saturday go to jane and dans. Spend the morning making the ferret roulette bin. Basically a rubbish bin with 6 pipes coming out of the bottom. Idea being that you put a ferret in the middle if it comes out of your chosen pipe you win a sweet. We also spent the morning, playing with baby ferrets and running around like headless chickens. We sent the afternoon running a stall in the trent fete, it was good fun. We made more than we did last year too. The weather was good, it only rained when we packed up. Quick trip to spoons for a well deserved meal and then off to bed.
Today, i went to the kingston maurwood show and had career advice about teaching, first aid courses etc. I ate good food, watched police dogs and gun dogs, stroked lots of dogs and laughed at a dobeman who refused to go down stairs.
so over the weekend i got a letter from guide dogs inviting me to a 2 day assessment day at leamington spa. Harrah. so in the assessment day there will be 2 activites leading blind people, 3 dog activites, 1 exam and some group work
EPPP, i'm sure it will be fine

So i'm feeling pressured to join the Dorset Wildlife Trust. Mainly because thats the only way i can access the dormouse people, and other animal groups that they wont let you access unless your a member. There really unhelpful, but i'm a member maybe they will be ultra helpful.
So i have decided to folk out my 30 pound a year, tho i feel like being cheaty and joining as a student. I am a student of life.
The thing is you can join for life at 550. Which is 18.3 years at the rate of 30 pounds. So providing you live longer than 18.3 years your a winner. If you live until your 90 or something your a real winner, but it depends on just what you get for your money
