Weighing It All Up

Ever feel like there simply aren't enough hours in a day?


There's just so much I want to do. There's no way I'm going to be able to find the time to do it all. I'm hard-pressed finding time for a short soak in the tub, let alone all the other stuff I want to do.

I train in Chinese martial arts. I train in (occasionally) Western martial arts. I am taking violin lessons. I write.

I want to take ballroom dancing again. The boys at Kung Fu have gotten quite into playing war with Airsoft guns... it sounds like fun, actually - though I really, really dislike guns. I kinda want to try that too. I want to take up orienteering again. I want to take up trail running again (stupid broken foot). I want to hike the West Coast Trail. I want to do an eco-challenge style race. I want to learn rock-climbing, rappelling, caving...

Gah! Too much stuff, too little time!

Too little money.

Here's a question. If time and money weren't issues, what is it you would do?


A beast dealer; Northern England.
- James Halliwell's Dictionary of Archaic and Provincial Words, 1855

Jockeyed, cheated; tricked in trade; jockeying, cheating, deceiving in trade.
- John Boag's Imperial Lexicon of the English Language, c. 1850

If money and time weren't an issue, I would:
- get second language training
- learn photography
- hire a personal trainer to help get me in shape
- visit mom's family in other countries
- travel and see how big this world really is
- build a cottage
