What I want in life:

More notes from my old notebook:

- A big circle of interesting friends who challenge me intellectually (growth), who share similar interests and who are reliable and willing to help

- A place where I can plug myself into and make a tangible difference in my community

- An absence of the stresses and problems of modern life (mostly urban issues)... loss of physical space, noise (and an absence of quiet green spaces), pollution, financial stress

- The ability to live freely and express myself (lots of jobs restrict this - professionalism is a waste of my life)
