This blog is called Hippie Itch. The name came to me one random night when I couldn’t sleep and realized that I needed to fulfill my ‘hippie’ appetite. This includes a little this and a little that – going ‘green’, DIY projects, volunteering, maybe more?
I plan to volunteer at a variety of places and document my adventures here. I’m hoping this will help me really get a feel for what I might like to do with my life since my current career is unfulfilling (and not ‘hippie’). Next Saturday is my first event. I’m heading to BARK (Bandit’s Adoption and Rescue of K-9’s) Farm to volunteer. I can’t wait to see what happens!
This morning I started off 2012 with a 5k. It was awesome! At points I felt strong, weak, woozy, exhausted, excited, and proud. I’m thinking my new journey is going to be similar. I love me some change but changing careers after all that schooling? Yikes. All I know is I want to help someone or something. I want to do something that matters. I want to be proud of my contributions.
I hope you can join me in my adventures towards a more fulfilling life!
