Quality Life

I was looking through my treasure box of sentimental things and found this thing. Ha! I wrote it for a school assignment in high school. I think my junior year.

Drift Wood
by Jacob Garn

     My future home will be a small two story home in the forest. The roof will be made of wood and the walls will be brick covered in moss. The house will have a very enchanted look to it. The windows will look old with lots of squares. There will be a wreath on the door. In the front yard there will be an old red bench. In the back yard there will be a windmill. There will also be a tree fort that my kids and I will make. My wife will have a flower garden that she will sing to every day because that's how flowers grow big and beautiful...duh.

     Within my house the walls will be covered with pictures of family and friends, and paintings that will warm my home and give it a kind of old style feel to it. All of the furniture in my house will be the kind of furniture that if it gets dented, it wont matter because it's already old and worn looking. The first thing everyone will see when walking in to my house is the family room with a fire place and an old piano. There will be two comfy couches and two recliners by the fire place, with easy axes to the book shelf right next to it. The family room will definitely be the place for chill'n. All of the bedrooms will be upstairs. I will leave the kitchen stuff to my wife. There will be a room where I will keep all of our instruments and where we'll also have a recording studio.

     My future children will dress in any way that they want to express themselves as long as it's not all black or something. I will do lots of fun activities with my kids. We will camp in our tree fort all the time. We will also be able to camp in the forest when ever we want and tell stories or sing camp fire songs on the guitar. My kids will have many talents. I'm going to teach them how to play all kinds of instruments and how to draw. When they can keep their balance well enough I'll take them snow boarding. I will also teach them how to skate board and wake board. By playing with my kids, we will be able to grow stronger as a family.

     In the future I will make money by recording and selling music, illustrating art for books and cd's and be a photographer. I plan on making enough money to take care of my family's needs and then their wants. I also plan on giving a small percent each month to fast offerings, and ten percent of whatever I make to tithing. I plan on going on at least two vacations a year with my family. For recreation we will do all kinds of stuff. We will run, hike, take our dog Jasper for walks, go camping, fishing, snow boarding, wake boarding, skate boarding, flying kites etc. By having enough money to take care of all the things I need to take care of, I can improve my life and my family's life by having a good atmosphere for us to learn and grow.

      I don't have to reconcile my quest for money and things with a quality life and significant relationships because I can have both. I can have both by having a job without long hours that pays me enough to be wealthy, that way I can still have a quality life and a significant relationship with my family. And because I'll like my job, that adds even more to my quality life.

LOU CORONA "Principles of Life" part 4 & 5



Dolphins aren't smart.

"Dolphins get a lot of good publicity for the drowning swimmers they push back to shore, but what you don’t hear about is the many people they push farther out to sea! Dolphins aren’t smart. They just like pushing things."  - Dwight Schrute

my life according to "Midlake"

Using only SONG names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions. Pass it on to at least 10 people. You can't use the band I used. Try not to repeat a song title. (It's a lot harder than you think!) Repost this as "My life according to (band name)"

Pick your Artist: Midlake

Describe yourself: Balloon Maker

How do you feel: I Guess I'll Take Care

Describe where you currently live: In This Camp

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Chasing After Deer

You and your best friends are: Bandits

What’s the weather like: It Covers The Hillsides

If your life was a TV show, what would it be called: The Jungler
Thought for the day: Some Of The Were Superstitious
I pick everyone that reads this. Let me know if you decide to do it so that I can see. :D
