So Many Choices, So Little Time

Lately all I can do is sit here and plan my next move. Do I backpack across Europe? Should I start that novel? Maybe finish my MFA in Interpretive Dance? People told me I could do anything, they just didn’t tell me what.


But I need to distinguish myself somehow. I just seem to blend in here.

    Some days its better to just sit and watch the grass grow.

  4. Never has a blogpost summed up my situation so succinctly. “People told me I could do anything, they just didn’t tell me what” is going to be my new motto! Thank you, NTMTOM!

  5. You can just SEE that froggie sighing with indecision…..and perhaps a touch of ennui, non?

    Pensive frog is pensive…

  7. Aww, never seen a frog so relaxed before.

  8. Kermit The Frog said it best:

    It’s not that easy being green
    Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
    When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow, or gold
    Or something much more colorful like that

    It’s not easy being green
    It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
    And people tend to pass you over
    ‘Cause you’re not standing out
    Like flashy sparkles in the water
    Or stars in the sky

    But green’s the color of spring
    And green can be cool and friendly-like
    And green can be big like a mountain
    Or important like a river
    Or tall like a tree

    When green is all there is to be
    It could make you wonder why
    But why wonder why wonder
    I am green, and it’ll do fine
    It’s beautiful, and I think it’s what I want to be
