I got back from NYC about a week ago and I well and truly settled back in. I ended my last entry suggesting that I am planning another big adventure, and thoughts have been going through my head.
I do know that I am planning on going back to New York and hopefully next year. However, after speaking to Mum the other day, I have realized that I need an adventure in between now and then. Having a goal in mind helps keep me motivated and stops me from dwelling on things that I shouldn’t be dwelling on.
So, you may be asking what this next adventure could be. Well, funny you should ask. Here are some of the thoughts I have:
1. Continue to write my blog and expand on that to making it either an essay or a book (who knows? It could happen!).
2. Plan an event to raise awareness of FD. This would involve a lot of prep work and, as Mum said, there would have to be a lot of media attention beforehand.
3. Plan a fundraising event which involves a charity event, which would mean media attention and a hell of a lot of planning.
These are my thoughts at the moment, and I am sure more will come to me. But Mum raised an important issue. No one has heard of Familial Dysautonomia. Why would people want to give money towards a condition they know nothing about? Obviously you, the readers, know about it, but that’s a very small amount of people.
As you can see, there’s a lot to think about and consider. Keep in mind, I am back at work two days a week (hopefully 2.5 or 3 days at some stage), starting my masters in August and maybe moving again. There will be a lot going on, so before I make up my mind about the next big adventure, I need to consider whether I’d have the energy for it.
If you think any of these ideas are worthy of going forward with, please give me your feedback.
