Look At This Stuff. Isn’t It Neat? Wouldn’t You Think My Goals Are Complete?

Here’s a look at my month with Ariel so far.

Seen in: The Little Mermaid, 1989

Website: https://princess.disney.com/ariel

My favorite songs:

  • “Part of Your World”
  • “Part of Your World (Reprise)”
  • “Poor Unfortunate Souls”
  • “Kiss the Girl”
  • OK, and all the others…

My favorite things about Ariel:

  • Her hair (this seems to be a common theme)
  • She has a tail and her address is the ocean
  • Her bravery and courage
  • She’s a hoarder
  • Her bff is Flounder, who is adorable
  • Ariel knows what she wants (she literally sings a song about it)

Ariel’s most depressing moments:

  • When her hoard is destroyed:

  • When Vanessa (aka Ursula in disguise) puts Eric under her spell and sets sail to marry him:

My goals inspired by Ariel:

1. Do something to support the ocean

Status: Complete.  I bought a bracelet from 4ocean – they clean up the trash polluting our oceans and shores so Ariel can swim

2. Go swimming, like duh

Status: Not started, which doesn’t make a lot of sense considering there’s a pool in my backyard

3. Make these sand dollar cookies

Status: Not started, but soon because… cookie

4. Encourage/raise/promote my voice

  • send an essay out for publication
  • find a way to expand my blog
  • go a day without speaking… see what Ariel had to deal with for 3 days

Status: Not started. I need to gather up all my change first to see what blog plan I can afford. I also need to get my butt in gear and go to the library and write and/or edit an essay. Shouldn’t be too hard, right? And for not talking for a whole day, I’m hoping to do this, but it is hard when you work with people every day. I’ll think of something.

5. Listen to music. I’m weird about music. I don’t really like to listen to it unless I’m in a certain mood. Depression makeslistening to music even more of a thing. There’s a lot of music in The Little Mermaid and so I thought this would be a fitting month to listen to music at least once a day. I think it’s good for you. I’m sure there’s a study about it somewhere.
