Princessly Poised Alice

Alice is a princess because…

  • She thinks outside the box.

nonsense

  • She keeps her cool (mostly) in a world of nonsense.

  • She is curious.

  • She is kind and helpful.

  • She’s a little sassy.

  • She has her moments of depression,
  • but she keeps on going.

Some of my favorite things from Alice in Wonderland:

  • The Mad Tea Party
  • “The Walrus and the Carpenter” – though it is a bit disturbing
  • The Doorknob
  • The White Rabbit is always late (just like me)
  • It’s not afraid to admit it’s nuts

  • “In a World of My Own”
  • “Painting the Roses Red”

My goals for the month inspired by Alice:

  1. Go to afternoon tea, or something similar.

2. Figure out and fix some of the nonsense in my life.

I’ve started this by quitting my second job, applying for a new position at my first job, taking my new medicine everyday and buying less food at work and working on a budget.

3. Add some nonsense back in. And by nonsense, I mean fun.

I had TWO weekends off this month, I went to the Renaissance Festival, I’ve started spending more time with Pippin, I started a Lunch Club with a co-worker and I’m seeing Hugh Jackman in concert TONIGHT.

I know these goals are rather broad, but I’m easing back into this slowly. And I can’t follow the logic of Alice completely, otherwise I would have NO goals at all.
