Want Journal

I just finished reading The Wild Things, the novel adaptation of the movie and children's book, Where the Wild Things Are.  I absolutely loved the movie (and the soundtrack) and the novel was every bit as good.  One of the things that I really liked and wasn't in the movie, was a "want journal".  Max's dad gave him a journal for his birthday and on every page he wrote "I want" three times.  The only rule was that Max had to write something optimistic.

I decided to start my very own "want journal" and I think it's fantastic because even though some of my entries are intangible, it's almost like writing a list of goals without having think of it as a list of goals (which I hate writing).  So far I've been very happy with taking on this task each day and I think that it would be beneficial and fun for every one.

I WANT to make beautiful music.
I WANT to play in the snow.
I WANT to have my own studio.
