Things I've Always Wanted To Do

  • Study and write Japanese poetry with a Japanese poet.
  • Take Enka lessons.
  • Take dance lessons.
  • Direct a music video.
  • Write a kick-ass song (I'm waiting for my rocket to come.)
  • Paint with a huge canvas and lots of oils.
  • Write/compile a book of reflections together with a photographer.
  • Organize and direct a concert/event/bash with a budget.
  • Start a charity foundation and set up a support system for it (fundraise!)
  • Update the 12FS; create a simple, modern, attractive package for youth and businesspeople.
  • Sing and dance in a musical.
  • Write, direct, perform, and film a full-length play with song and dance; something that will be thought provoking and heart-touching. (Let's harness the arts in our witness!) Tour colleges, schools, festivals, and halls. Sell a video production.
  • Compile and edit a book of personal prayers and praises to Jesus, and include contributor's names and reflections.
  • Have a blog in Japanese with updates on my missionary life, the projects I'm involved in, etc.
  • Have a business doing design work for Family homes that can afford a monetary investment.
  • Have enough material to compile and design a (strongly Christian) inspirational book mostly featuring quotes and portions from here and there, with 365 pages, each containing and completing a succulent inspiration for the day. I have a feeling I'd never be able to publish or commercialize anything like this, since there'd be too many copyright restrictions, but I'd like to make one for myself and people in the Family.
  • Study design from experts. (And probably quit when it starts getting too technical. Haha!)
  • Have the means to support other people on the ground with their projects.
  • Organize and help with the compilation of material for seminars and workshops on practical skills, success in business, work ethics for Family teenagers.
  • Own a pen-tablet.
  • Learn piano with a teacher.
  • Train with a vocal trainer. Singing, enunciation, speaking, breathing...
  • Set up a printing center.
  • Live in a small house.
  • Teach Literature, composition and Language Arts to teens.
  • Pin-down an opening for a particular witnessing tool, go to work making it, and get active advertising, promoting, and marketing it.
  • Write a screenplay for a movie (together with other writers).
  • Have a lot of cool talks with a make-up artist.
  • Take acting lessons.
  • Work the cash register at a supermarket.
  • Get better at public speaking.
  • Figure out a good balance between humility and confidence.
  • Find my way around a sewing machine. (And then...make stuff.)
  • Learn (maybe not so much study as...do) interior decorating.
  • Take a marketing course.
  • Find out "what things are really like in WS."
  • Study psychology.
  • Write a duet for me and someone else (with someone else in mind).
  • Have someone design a dress for me.
  • Direct filming and especially live televising (Learn what the heck this entails).
  • Learn film editing.
  • Sing in a choir.
  • I would be mildly interested in photography if I didn't have a little brother who was so annoyingly good at it.
  • (Also, webdesign.)
  • Acquire an amazing Japanese vocabulary.

Flo Babes!

That Kibou song you did, where you sing the chorus, and he raps? My wife and I really love the chorus, but unfortunately we hate rap.

Perhaps you could do a song entirely in the style you sang that chorus. It`s very sweet!

I love Jesus! And when I get a record company, I`ll sign you up right away!
