Here were the goals I planned on this year, and how they went:
  • Keep track of all the books I read--Done! 59 this year, which is an improvement over last year.
  • Finish applying to Starr King School for the Ministry, and hopefully begin classes in the fall.--This has been scrapped. It just wasn't taking the shape I needed.
  • Finish a crochet project.--Nope. Didn't even get it properly started.
  • Get a haircut I like.--Yup yup! A couple of different ones, in fact.
  • Get a new tattoo.--An awesome one, drawn by a dear friend and done on my birthday.
  • Start all the medical/dental stuff I've been putting off.--Sorta? I ended up switching insurance and doctors towards the end of the year, so I'm back at square one but moving more quickly.
  • Send more letters, post cards, packages, and flowers--at least something every month.--An utter fail.
  • Take a trip somewhere I've never been.--Another fail. I didn't travel anywhere near enough this year.
  • Decorate my apartment.--Which one? I moved a lot, and decorated a bit in each place.
  • Learn to make a new food.--Not a new food so much, but I did craft some new dishes, mostly involving throwing things together in a loaf pan and baking until they were food.
  • Find a local place to hang out outside of my apartment.--Sorta? I've moved about, so there's different spots now, but I have a few I like.
  • Take Nimbus to a park.--Done! He didn't care for it much.
So. Four wins, four fails, four halfway-theres. I think I aimed high this year, and the energy that could have gone into these went into some different things instead. Here are my other accomplishments of the year:
  • Changed jobs twice, doing a stint in foreign-language social media and then moving to a startup environment with some amazing people and a great vision.
  • Moved into SF proper, which has opened a bunch of doors.
  • Joined a Goddess church, which has been a lovely outpouring of community, a great way to honor my syncretic roots, and a wonderful connection to this time and place.
  • Became a published, paid author.
Lots to think about. I'm not sure yet what I want out of 2015.
