This year I want to focus more on stuff to do and skills to build, so I plan to:
  • Keep track of all the books I read--I did this for 2013 and managed to get to a book a week average, which feels pretty awesome.
  • Finish applying to Starr King School for the Ministry, and hopefully begin classes in the fall.
  • Finish a crochet project.
  • Get a haircut I like.
  • Get a new tattoo.
  • Start all the medical/dental stuff I've been putting off.
  • Send more letters, post cards, packages, and flowers--at least something every month.
  • Take a trip somewhere I've never been.
  • Decorate my apartment.
  • Learn to make a new food.
  • Find a local place to hang out outside of my apartment.
  • Take Nimbus to a park.
Let's go!

  • Took a job that doesn't pay enough with a boss who I don't get along with
  • Joined a coven
  • Went to Philcon and had a fantastic time
  • Sang publicly for the first time since being on T

  • Continued raising the kitten
  • Lost a little weight

Generally, my overarching goal for 2011 was to increase the mindfulness and intention I bring to my life. I feel I succeeded in that goal. None of the things that have happened have been truly problematic, and I can see the path out of the difficult bits, which was so untrue last year that it hurt. All in all, I've done ok.

So. All is well here at MHC. This morning FacMan fixed the broken shade. Pen and I went out for dinner last night, and for lunch and some window shopping in NoHo today. Then, crew dinner and training, and signing up for first shifts. It's been busy. My phone activation code is here, so if you've been waiting for calls, you won't wait much longer. Tomorrow, a loooooooooong crazy afternoon and evening of crew training, and in the morning I've got to pick up my cap and gown and go buy my books.
Someone please remind me to eat lunch.

I have plane tix out of the South.One thing off the long long list standing between me and the sweetness of the Pioneer Valley.
I've also finally found a bloody radio station. And they remind me of my 'Cole. I wonder how she is.
