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!

As I gear up for travel (San Francisco! Sept. 6-9! Let's make plans!), a possible career change, a possible move, and a visit from the Poet, I feel the need to start writing more actively again. Things are afoot even if some of these changes don't pan out. September always feels like a new beginning, and I really am glad it's here this year. And once things have decided what will happen, I think I'll be glad to have recorded it. So, I'm going to shoot for at least once a week.

Haven't posted in a while, so here's the skinny.
--Moving back to NYC next week, staying with friends and then moving into my own place and bringing Nimbus down.
--Cadence and I are taking a break, sorta. 
--Working on the job situation.
--Working on finding UUs and pagans I mesh with in the city.
--Meeting up with Someone on the 4th, which should be interesting.
Off to the Quaker retreat for the weekend, see you all Tuesday! Have great weekends and stay safe.

A December-into-January update:
  • Moving plans have not  been finalized, but will hopefully be sorted by the end of this week. I will keep people posted with what I know when I know it. Ditto job situation.
  • Nimbus continues to grow and be adorable and loving and mischievous and fun. Right now, he's in the laundry basket!
  • I have acquired an inhaler to deal with chest tightness and breathing issues, so those should settle out soon.
  • I have rediscovered WoW and its addictiveness.
I have a set of goals for the season (Solstice through Equinox):
  1.  Move to Massachusetts.
  2.  Get a job in Massachusetts.
  3.  Submit a poem for publication somewhere.
  4.  Figure out what spiritual path I'm supposed to be following.
My overarching resolution this year is to be more mindful in everything I'm doing. I feel like 98% of my issues come from not being aware at the time of the impact of things I do (say, financially) or situations that I get myself into. I don't take the bigger picture into account, and I end up sick and broke and depressed. I can't necessarily fix or control all of these things, but by being aware I can be better prepared for anything that comes. Really, what I'm tired of is the "Surprise! You're screwed!" element that keeps popping up. Therefore, setting up extra precautions to deal with surprises.

Here's to a happy, healthy, and enriching 2011!

I. Am. So. AWAKE.
Also, I love being able to snap out of disordered eating. I can't always do it, but I did it tonight and I feel so much better.
Good group, great diner, nice ride with Kathryn, now home. Tired, but awake. I somehow feel like tomorrow is the beginning of something.
In a better mood than usual for sure.
