new time and place

I thought that maybe when I moved away from everyone I would fall back into the habit of blogging as a way of keeping. Thus far this has not proven to be the case.

I do want to go back to the goals that I made on my birthday last year. They've been on my side bar all year. So I'm going to see how I did. I will make new goals for this year, but I don't think that I have it all figured out yet, so that may have to be a future post.

  • 1. Be in at least one production
Yes! I was Mabel in Pirates of Penzance! fun!
  • 2. Apply and get into summer program
I did apply and get waitlisted, but I did go to Egypt to visit Lisy. This is a goal for next year now.
  • 3. Win a competition
I did not win a competition, but I did win money in a competition
  • 4. Apply and get into Grad school
Yes! Totally accomplished! In Grad school!
  • 5. Blog weekly
hahahahahahahahahaha! ...... no
  • 6. Give a recital
Yes! I sang a recital of new music written by Michael Thorn in October!
  • 7. Stay in touch with friends
I think so...?
  • 8. Learn to knit or crochet
well you see...the thing is I tried, but then the cat swallowed a yard of my yarn, and I had to keep it in the closet, and I forgot about it. But for alittle bit there I was totally getting better
  • 9. Run 3 times a week
Sometimes I did well with this, sometimes not so much...this is a constant goal in my life, I'm happier when I run
  • 10. Mail Cards before Christmas
This was something of an epic fail. Noel and I decided to make a CD that we wanted to send as a christmas card, so I held off for that to be done....it's still not done
  • 11. Be useful at work
I got a fantastic review from my boss....so that's good. I always feel like I need to do more for them though.

Soo, lets see:
3 definite yeses
3 definite noes
the rest are somewhere in between.

I don't feel too too bad about this. I think that my most important goals were accomplished, namely I applied and got into grad school.

Oh! and I totally got an article published in a news paper!!!! (sorry the link to the actual article is long gone, it was published in November)

So here I am in Boston. A new adventure in a new city. I'll try to let everyone know how it goes.

Yaay, good to read something from you! And yeah, and wouldn't feel badly about those accomplishments, either. Striving for goals can sometimes be as important as actually reaching them, no?
