2011 Recap and a Giveaway!

Damn. What an amazing year.


January is a time for reflection. Something about getting a new calender has that effect. Sit back, try to relax, and focus on the good things. There's no point in dwelling on the negative. This was a milestone year filled with change and growth.


New job. New home. The birth of my adorable nephew. And of course, the official start of something magical.

Are you still dwelling on the negative? Stop it. If you don't like something, make a battle plan and do something about it. I don't believe in "resolutions." It makes it sound like you did something wrong and need to amend it. Screw that man. Recap of last year:

Take 6 week course Done
PMP certificate.Finishing next month (damn earthquake)
Comptia Project Plus exam in January.  Already working on that PMI status
Have my left side checked. Got it looked at after the snowboarding crash
Finish my sketchbook and submit it. Submitting
Find a volunteer organization. Homeward Trails
Travel. Stayed in country



Feels good to scratch those off- I love making lists and attacking them. There's satisfaction in knowing things got done. I need to put more thought into this year's battle plan. I know stepping up my language game is on there. The boy and I are working on French and I would like to polish my Portuguese. Plus, I need to get dual American-European citizenship so I won't need a work visa overseas. Hooray for fob parents! We also plan on being a kitten foster home, aka. the kitty hotel. Plans poppin, moo ha ha ha. 


To welcome in the new year, I would like to give you a present: this hella cute kitchen towel set from World Market. I hope you like them! It's 2 towels and a pot holder.
