12 by 2012

I'm still here! I'm still alive! And today, for the first time in a long, long while, I felt inspired to blog. In part, because I need some space from work, work, work, work, work, which has been my life for the past six months. And for another, I discovered Twelve by 2012 and felt motivated to create my own list.

1. Blog: update and rethink blog with steps taken/initiated toward new design for the new year.
2. Academics: Complete my grad. level PSU class with an A and a possible publication.
3. Painting: Finish painting the bedroom sky blue, the guest bedroom hazel green, the hallway a turquoise/teal and the downstairs a creamy latte/chocolate brown.
4. Donate old clothes and books.
5. Host a friend's Thanksgiving: Invite people over for a Thanksgiving potluck the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.
6. Host some thank-you dinners for friends who have been super helpful in the past month of stress and madness.
7. Unpack.
8. Buy a washer and dryer.
9. Buy a new phone and get set up on family plan and teacher discount.
10. Take real steps toward the next big project (to be clarified later). 
11. Start taking photographs and publishing them again.
12. Go to yoga at least 7 times.

I will post back with progress. I'm looking forward to Goal 1. I probably have no readers anymore, but I have a lot to write about and share.
