Anyhow, my new boss is a colleague from my group. He completed an MBA recently and has been doing half process engineering, half management in the interim. He has grown a lot as an employee since I started working and has become really pleasant to work with, so I'm hoping we can manage to build from where we are and not screw things up. (This week, he's still bribing us with chocolate...) My former boss got promoted to a higher management level, and I think these choices will be good for us.
As for the not-work stuff, I need to set some goals. Resolutions if you will.
- Finish my handy project around the condo
- Figure out long term financing for the condo
- Continue to work with organizer to polish my space
- Date! Try to date at least 4 guys (or so, until I hit it off with someone. Please send any likely candidates my way.)
- Continue to dance and work out whether or not I lose weight.
- Find a way to blow glass at least 6X this year
- Bake stuff (again, at least 1/month)
- Visit my grandmother, and call her at least every 2 weeks
- Keep up with my B12 shots, try to resolve lingering issues.
- Continue to make local friends and keep existing friends.
- Outside the top movie marathon, see at least 1 movie a month
I will also be getting #1 wisdom tooth pulled, leaving me with 1 remaining (#32), but that's not really a goal.
With all my "at least once a month" items, I should really start scheduling stuff in, like a regular baking night, movie night, glassblowing weekend, etc... That list isn't even full of all my wishlist items, but it was starting to get crazy long. I should also add "get back to blogging more" but can consider it a sub-task to 'keep friends'. If any of you have "visit friend in SoCal" on your to do list, I have a couch you can crash on, and no particular travel plans as yet (although still hoping for Boston in April or so.)
Share any heartfelt or unusual resolutions you've come up with this year, or tell me what you think of mine - overdoing it or just right?
