Looking Back….

As the year 2011 comes to an end I wanted to take a minute and reflect on a few things.  This year has flown by and in a way I am glad to see it go.  Not that anything went really bad this year but I am looking forward to a fresh start.  2011 I changed jobs in March and it ended up being a blessing.  I am blessed to have great friends and wish I could see you all more often :0)

I had the opportunity to go back to school this year.  After being out of school for many, many years I really thought it was going to be worse than it was.  I lucked out and believe you me when I tell you that I am really enjoying it.  Not sure if it is because I have grown up and now know that I need a degree to get anywhere or that I just needed a change.  Either way I a continuing on next quarter and am hoping by winter quarter I can finish up with a degree in Communications.  What will I do with this degree….you will have to continue to watch my blog to see. I do know that my english class made me feel like I was smarter than a fifth grader :0)

My photography did pretty well this year and I am looking forward to making a few changes there as well.  My goal for this year is to get published in a national magazine.  This year I printed a few of my own magazines and that to me was a great success.  I want to see my name in the tag line on a book shelf at Borders, Books A Million or even the grocery store.  I can do this.  I am going to visit a few people I know that own businesses and see if I can add some of my art work into their shops.  I am going to talk to a few other businesses and see if I can redecorate their offices.  Maybe even see if I can do a showing some where when the Oregon has its gallery hops this spring and summer.  This next year I want to focus on my work.

I am also going to work on me.  This year I was put on BP meds.  Good news is they are working bad news is I have to remember to take them.  So far I have been and it has helped out a lot.  I plan to do more about my health this year as well.  I am going to get back in the gym.  Work on my 1200 calories and no more eating after 7.  That is tough one when I don’t get off work till then.  But It will work out the way it is suppose too.

I could go on but I will save that for another blog.

Till Next Time……

One thought on “Looking Back….

  1. I’m glad to hear everything went pretty well for you this year. The hardest thing for me is not eating at night as well, especially when my friends are over. I’ve gotten better but I want to to get to a point where I will, “just say no.”I’m not going to stop until it happens:)) Great post, I’m looking forward to more:))
