For some reason this year I am all nesty and stuff, not really sure that nesty is a word but if it was a word it would mean -when one dose things to enhance ones home ie, holiday decorations and nostalgic feelings.
The last few years have been bahhumbug for me with little to no effort put in to the house and the decorations for the holidays. This year I have decorated outside, with some sort of driven focus that compelled me to hang ornaments from my outside tress too, and put up twinkle lights and faux trees on my porch. I am not sure what this sudden nesting is all about (no I am not pregnant, thanks for asking) I just want to feel more connected with my family and traditions I guess.
As the year draws to an end I sit here trying to remember the important things that happened this year, so far I have very little. My Dear Son, started high school this year, he did cross-country and seemed to like it alot. But other wise it was just one big blur of going to work , hating my job, coming home cooking dinner, going to bed, getting up and doing it all over again.
I need to make some moves next year that will bring me closer to the person I would like to be someday. First, it would help if I could find out what that looks like, being that I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, this task may prove to be a bit harder for me to get to the end game. But I do know that I would like to try going back to school, yet again. Well sorta, we live a few blocks from the Adult School and always get their flyers in the mail. This is the first time I have really thought about taking some classes for real.
I started out in graphic design many moons ago. But was not able to apply myself to going to class and never finished, hell I still owe them $$ for that and it was like 12 years ago (I know like to procrastinate, a lot) I am going to get that taken care of this year too, it is on my 2010 to-do list (I hope for spring semester). At the Adult School they are offering a cert program in graphic related software applications, that I am interested in learning. As part of my plan I am going to see if I can use my educational leave that I get every year and never use, from my company. I just have to convince them that it is some how related to my current job, which it is because the boss wants to start doing newsletters and stuff like that so graphic design and things like would be related.
When I sat down to write this post it was just going to be a simple wish for a good holiday for every one and it has turned in to me blabbing on about my plans for my life. I am not sure how it happened. But here is your holiday wish:
