So, I fell off the wagon of my list of 20. Uh-oh. What to do, what to do? I am going to pick myself up and get back on that wagon! I didn't do most of what I wanted to do, but I realized that this is not just about completing a list of things, it's about discovering who I am and what is important to me. I did learn things about myself and actually completed some. Here are some of the things that I've done (not all but some).
I did start a doctoral program. I was fortuante to find a program that works with professionals. I have finished two classes. Due to the the classes that I have already completed for my education specialist degree, I'm already half way to comps!!
I also did travel. I hit the four state goal! I went to Cincy, Ohio one night after work. Not a very far drive, and I will leave it at that ;). I went to Rhode Island. I was able to see some family and some of my birth state. Love that place! Unfortuantly I hurt my leg even worse while running in Newport and that has stopped any long distance running for awhile. On the journey back to K-Town from Little Rhody, I made a pit stop in Hershey! It was an overnight stay and then a wonderful excursion to the chocolate factory. My fourth state was Oooooooooooooo-klahoma! I made my first of many trips out there for school. I honestly haven't seen much of the state, just Tulsa, well really just the ORU campus. I was able to go to one of the basketball games. Not a big bball follower, but they won so that made it fun.
I have also tried to support my students more by going to football and basketball games. I will be going to the spring musical. The production this semester: The Wizard of Oz! Anyone who knows me, knows that is my all time favorite movie!! I have it memorized, no one can change my opinion about it.(I know that my brother and sister secretly love that movie too, they just aren't as vocal about it.) I think that movie had something to do with my obsession of shoes. Luckily for Christmas my sister, brother-in-law and nieces got me a Wizard of Oz snuggie.
I'm sure there is more that I've done, but can't think of it right now. I've decided that I'm not going to limit myself to a list. I don't do well with lists. I'm going to do what is important to me and what I want to do. Those are my new life goals!
