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......
