Wow! I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I last blogged. I know we’re in November but I wanted to get a head-start on the goals I hope to accomplish next year. I love to hike, walk, chase waterfalls, go to the beach, camping, thrill seeking, etc. Goals are in no particular order.

LINKS ARE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY

1: Continue THERAPY (PRIORITY)

2: Visit the GRAND CANYON

3: Visit AMICALOLA FALLS STATE PARK, GEORGIA (Excellent blog post)

4: COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY (This really matters and I need to stop pretending that it doesn’t. I worked hard at getting my degree)

5: Blog more (Writing is something I’ve always loved to do)

6: Learn to play the PIANO (I found a decent piano, for beginners, from Amazon (PIANO). I can teach myself to play. Private lessons are expensive.)

7: Promote my book (Ways to PROMOTE your book)

8: Eat HEALTHY MEALS and EXCERISE more. (PRIORITY)

I’ve been trying to complete my degree, well since forever. There has been one thing after another that would force me to take a leave of absence. Those would eventually run out and I’d  end up having to withdraw. Last year it was due to complications after having my hysterectomy.

I decided to re-enroll because at this point in time, I have the opportunity to really focus on my studies. I know I cant predict  when something may happen but it’s a bridge I will cross once I get to it.  Continue reading “Back To School”
