2018 Goals and January Goals

We have a bit of catching up today. I have so many words to share with you. My employer was closed from December 23 – January 1 for a combination building maintance/holiday break, so I traveled home to New Jersey for the first extended time since I moved to California (nearly!) a year ago.

That all said, these are a bit late —

18 for 18

  • Take a Spanish language class
  • See the Santa Barbara Fiesta parade
  • Take a NJ/PA trip
  • See a professional play
  • Celebrate K+F’s wedding
  • Call LB, LC, and Mike O. 3x a month.
  • Call NS 1x a month
  • Read American Wife (Curtis Sittenfeld)
  • Catch-up on The Austen Project books
  • Plan a vacation
  • Join a museum/social group
  • Earn the Stadia Board ranking with USGS National Map Corps.
  • Sign-up for a LAPL card
  • Camp the Channel Islands
  • Read 50 books
  • Get a fire extinguisher for my apartment
  • Pay off my rogue student loan and pay off half of my alternative student loan balance
  • Replace/Invest in my footwear – (those $12.99 Target flats are no longer cutting it, no matter how cute/cheap they are)

My word of 2018 is Celebration. I know, “How hard is celebrating things” but for me it is kind of difficult. 

2018 Races

And as for January 2018

  • Read 3 books
  • Complete my Library Journal/BL reviews queue
  • Assemble the bookcase
  • Confirm new insurance with my practioners
  • Sign-up for a YMCA membership and start going
  • Submit paperwork to attend ALA Midwinter
  • Host my friend KW on his work trip
  • Go through the last three moving boxes


Go forth and be awesome.
