With a new year coming up, I’ve been thinking about the changes I want to make for my life. I realize that most people do this every year, but I’ve always been on the stance that it’s good to make GOALS, not these broad resolutions (i.e. lose weight, save money).
In 2008, it seems that everyone was taken by surprise in a horrible way. I don’t want that to happen to me, whether it’s in my personal life or in my career. So I’ll be spending the next few weeks thinking about what goals I ought to be making for next year that will keep me prepared for just about anything.
And really 2008 was pretty good:
- I went to South Korea for an entire month. Not only did I get to experience a new culture, I got to do an awesome project for the newspaper about the popularity of Northwest sweet cherries there.
- UNITY 2008 in Chicago. I got to know some of the AAJA Seattle crew better and made some new friends from other parts of the country. Also I learned a whole lot about multimedia, reporting and doing a kick ass job everyday.
- I ran the Royal Victoria Marathon (half-marathon!). I ran it in 2:31:45, much faster than the half I ran in Chicago in 2005.
So yeah, I can’t complain.
