The end of 2009: Thoughts & plans

Wow. I can't believe this is the last day of both this year and this decade.

I know, I'm sure that sentiment is just so terribly original around this time. I still couldn't avoid starting my post with it though.

I don't have any New Year's resolutions as of yet - do you? I go back and forth on whether or not to make them every year. I'm also tempted to make a new decade resolution - you know, set some really big life goals, like finding a way to either balance my creative pursuits with my career ones or make my creative pursuits into my career. I'll finish my PhD in the Spring, if all goes as planned, and I don't want to follow the traditional professor route, but I'm not sure exactly what I want to do instead.

Anyway, just in a reflective mood I guess. Now I feel like I should be stretched out on a couch and you should be sitting with a pen and pad of paper in your han saying things like "so how does that make you feel?"

My plans for tonight include hanging out with friends, playing board games, snacking, and drinking a bit of wine. How about you all?

To make this tie into one of my more traditional topics, I'll throw in another link to my 2010 calendar (the first PurrPrints calendar ever - don't you feel special now? ;)

4 bits of commenty goodness:

I don't have any resolutions but I do have goals that I hope to accomplish. I hope you and your family have a happy and healthy 2010!

I don't make resolutions either. Just started a new job so I did post a note up for myself in the bathroom that reads "Keep Your Mouth Shut" so maybe that's a resolution, but I made it a few weeks ago. Going to avoid the drama that usually exists in my kind of work place, and keep negative thoughts and complaints to myself (or better yet, just have none.)
Happy and prosperous 2010!

I don't have any New Year's resolutions/goals yet...working on it. But I know they'll include more time to keep my sewing room organized/cleaned!
