New Year, New Stuff

January 2, 2008 erinstine

Time for a list of things to do and be for the coming year:

HEALTHY:  This means going to the doctors I’ve been putting off like a) an optometrist, because I’m fairly certain I should be wearing glasses at least some of the time, b) a dentist, because I probably don’t need to be wearing these retainers that I’ve had in there since I got my braces off, and c) an orthopedic guy, because ever since the 1/2 marathon my knee has been jacked up whenever I run, which has resulted in me being lazy and my butt increasing in circumference.  I’ve been putting off these things because I don’t know how much they’re going to cost, but it’s time to suck it up and deal with them.

A BETTER FRIEND: To my family and friends, because I completely suck at phone calls.  I’m just bad.  And I want to be better, because there’s people out there that I love and miss, and they may have no idea because I don’t call and tell them that.

CRAZY ABOUT MY JOB: I put in for a different position at work, one in collection development that I think would be so rad.  I told my boss I was going to bid on the job, and she wished me well and said “well, you’ve lasted longer than most white folks here.”  Which kind of made me feel like crap, like I’ve gone and lived up to her low expectations.  But it’s not about leaving where I am, it’s about doing something I actually want to be doing, and I’m really very sure I don’t want to be a manager.  I can’t take the constant vigilance that it requires – you relax for one second and the punks start to think they can take over again.

So those are some pretty big goals.  Wish me luck.

    I’ve also got to get to a dentist soon. Mostly for a cleaning. I’m pretty sure, despite my efforts, I’ve got colonies of bad things taking hold. TMI???

    Good luck with your list!!!
