I didn't post these last year, but I wrote them down:

- pay student loans down to 40k
I did not do this, because I spent a good chunk of the year unemployed and job-searching. So my loans are at just under 48k. But it was worth it, because...

- get a job that is relevant in some way to my career goals
DONE. I started this research assistant gig in September and it is pretty much perfect. I love the work, I love the team, I love the location, I love basically everything about it.

- do the splits
Not all the way, but I got close.

- submit journal article for publication
:/

- score a goal
:D!

- finish novel
Barely worked on it at all, mainly because my wrists were so fucked for most of the year that job-searching was about the limit of my pain tolerance.

- rehab wrists
Done! A couple months ago Macey clued me into this thing called the Graston Technique that would have been crazy expensive to actually get done professionally, but I watched some YouTube videos and did it myself and lo and behold, I was cured. Thank fucking god. I was honestly starting to think I would be in pain for the rest of my life. I'm having some issues with palm pain right now, but it's not nearly as bad or as constant.


I'm not sure I want to do resolutions this year, because most of the things that come to mind are habits more than goals, and I don't do well with resolving to establish habits. It's better to set myself up to fall into them naturally. I dunno, maybe I'll write down some things in a text doc and keep them private until the end of the year like I did this year.

I'm pretty happy you got a job suited for you. Not that I wasn't happy for your decision to nanny for a while, but, this new position is right. And important, I think.

Glad your wrists are better.

You're so bendy with your spine, I thought you could already do splits!

I'm SO glad the job is working out for you!

Can't believe it's been a year since I've seen you. I'm hoping to get out to Davis this spring; maybe Linc and I could hit Seattle too. Miss you, Mishie! <3
