In January, I posted my resolutions. I would like to revisit those resolutions and see where I am with them now, in October.
Meeting new people and making friends in the town we are moving to
I’ve made some progress in this goal recently. I have met several people in my area via an app. I’ve also connected with old friends who live in a nearby city. I started a sewing meetup in my town and have met people through that channel as well. I hope to keep meeting new people!
Personal Improvement Goal
Improving my Spanish vocabulary and strengthening my knowledge and use of the complex verb tenses by taking advanced classes or going to language exchange meetups
I haven’t been able to take a Spanish class, since my work schedule involves unpredictable travel, but I have been using apps and going to language exchange meetups to practice having conversations. I would like to do more of this…I still feel very awkward when I speak, and I understand what people are saying to me much better than I can respond to what they’re saying.
Professional Development Goal
Learning how to use Adobe Technical Communication Suite programs, probably by taking classes (this can be on-going and go into 2019)
I have not made progress here, but I have learned more about Visio and about ERP systems, so I feel like I’m achieving the spirit of this goal.
I also want to make so many things, but I don’t seem to have enough time to take care of everything I need to do and have time for all the things I want to do. I want to do fun stuff outside of the apartment; I want to read; I want to watch my shows; I want to take walks in the park. We’ll see how I balance it all.
