The Home Stretch

Apologies, my first post in a week and it focuses on my Walter Mitty lifestyle...so here is an unrelated picture of a Vespa as compensation.....


Vespa study is by Haku

Banality blogging is tastefully below the fold....

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's 2009!

While 2008 did indeed suck for many people in many ways, Tigerhawk has put it into some proper perspective.

For my part, since January 1 is my birthday, I went to my folks house and was presented with the best birthday cake evah!


A steak with a candle in it.

Traditionally this is the time to set goals, and I once again have a few.
Continue loosing the weight.
Get my TESOL certificate.
Graduate college (this is more dependent on the proper courses being offered in the summer or fall than anything).
Stay within budget.
Keep my hurricane kit stocked and...umm... a dust mask in the glove compartment at all times.


A pretty short list.
In addition, if, by the summer, I'm actually on track for a December graduation, I plan to return to Japan in August and hunt for a teaching job (to begin next April). In that event I resolve to not rent an apartment that combusts, not to break my heel, and, having not broken my heel, to climb Mt. Fuji.

I hope everyone has safe a wonderful year!

Here, for your amusement, is a gratuitous hyperactive chibit.
