Turns out the list of goals was far more like a New Year's Resolution that never actually happens than I wanted it to be. As was my intention to return to actively posting, as is painfully obvious.
I'm in England. I learned how to cook a pot roast. I am travelling, and I have my driver's license. I read books. So, all in all, I'm not doing too badly.
I should be writing essays for classes, but I've just discovered awesome_women, and it currently has a themed post of "Woman I'd Take Into a Fight". I can think of about twelve, personally. But writing the post means fulfilling the other objective of writing things that are NOT essays, so I might just do that too.
