Today marks the day of a new year, it also marks my one year anniversary for this blog!! 🙂
2013 was a very adventurous year for me, and it appears that 2014 is going to be as well!
I am currently typing from my new place in Suffolk, Virginia!
I don’t quite understand how the year can seem to go by so slow, but then out of nowhere its the new year, and I’m waiting for another park job to happen! A lot happened this last year; I bought my first vehicle, I completed my third season with the National Park Service, had my own campground evening program, was furloughed during the Government Shutdown, and did a road-trip to visit my sister …. twice. I moved from Michigan to Colorado, back to Michigan, and now I have moved to Virginia. For someone who doesn’t really like change, I certainly had a lot of it in one year!
Please feel free to go though some of my adventures and older posts!
At the beginning of last year I created a list of goals that I wanted to work on during the year, and I didn’t get them all completed, but a few I did! So, to add on to the ones to continue from last year, here are my 2014 goals.
To Learn Sign Language!
I did try to find classes that I could take many times to complete this goal, but it proved to be difficult. There are many sites online for free that I may begin to practice with!
To Become Fluent in a Second Language!I have been practicing Spanish key terms with a free website Duolingo.com
To Become a Better Birder!
I still have this secret wish to one day own a bird of prey, like a hawk or falcon!
Some short term goals:
I need to find a job! Just any job currently to help pay the bills, but I am also applying
and waiting patiently to hear back for a NPS Job for this upcoming summer season!
I am sure I will be adding more to this list soon, but for now, I am just ready for whatever is next. 🙂
