Things that got did. Things that didn't get did.

I've known for a few months that I wasn't going to finish all my 2012 goals. I decided that some would have to be postponed, and some were acts of nature.  And you know what? That's fine. I've made my peace.

So, what didn't get done? 

3rd Ward Goals:
Intro to Upholstery
Mystery Class #4

Well, this I can explain. One, scheduling is difficult when you have a full-time 9 to 5 job. And also, I had another goal - to save lots of money. And taking classes at $200+ a pop is kind of antithetical to saving lots of money. And you know what else? I kind of figured out some basics by myself. 

Developing Online Promotions That Get Results

Well, this goal I purposely postponed. NYU's schedule for this class - my last for the certificate program in Digital Media Marketing - did not work with my schedule. So, I will take it sometime in the new year, before the baby arrives.

The GGs
Laura Salverson, The Dark Weaver
Winifred Bambrick, Continental Revue
David Walker, The Pillar
Hugh Garner, Hugh Garner's Best Stories
Douglas LePan, The Deserter
Dave Godfrey, The New Ancestors

Linda Spalding, The Purchase

Well, I already explained why that one isn't happening before the end of the year.  I'd still like to finish these before the baby comes, but in truth I am feeling slightly burnt out, especially as I'm not really enjoying the older ones, and I'm struggling to get through them.

What did get done? A fair bit, I think:

3rd Ward Goals:
Intro to HTML/CSS
Screen Printing

Digital Strategy: Creating Synergy in Your Marketing Program
Web Analytics: Integrating Website and E-mail Data for Effective Digital Marketing Programs
Strategic Search Engine Marketing Campaign Planning and Execution
E-mail marketing: Integrating Social Media and Mobile marketing for Optimal Campaign Results
Internet Copywriting

The GGs:
Bertram Brooker, Think of the Earth
Ringuet, Thirty Acres
Hugh MacLennan, The Precipice
Germaine Guèvremont, The Outlander
Morley Callaghan, The Loved and the Lost
Lionel Shapiro, The Sixth of June
Adele Wiseman, The Sacrifice
Colin McDougall, Execution
Malcolm Lowry, Hear Us O Lord from Heaven Thy Dwelling Place
Robert Kroetsch, The Studhorse Man
Brian Moore, The Great Victorian Collection
Jack Hodgins, The Resurrection of Joseph Bourne
Leon Rooke, Shakespeare's Dog

Guy Vanderhaeghe, The Englishman's Boy
Patrick DeWitt, The Sisters Brothers

Misc. Goals:
Get new glasses
Get a haircut
Save money. Lots.
Southwest road trip!
Go to the cottage this summer
Take more photos

I'll probably make some 2013 goals, with some of the fails from 2012 transferred into the new year. Maybe slightly less ambitious next year, seeing as I'll be somewhat busy growing a human, and then feeding it.

  1. The feeding a human part made me, a nervous laugh....because I'm nervous about that! We can feed our humans and talk on handed....or maybe Siri can help? Maybe. Best of luck to you in 2013! Gonna be a great year! Michelle
