Assessing where I’ve been and where I’m going

When People Want to Know “Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years?”

“Where do you see yourself in five years?” That’s what they always want to know. In job interviews, in scholarship applications, it’s the same question. Sometimes they also ask about ten years from now. I can’t answer either question with anything even remotely resembling certainty. When I moved to Florida, Read more →

99 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Part 1 (Questions 1-10)

Katrin from Land of Candy Canes posted questions from 99 Questions You Should Ask Yourself and asked others to answer as well. Like her, I think 99 questions would be a little ridiculous for one post, so I’m going to break it up into the same parts she did and, Read more →

Looking Ahead at 2013

Frohes neues Jahr! (Happy New Year!) Yesterday, I looked back at 2012 and how I fared on the goals I had made for the year (both those made toward the beginning of the year and those that came up as the year went on). Today I want to look ahead Read more →

Never Have I Ever Part 2

Here is the remainder of the Never Have I Ever list I started yesterday. 50. Been to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris – I haven’t been to Paris. Not sure if we’d go to the top of the Eiffel when we go, but it might be an Read more →

Never Have I Ever Part 1

I found this list on Katrin’s blog Land of Candy Canes. Like her, I couldn’t resist doing it, so I thought I’d post it. I’m calling it Never Have I Ever because it reminds me of the game of the same name where you say something you’ve never done and Read more →
