A Name By Any Other Would Just Be Uncivilized.
I know I owe you a part 2 to Homecoming 2007. I know I owe you stories promised to you in December. BUT, life as a tendency to keep you busy. Indeed, my life as picked up speed the last few months. MK and I are getting ready to get married, so that keeps us (well, more her) busy. I'm starting my thesis research, hoping to have it done in time for May graduation. Work is going really well. I'm producing some pretty decent video content. I need more technical training on the software side, some sound and lighting training as well.
For 2007, it was a great year for me. Despite all the drama going on (I should write a post about it next, it'll take a few to do it justice) and the overcast that caused, there was a lot of great things that happened. I got engaged. I got a decent internship. I kicked ass in grad school. And I got reconnected with some good friends. Always a plus. Oh! MK got a job doing her school counselor thing.
So 2008! What should I expect? What are my goals? Well, other than getting married, I really want to graduate in May. If I don't , it won't be a big deal, but still...I want to get out on time. I want to convert my internship into a full fledged job. That plus I want/need to get some freelance assignments. I used to be pretty decent at writing. Features, film reviews, stuff like that. I need to convert that very dusty/rusty talent and my Master's degree and put it to use.
Two things happened today that has caused me to have baby fever, and enhance MK's already heated baby fever - Barbie's daughters birthday party (her first birthday!) and Juno. May, Barbie's baby, and her son Taiyo are two of the cutest kids ever. So seeing them and how much they've grown and the way she interacts with them just really make me want to have kids (or well, father kids. I can't "have" the kids.)
Juno is a great film. I won't get into the plot elements here, but the lead character's story arc in the film really, I guess, touched me. But yeah, it's a great movie.
2008 should be an interesting year. Crazy, and interesting.
So, I know I say this every time I post...look froward to more posting here! I can always use it as an excuse to procrastinate on my thesis, or take my attention away from political communication.
