So one of the things I've been doing lately is 8760 Hours. It's basically a REALLY INTENSIVE version of your New Year's resolutions, but taking like... a day or two (or several weeks, if you're me and don't always actually go work on it when you say you're going to) to sort out. In the end, you have about 14-20 things that you' like to accomplish during the year, of which you pick 3-5 to really focus on (with expansion potential if you achieve the first set).

So my goals for the year (which I'm really counting as the current half-year, so I'll re-do this in December) are as follows:
Under a cut for those who don't care )

So that's the five that I thought were most important to me. Other stuff on the list includes reducing meat consumption (those of you also on FB saw the results of that; I'm going to try but I'm not putting a concerted effort into it yet, the eating out thing is more important), improve earnings (I want to get to a regular $3600/mo pre-HST and income tax deductions, or about $2700 actual "my" money), write 500 words/day, see friends more frequently, have potlucks more frequently (see previous point), volunteer, get myself more organized/less prone to getting out of bed at the crack of noon, and meditate 20min/day.

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaack!

I slept from 11PM to 9AM - gasp, it's like I'm a real person! - but really that was like 5AM to 3PM, so really, who's to say what normal is, anyway?

Will post more about it once I (and Serena and Neil) have photos uploaded.

Crossed into Spain today. Completely uneventful. Barcelona driving has been hell.

Getting out of Paris was also hell. However, highways are MUCH easier, as are small towns. Saw the historical cities of Provins and Carcassonne, as well as Lyon and Paris.

Paris Metro is crazy weird. Everything that country does is in stars and circles, like spider webs. IT TRAPS YOU INSIDE.

Lots of very pretty countryside. Tomorrow, huge amounts of sunscreen and the beach (la playa).



Sadly for the World of Darkness, the US and Canada will never have anything as cool as the catacombs or huge subterranean networks where they kept sick people, carded wool, and had holy men go for religious contemplation.
