Word of the Year 2015 Recap & 2016 Word of the Year

As I mentioned in my last post, I gave up resolutions for the "Word of the Year" that my sister-in-law, Sheri, turned me on to. Last year, I had the word BRAVE as my Word of the Year. To that end, I:
  • Beat cancer
  • Drove to Erie and back (2.5 hours each way) for my job
  • Made it through my first surgery without Dad
  • Walked my first 5K in honor of Brian "Boz"
  • Struggled through my first year without Dad being just a phone call/visit away
  • Began, in earnest, my full-time job search...and landed my first full-time, one-year teaching contract 
This year (2016) my word of the year is FAITH. I need to:
  • Renew my faith
  • Have faith I will find my tenure-track position
  • Have faith in the bond of family and friends
  • Have faith in myself, my decisions and my relationships
  • Have faith I can, and will, get back in shape/stay healthy
Let's see if I can do as good this year as I did last year

New Year's Housekeeping

Hi all (if anyone is still reading):

I am cleaning up around here. This means that I have whittled down those "Other Places to Visit" to active blogs. If I deleted you inadvertently, please either comment or send me a message and I will add you back on. 

Hope everyone's 2016 is off to a great start! 


PS: Will post my "Word of the Year" and wrap-up last year shortly...trying to get ready for the new semester.
