End of the Year Meme

I was tagged by Cae at VWXYNot? for this end of the year meme. It looks like I have my work cut out for me for 2008!

1. Will you be looking for a new job? Erm, yes. But hopefully not a new career.
2. Will you be looking for a new relationship? yes, not in a romantic one currently. And always on the outlook for new friendships as well as old.
3. New house? yes, it goes with moving...maybe this will be the year I get to build my own tiny house? Whether renting or owning I will be in a new place for sure.
4. What will you do differently in 08? Differently then what?
5. New Years resolution? Publish the damn thesis already and as always get out of doors whenever possible!
6. What will you not be doing in 08? Working at my former work place or living in Very Small Wet Alaskan Town (which incidentally is named one of the top 3 summer tourist destinations for 08!)
7. Any trips planned? not currently but there are sure to be some! Can't have a year without one.
8. Wedding plans? none of my own but a least one to attend
9. Major thing on your calendar? nothing big but lots of little job application closing deadlines
10. What can’t you wait for? well, I can always wait but I am excited to see where I will end up next!
11. What would you like to see happen differently? The US to sign the Kyoto agreement
12. What about yourself will you be changing?
13. What happened in 07 that you didn’t think would ever happen? The Disreputable Dog fell in love with a cat
14. Will you be nicer to the people you care about? This seems to imply I'm not at the moment and I think I am quite nice and will continue to be so.
15. Will you dress differently this year than you did in 07? not likely although if I move south I may require less layers.
16. Will you start or quit drinking? neither.
17. Will you better your relationship with your family? It's pretty good as it is although there are always little things that need working at.
18. Will you do charity work? of course!
19. Will you go to bars? Probably, especially if i live in more places where the entire social structure revolves around bars.
20. Will you be nice to people you don’t know? I am & will continue to be.
21. Do you expect 08 to be a good year for you? I hope so!
22. How much did you change from this time last year till now? I started a blog!
23. Do you plan on having a child? uh, not currently. See #2.
24. Will you still be friends with the same people you are friends with now? Certainly although depending where I end up the mode of communicating with those friends will change.
25. Major lifestyle changes? Perhaps. Although the base things that are important to me will remain that way.
26. Will you be moving? laugh, YES, see #1 & #3. Don't know where I'll be going to.
27. What will you make sure doesn’t happen in 08 that happened in 07? erm, all the things that I don't want to happen are not things I could ensure not happening in the future...
28. What are your New Years Eve plans? probably hanging out with friends in hot spring...maybe skiing to them?
29. Will you have someone to kiss at midnight? Not sure, but unlikely.
30. One wish for 08? ah, well, to get a satisfying new job, fall in love...oh, wait, you said only one :)

  1. you do have an exciting new year ahead!

  2. I want to fall in love with Florian, Arjun, Shanti and Fey (the last three are my pups) all over again.

    And I want to be light hearted. It was my new year resolution for this year but I only remembered it five weeks into the year. Next year I want to remember it longer. I want to have fun instead of wanting to be better.

  3. Doh! Tagged again! I might do this one: I'm not really one for New Year resolutions and all that but the questions are interesting and relevant all the same.

  4. Such an interesting list. I had to LOL about the dog falling in love with the cat.

    Using My Words

  5. maypole, sure looks like it!

    hel, I love your resolution. Usually I just want to be more open and impulsive.

    trousers, I'm not much of one for new year's resolutions either... I don't think there is any one specific question that is one. It's more a where-are-you-in-life questionaire. I hope you do it!

    julie, lots of wide open newness for the next year. You should see those two Disreputables, such sweet love.

  6. oh, and if you do need new clothes because you live in the south, be sure to visit me!!!

  7. Good luck with the wishes and resolutions - it sounds very much that you will be busy, and I look forward to reading about them coming true!

  8. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you at midnight....:)

  9. Thanks for playing, and more good luck wishes for you in the year ahead!

  10. liv, I will.

    but why, thanks! I need all the luck I can get :)

    qt, awww....thanks!

    cae, no problem & many thanks.
