Thank you. I purged. I cleansed. I centered. 1/12th of an amazing year under my belt.
There is something great about going through one's belongings and donating the clothing, shoes, etc. that you don't wear. This year I supported Housing Works and Dress for Success. I also (finally) got rid of all my old electronics that needed to be trashed. I was able to participate in a local drop off sponsored by The Lower East Side Ecology Center, which besides E-cycling does amazing stuff generally!
In January I:
*Played my guitar some
The History of the Twentieth Century
Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same
How the World Began
Phantom of the Opera (wanted to do that since age 12)
The Pruitt-Igoe Myth
*Completed an amazing cleanse
*Completed a Cross Fit class and will register once I'm back from Kenya
*Had a series of amazing dinners (and lunches) with friends
*Continued progress on the job and consulting front, received an acceptance to sit for the Foreign Service Exam
*Kenya prep including some trips to REI and Paragon (niether of which I am allowed in for the next 6 months- I am a way too "geared out")and getting all of my vaccines
*Registered for the Brooklyn Bridge Swim
*Attended political fundraisers, was elected President of Lambda Independent Democrats (LID), and participated in an increased involvement with Trevor Project NextGen.
February, I am excited for an equally great 2nd month - I mean, I'm going to Kenya...I'm thrilled!
