Roundup January 2012

What special or unusual event occurred?

Big professional midyear conference that had several accomplishments done and several resulting big things to do.

What were my accomplishments this month?

I presented on some website options for my committee. They took the option that I wanted them to take, which was a wonderful surprise. Now comes the task of building the website, which will be a whole ‘nother level of work.
I also received news that the overseas teaching I will be doing will have the focus I am looking for, which is something I have been pushing very strongly. I am extremely pleased by this. Now to get it scheduled right and do all the necessary prep, which will be a long slog!

What were my disappointments this month?

I was sick a good bit.

What books/music/shows did I enjoy this month?

  • Kelley Armstrong continued
  • Discovered a few more paranormal romances: Gena Showalter and Lara Adrian; wasn’t overwhelmed by the quality
