We are a third of the way through this year. How are those New Years Resolutions coming along?
About 50-50. I kept up my goal of completing one Livemocha Spanish lesson per day and taking a hike twice a week (with a couple exceptions when I was sick or out of town, but I'm not considering that any kind of failure). However, did not keep up with writing an hour every day and I haven't found a job yet.

Have your goals for the year changed?
I'm not just looking for a job in education anymore; I will take pretty much any job that will hire me, provided I don't have to change locations. Of course, with my background, non-education jobs don't seem to especially want to hire me anyway, so I'm not sure if this really matters.

When working on personal achievements, do you do better when left alone, or do you need a support network of friends/family?
I'm much more self-motivated. In fact, I tend to prefer people don't keep up with my goals, because when people offer words of encouragement or motivation I sometimes interpret it as nagging or patronizing and it makes me angry at them or lowers my morale. I do like positive feedback, but I'd rather just announce my progress when I feel like it than have everyone know my daily/weekly goals and thus whether or not I'm actually keeping up with them as planned.

Who is your best personal airbag?
Probably my boyfriend (who I live with), since he's endlessly and unconditionally supportive and reminds me there's more to life and my identity than work, and he can provide this for me regularly since I see him every day. But I have a pretty good support system in general both off- and online.

What song or quote do you think best describes you right now?
Maybe "I Wish I Could Go Back to College" from Avenue Q.
