Two Steps Forward, One Look Back

[ this question courtesy of Past, Present, Future Round 46 ]

PAST: Share with us one good and one bad thing about this past year.

PRESENT: Which direction are you headed as the new year begins?

FUTURE: What will you have accomplished by this time next year?

[You'll notice I didn't ask for a list of resolutions. That would be hypocritical... I haven't made resolutions in years.]


Works for me (the part about resolutions too. So, on to the questions. If you've been reading here recently, you're going to notice a trend...

PAST: Share with us one good and one bad thing about this past year.
Good: I got a job
Bad: It only lasted 5 weeks, and that was the only one.

PRESENT: Which direction are you headed as the new year begins?
Forward? Around the sun? Eastward? (Does the earth's rotation move us eastward? That seems correct.)
Still looking for work. I may have a small, temporary telecommute contract... when the person who needs to give me access gets back from vacation.

FUTURE: What will you have accomplished by this time next year?
Boring answer: paid employment? (That would be nice)
Other answers: a year of personal (offline) journalling; another year of weblogging. A large number of books read; several movies watched. A year of kitty snuggling and walks and naps and time with friends and time with Rich.
