End of 2010

December 30, 2010

I made it through Christmas. I am still working on getting those federal grants submitted, working on research, planning for the next semester and decluttering my house. I am overwhelmed sometimes.

The other day I was listening to a segment on the radio about a guy who wrote 365 thank you notes to people during one year. I have been working on expressing my gratitude and thankfulness more. I wonder if I can take on a project like that. 365 sounds way too ambitious. I wonder if I could write (and send) a thank you note for the weekdays of 2011, exluding the days that I am in the field for geology research. This would probably add up to 200 thank you notes. Do you think this is possible?

I would post a type written copy on this blog, names changed to preserve privacy, so that I could remind myself of all the wonderful people in my life. For an introvert, the thought of writing 200 notes seems overwhelming; I may not even know 200 people. I better decide soon, 2011 starts in 37 hours. Happy New Year. I hope that your year is peaceful, relaxing and full of hope.
