As you can tell, I'm not quite sure myself. I did complete all the prerequisites required for a certification in my job. Woohoo! I wish I liked business as much as I enjoy writing. Might be much easier to wade through.
Amongst all the classes, I spent a month preparing for a big safety inspection in our office. Now that it's over (and we passed), I'm actually surprised at how much time it actually took. I'm crazy busy catching up on all the work that was temporarily set aside.
I'm half through three writing/networking classes I started in January. Unfortunately I wasn't able to keep up with a single one of them. Thankfully two are classes I can copy the lessons down and read through later. The third is a class with writing assignments I was supposed to keep up with. Failed it. I'm still able to copy the lessons, but the biggest benefit of the class was the feedback from the instructor on my short stories. Boo. I hated missing out on that. Maybe I can take the class again later in the year… If she lets me back in…
Life hasn't been all work and no play, though. Several of us from the Petit Fours and Hot Tamales blog got together this weekend at the Regal Hollywood Stadium in Atlanta to watch the movie, One for the Money. AWESOME!!! Not only is it a great movie with Katherine Heigl staring as a bounty hunting ex-lingerie saleswoman, but it is an awesome first book in a multi-book series (eighteen to be exact) by Janet Evanovich. I had only read two of these books before seeing the movie but you better believe I'll be plowing through the others. I LOVED this movie. Katherine Heigl made a great Stephanie Plumb.
Not only did we enjoy a great movie, but we all got together for lunch at The Rusty Nail Pub. Not bad. The food was great, but I'll be honest when I say it has been a very long time since I've been in a place that allowed smoking. I kind of like the non-smoking restaurants. But like both Lindy Chaffin Start and Pam Asberry said, the place has some great ambiance.
Now that I've given a rundown on my last month and the reasons why I've been MIA from the blog, I wanted to mention a couple of things I do have coming up. Tomorrow I'm blogging at the Petit Fours and Hot Tamales blog about improving my physical and spiritual well-being in 2012.
I'll also be posting the remaining posts from my 2011 Reevaluation journey over the next couple of months. My intent is to share with you the major changes I made last year and how I plan to expand those changes in my personal life. Hence the physical and spiritual growth.
I hope you continue to stop by and maybe you can share some things about your goals for this coming year. See ya tomorrow!
