I don’t set resolutions. I don’t even set definite goals (at least not that I share here). So this isn’t going to be about resolutions.
This questions comes thanks to a friend from Austin. I felt like he was interviewing my over dim sum, which was kinda cool. When he asked me the question, it was easy to answer the first part of the question since I did a lot of new things in 2007. The experience that stuck out most was scuba diving Cozumel. It was more difficult than I expected. I freaked out at the weirdness of being able to breathe underwater, and I love being underwater. Luckily, I had a really great (and patient!) instructor who made the whole process smoother. Still, I regret being too nervous about breathing normally, checking my pressure gauge and making sure to periodically pop my ears and get water out of my mask to really enjoy the experience. I definitely want to go diving again, especially after checking out Jeff’s photos from diving in Jamaica.
When my friend asked the question, it was difficult to come up with something new other than saying I planned to visit Austin in 2008. I’ve got a better vision of 2008 now that the new year has started. I’ve been inspired by my friends (hi, Awkward Turtle) and I’m going to propose. Yup, I’m going to write my dissertation proposal and get one step closer to being Dr. Cindylu. I guess you can call that a goal.
La Pregunta: What’s something you did in 2007 that you had never done before? What’s something new you want to do in 2008?
