In July I wrote down some goals for the 2010-2011 school year. Time to check in on how I'm doing:
Become a better guitar player
I'll give this one a thumbs up. I've been privileged to play at church a few times now, and because our worship leader picks a lot of more complex songs, I've been forced to learn a bunch of new fingerings. And I learned how to use a cut capo. Which is sweet. And feels like cheating.
Produce at least one short film project
Working on it. More to come in January.
Record at least one song
Currently working toward recording a 7 track CD, hoping to start recording in Q1 2011.
Spend more time listening and less time talking
*Most* of the time doing well. Still working on this, though. I guess I always will be.
Pay off my student loans and obliterate my debt
Student loans are gone. And my credit card debt will be gone by 11:59pm on December 31st, 2010. Debt to parents (will never be repaid, but speaking in strictly financial terms) I'm aiming to pay off by May, if not sooner.
Proactively listen for God’s Call in my life
Oh yeah. Rocked that one a few months ago. Backsliding a bit now, but working my way back up.
Read at least 1 book
Learn to relax
Hm. I don't know. I haven't really thought much about it. I'll say I've made progress, but have plenty left to overcome.
I'm going to add one additional goal to this list. Because I hate small talk:
Be courageous, don't fear diving straight into a deep question
