If you’re a parent like me, you may find yourself making resolutions based on the upcoming school year rather than the January 1st holiday. September through July is a pretty decent amount of time to set and meet goals over, after all.
This year my school year’s resolutions are:
To file for French citizenship. I thought getting my French driver’s license was hard. But that was nothing compared to the amount of money and paper work that goes into filing for citizenship. For instance, I just found out that starting January 2012, I need to take a (80 euro fee) test to prove I speak French well enough to be considered before I can file. Lovely. And all documents have to be translated (fees for that too) and issued less than three months ago. *sigh*
Find a job. My teaching contract was up in April and there’s no guarantee I’ll have a new one this October. Thankfully, I’m still covered financially by the Education Dept’s unemployment until I find something.
Finish writing and revising my current wip in time to start something new for Nanowrimo in November. That’s right. I’m going to attempt that beast again even though last year’s results were dismal.
Find an agent. Duh. :)
What are your school year’s resolutions?
