|08:48 am - A set of goals and some organization|
Last night before I left work, I got some things thrown together in a list. Actually a couple of lists I've had on my plate for a while, but haven't really put them together.
The first is a set of goals and projects:
The second is a specific set of goals for my current project, temporarily titled "Dedicant Requirement Packets":
Only ADF members are going to be able to see those pages, but basically the first one includes a list of articles for OL that I'm writing, a list of things to fix in the DP Wheel of the Year document, and a couple of things I need to do for the Grove are listed.
The second page includes my basic idea for the packets I'm thinking about. I'm still working on this second one in particular, and will probably sub-divide it into 11 further pages (one for each requirement in the DP).
As things slowly taper off here at work (and believe me, the idea that it's "tapering off" at all is kinda funny, given the guy I just had to deal with), I'll have some more time to think about these things. More to the point, once I go off the clock, I'll want to think about things again when I'm off the clock.
It'd be nice to daydream about women again.
Speaking of women, the brightest spot of my day yesterday was at lunch, when I just happened to see perlgirlju wandering by. It made my day. Inexplicable, but then, my best moods usually are. So thanks to perlgirlju.

Alright. Sometime in December, I'm afraid, though, as today I need to go to the bank, tomorrow I'll be at the vet's office, and all next week (and part of the following) I'll be in Europe or in transit.
I'm glad you like it :) It's got some flaws (part of the reason I put up the page was to point them out), but it seems lots of people are finding it useful.
I'm just wondering if it really will get someone ready in a year. :)
That's been one of the biggest things I've heard. The program, while obviously good, was too un-structured. And so that's really what I wanted to fix.
The addition of the First Oath seems to have given people a really good starting point, even if it isn't required. I only wish it were a tad more clear that it is not a required step. . .
Study guides for each of the books on the recommended reading list is also something on the agenda. I'm just really not at all looking forward to re-reading Mallory's In Search of the Indo-Europeans in order to create those guides!
Those are probably going to be the last thing I finish up in terms of requirement packets.
On the bright side, I may be able to convince a preceptor or two to test me out of IE Studies 1 in the GSP if I were to write a study guide like that. . . Depending how in-depth I manage to get.

*chuckle* You should have Nora write that one. She LOVED that book!!! And she is a teacher, after all. :)
Maybe I will :) But then, the reason I love doing this is that I learn so much while working through the guides!
I laughed my arse off reading that book. Seriously.
In that case, I'm glad you saw me. :)
In other cases, you might not be? :)
It was good to see you.
Eh, depends. Sometimes I'm in not too social a mood... Yesterday was borderline, but knowing that seeing me had a good effect on your day swayed it to the 'good'.
And all else aside, it was good to see you too...
I imagine your reaction would be different if I had carried out my initial thought of tackling you at full speed. :)
Good gracious! Tackling me, from behind, at full tilt, yeah, I might have been less than completely pleased about that unless you managed to tackle me without us both landing in a heap on the rather cold concrete.
Well, the plan was for you to end up on top of me, actually.
Boy, that sounds a bit dirty.
But yeah. I think I was just. . . extremely happy to see you. Looking back on it, that's about all I can imagine.
I don't often tackle people.
