"Don't knock my self-improvement" -- Marti (Lisa Nicole Carson's character) in Jason's Lyric. (At least, that's the way I remember her saying it. Correct me if I'm wrong!)
Doing that list of Seven's helped me move some of my goals off the back-burner. So the two that I'm currently working on are
- Learning to play piano ... again. -- 1st step - Get a piano. I'm going through the Classifieds to find a small upright for a few hundred dollars. So far, I found three possibles. I'll try to check on them this weekend. Who knows, I may have a piano next week!!! Then, I'll sign up for lessons for the spring or summer semester!!
- Getting my Ph. D. -- 1st step - Apply for admission to the Graduate English department. For the spring semester, applications are due November 30th. Requested transcripts already. Gonna drop off the application Friday! Wish me luck!
