Goals for next semester

I have to be honest. This summer, I really did absolutely nothing in regards to working on my dissertation. I blame the fact that it was summer and the summer rays distracted me from my goal of working on my proposal. LOL. Okay okay, I know you are shaking your heads at me. The real reason for not working on my dissertation was in essence "life." My work this summer took a little bit more effort than I expected, yet it is going well. Plus, I had two personal events this month that have distracted me somewhat. In essence "life happened," which is expected. So, for the fall I have decided to set two goals for myself, to get myself back on track.

1. Starting fall semester, dedicate one hour each day (except Sundays) and work on my proposal.
2. Attend at least one virtual world event regarding "education" each week and blog about it.

I think this will help me get back on track and start providing a routine I can follow. At first, I felt like I was grabbing at things in the dark, but now if I settle on such a routine, I believe I can look forward to getting my work done. Plus, I am really excited about it, which I think is the most important part of all :)
