on the walls of the day.

I made my list, and hung it on the fridge. It’s a mixture of goals and reminders, things to work on this semester. (And yes, that does say “finish sweaters on the needles.”) A favorite song from a few years ago, when I was driving east to start grad school, came up on shuffle yesterday — “Challengers,” by The New Pornographers:

on the walls of the day

in the shade of the sun we wrote down

another vision of us

we were the challengers of the unknown

A good song for the start of a new year, no?

  1. Happy New Year! Looks like a great list! I’m still working on mine.

    BTW, I love that song! I’m really a Neko Case fan, not so much the New Pornographers when they play without her, though.

  2. That looks like a very good list! Maybe I should work on mine … in any case, I hope 2011 is starting off on the right foot.

  3. A nice list indeed. I’m still formulating my list of intentions, since a wicked cold cost me a day or two of coherence. Happy New Year!

  4. I enjoy reading your blog very much. Having been a grad student at the beginning of the 70’s, I’m extraordinarily sympathetic with the A exams on your list.

  5. Great list! I love that being good to yourself is first; that is a great place to start. Happy New Year!
