Heather just gave me this quote. We have part of it on a magnet on our frige, but the whole quote is incredible, and, I hope, applies to my situation:

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself the Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occured. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man would have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Countdown to September 2010: 49 weeks

From now, September 29th, 2009, there are forty-nine weeks until the 1st of September, 2010. Since I don't know which date in September I am going to Glasgow for school, I am just going by the first of the month. Less than a year in which to prepare for school in Scotland, where I will be studying:
  • Archaeology
  • Scottish Gaelic

I have some goals for the coming year. Some of these are:

  • Read up on current archaeology - specific to Scotland and environs
  • Study Gaelic more diligently
  • Get in touch with friends (and friends of friends) who live in Glasgow and environs
  • Read up on the city where I'll be living for four years.

I'll post more information soon!!!
