It’s always a good thing –
10 things I’m looking forward to
having something or some things on the horizon.
Ten things I’m looking forward to are:
Getting myself a new pair of jeans.
I have hand-me-downs and old pairs. Time for a nice, new one that fits me just right.
Presentation night at the end of the storytelling workshop I’ve been taking.
We are telling a story from our life, in front of people, and working out how to best present it to keep an audience’s attention. I thought I would take this workshop, to get more comfortable with going from writing to speaking, with amazing results from myself and the other members in the class. On the final night, we are inviting family or friends and speaking our stories to a wider group.
The new Fantastic Beasts movie.
Of course, staying at my local cinema to see this one, my older brother will have to describe what’s going on because there’s no audio description, but it’s Dumbledore as a young man. Exciting.
Starting to complete the final two credits toward my high school diploma.
This one causes me a bunch of anxiety to talk about and embarrassment when I do, but it’s been many years and I don’t want to let my chronic pain win. I will complete these last two credits and then I can get on with the rest of my life.
Some years were better than others, some years harder than others, but I know I’m not alone in becoming a happier version of myself around that time of year. It makes me happy. It just does.
For the second Harry Potter movie (Chamber of Secrets) to be shown nearby, along with an in-house full orchestra.
I saw the first HP film, after missing it the first time round in theatres, last January and loved hearing the live musical score, including the string section.
Women’s Travel Fest in New York City.
My secret mission while I am visiting New York City.
I know how much I dislike it when people announce they have something exciting to say/something going on and yet they can’t say what that is, for whatever reason. Unfortunately, this thing I am looking forward to is quickly becoming an important part of my trip to NYC and I am not sure how it will play out. I am doing something big, new for me, but it will make a statement. I’m just not sure if I should go on and on about what it is, as I’m not sure how well it will be received. I may need some help and will need to do some research into a particularly notorious landmark in the city.
And, to finish off on a travel theme, to hopefully make it to the
Canadian Federation of the Blind’s
yearly national convention in Vancouver, British Columbia.
National Federation of the Blind’s
convention being held in Vegas for the first time.
Really, my 2019 isn’t all that well-known at this time, as I am hoping 2018 will wind down as calmly as possible in the meantime.
Keep making plans and finding things to look forward to,
along with those from Finish the Sentence Friday,
as it does a world of good and helps to boost the mood.
Here we are in November already: 2018 on its way out and 2019 on its way in.
