29 by 29 Update 11

I’m very late with this one! It slipped through my reminder net as I’ve been working on something for next year to replace this. I love planning so much that I forget about what I’m already doing. I really think Project Management is my career path!

  1. Move into my own place – Complete!
  2. Adopt a cat – I have been toing and froing about this all year. I would love to get a pet, but as I’ve never had anything more than a guinea pig and even then I didn’t take car of it, I feel a bit lost about everything that would be expected of me. I’m going to let myself settle in my new job and then next year decide.
