**Author's note: I wanted to get this post out for Rebecca to email, but don't miss the golden opportunity to welcome me back below**

So, I guess this means I am offish back. I'm going to try something new. I'm going to talk about professional things without bitching.

Inspired by the lovely Rebecca at Modite who was inspired by Jena at Modish, I'm going to join in on the September Monthly Goal Meetup

I am proud to present my September Career/Life Goals

1. Get my resume in real fightin shape. This search has been going on too long. It's time for me to buckle down, focus, and get this new job shiz done.

2. Cement my relationships. I've finally got myself a great crew of friends, and I'm determined to make these relationships the ones that finally work.

3. Learn the basics of HTML. I am hoping by doing this, I can help out the Pops and earn a little cash that I can promptly donate to J.Crew.

So, I know you all want to participate now, don't you? Well, I'm glad you asked.

To participate in the meet-up:
  • Post a list of your career/life related goals for Sept, along with your checked off August goals if you’d like, on your own blog
  • Come back here and leave a link to your post in the comments (*If you don’t have your own blog, feel free to share your list of goals right here in the comments to join in!)
  • Then, check out everyone else’s lists as they leave comments - click their links, visit their blogs, say hello, meet, greet and support each other because that’s what it’s all about!

Let's do the damn thing!

Haha, I think your goals include the most humor. Love it. I also LOVE reviewing resumes, so if you need any help there, feel free to shoot it on over. I also love your friendship goal. That's a biggie and so important. I included you in my email this morning, but didn't have yours so DM me or something. Thanks for participating!

wait.... goals..? these are, like, things i'm supposed to... like.. accomplish? gross.

alice's abbreviated half-assed goals for sept:

1. actually get the dang tattoo finally, or at least nail down an appointment to have it done.

2. make hotel reservations for eastern europe trip.

now, these are the kind of goals i can get behind. nothing involving work or responsibility. :-)

My goal for September is to make it out alive.

After all, October's only going to be better...

Alice: Since I love you so much, you get a pass. For reals reals though, let's plan a post-Europe visit and I'll come with you to get it done.

LiLu: That's kind of my goal too. My summer has been kind of...off. Do ya'll accept gifts that are not on the registry?

Interesting idea. I reserve the right to play along for the month of October. My goal for September is to stop eating ice cream, wait you said professional didn't you....hhmm, ok, start my SPHR certification prep classes already in the midst of studying.
