The new year is almost upon us, and I believe alot of people are in accordance that this will definitely be a year for change. I’m looking back over my life this past year and I realize that I’ve had many horrible want to crawl under a rock and hide moments, but I’ve also had moments I wouldn’t trade for the world.

Someone I cared very much for moved away, I moved to a new home in a new city, I left my job, and I had to start all over. Now, I do something I love, I have learned many many things, and I continue to grow. I also learned that I can work for myself, help other people, and make a pretty dern good living doing it too. I learned that I am stronger than I thought. I learned that sometimes things seem like it’s boding the end of the world – that is until we come through it relatively unscathed, then look back and say “oh gosh, I can’t believe I was afraid to deal with that before” (hindsight is 20/20).

Okay, enough of the reminiscing – with 2005 just around the corner, there are many things I want to get done. I want to share all that I have learned this year with others, so with that in mind I want to redesign my website as well as work on CSS Goddess (I can’t take full credit for the name – that was thanks to tantek). The site I wanted to put together to showcase women designers. I know there are plenty of CSS gallery sites on the web, however, I know plenty of women who love designing with CSS and who want to learn more, so I wanted to create an estrocentric community for it. That probably won’t evolve into anything meaningful until Mar 05, but it’s something that’s on my plate.

I am also planning another interesting project, but that one is pretty much a secret because it’s somewhat ground-breaking for the industry. And since I want to start the new year fresh, I plan to do a bit of spring cleaning – in Dec – and donate all the things I don’t use to Goodwill then organize, organize, organize (I want to see my desk again). I will also try harder to document stuff on my blog – a way to help me put my head on straight, so to speak.

I’ve said my goal, laid them out on paper, outlined my plan – now all that’s left is for me to get started!
