i didn't manage to meet too many of last year's goals, but i did get several of them done and some of the others i made a bit of progress towards - i borrowed a flute for a few months, even though i didn't get to buy one, and that was grand and made me realise how much i've missed having one. so most things on the list i did get at least partway towards even if i didn't get to a point where i could tick them off. i think the only one i totally failed on was the weight loss - i went backwards - but one out of a whole list isn't bad, i think. still, aiming to do better with this year's list. there've also been some surprise achievements in 2009 which i couldn't have foreseen - 2 performances of my music and a film score commission for a start, selling a score, and tons of random travel for a follow-up!
write a new piece for consideration for this year's london new wind festival (the mob who played my pieces of eight last year) working on the last tweaks to this now - it's going to be performed on 28 September!
eat less sugar. i want to cut out buying sweets pretty much altogether doing well with this one - i don't really think about sweets much any more. haven't bought chocolate in quite a while. generally only buying them when i really really specifically want something, which is sort of the point i wanted to get to. yay cull the damn time out magazines. fed up with the huge pile. done! before the move too! edinburgh . festival time! spent 4 days in edinburgh in august - awesome! i can't wait to go back! buy a new camera if i find one i like and can afford - this one's causing me too much stress, and then disappointment when the photos turn out rubbish (not to mention time trying to fix them in potatoshop) . done. invested in a canon g11, which i'm really loving - well worth it!
