Just something quick

It's 2010. Woah.

This is quick, because I'm (still) in New Zealand, more in love with the country than ever, having a fabulous honeymoon which I think I might write about later when the internet isn't going out every few minutes.

I'll be here for another week and a half(ish). It seems long and yet, not long enough. I'm storing up things I want to do on my next visit. I know there will be one.

2009 was a blur. Dance competitions on the opposite coast, a mess of weddings (also on the opposite coast), conference presentation, thesis planning (figuring out a plan for researching and disstertating), finally making it to London -- probably good to visit after I'd planted myself quite firmly elsewhere; I might never have left if I'd made it there earlier, wedding planning, family illness, family death, getting married, more travel, more family drama, a lot of emotional and mental anguish and exhaustion the last couple of months.

Glad to be far from everything investing time and love in my partner and my relationship -- doing cool things, yes, but mostly just BEING WITH EACH OTHER. Reading bedtime stories. Drinking wine. Sharing meals at which we're really present.

I have a few goals for 2010, but only one resolution... something simple and hard all at once.

Two words: Cultivate Joy. (I think pretty much everything else falls out of that, one way or another).

That's lovely!

I have a few friends at the University of Waikato, doing various computer-sciency things. I don't know enough about what Sam's into to know whether he'd be interested in meeting them.
