i believe in lists

Shannon Fisher after a New Year run

There’s stuff going on over here:

  • I moved out of my office at school yesterday. I am officially no longer employed as a teacher. An hour and a couple of tears and 9 years of my life is packed away in our crawl space. Hold me?
  • You guys—I actual factual did something that terrified me and I’ve landed on this page in my Create Your Own Adventure book. I like this page.
  • I started a Life List here. I added and checked off goals I completed that I’m especially proud of. It’s how I write lists. No judging, judger.
  • I would like to point out on January 18th I added “Attend Blogher” and “Speak at a conference.”
  • Today is the first time I’ve told anyone about this list. Including Steve.
  • I’ve wanted to attend Blogher since it started in 2005. My plan was to make it happen within the next 3 years.
  • I’ve been watching Steve speak at conferences for years. I tell myself I couldn’t do it. It scares me. I’ve become the person who does the things that scare her.
  • Three days ago on January 28th (ten days after putting those things out into the universe), I found out I’ll be speaking at Blogher ’13. I KNOW.
  • Steve is leading a session called “Hot Mobile Sites: How to Get One via Responsive Content and Design.” Blogher wanted two people leading the session to create an interactive feel. A little of  this and some of that swooshed about and lo!—I became person two.
  • I AM PERSON TWO.
  • My life is the funnest.

Like Truthfully on Facebook. I offer free nose-hair trimming tips there. (No I don’t.)

    I already said “YAY!” and excitedly jumped up and down on IM and stuff, but…

    YAY!!!! <>

    You’re going to be great. And also: Yay lists. I totally understand what you mean about crossing things off. Nothing feels better.

    WOW, my dear. Just WOW. Couldn’t have happened to a better person and I know you’ll rock it!!! I need to get on my research of Blogher to see if I can make it happen this year.

    I am so so so so so happy for you. :) xoxoxox
