A new year is dawning tomorrow, and with new years usualy come new wishes and expectations. What are your librivox wishes for 2012? Mine are:
1. To be able to bc 10 projects at the same time (and I mean bc properly, magic window and all, and not neglect anything).
2. To complete some of my older projects which got off the ground and get some devoted readers for those who didn't.
3. To pl as many books as I can and be realistic with my time tables as to how much I can take.
4. To make sure that my relationships with people here remain as calm and normal as they are now.
Now, what are your wishes?
Stav.

To BC the Weekly Poetry as often as possible.
To BC some longer group projects. (I have 2 planned, but I won't be able to start them for a while yet.)
To finally finish my solo.
To get up to 200 finished sections (I'm on 196).

And my general goals for next year:
To finish my professional certificate in accounting. I'm already on the course, I just need to pass.
To pass my driving test.
To travel around Europe, sightseeing, for a few months.
And then to get a good accounting job and start working on my career.
So little space, so much to say.

As for LV-related wishes, it's the most general stuff:
- to improve my Audacity skills
- to improve my reading
- to be able to read more slowly

I would like to get to 500 sections. That was my goal for last year but I didn't quite make it. :)

Well, my Librivox Resolutions for 2011 are here and I managed to really complete half of them, with another one not quite but almost. So, for this year I would like to:

1) Finish my two solos "Unbeaten Tracks in Japan" and "Noli Me Tangere" in the first half of the year, hopefully.

2) Try to finish two more solos. I have an eye on another travelogue set in Japan (a bit older though) and a certain science project...

3) Try again to get those 500 sections done, just as I did last year. Current count: 353.

4) Keep the Staff Picks going and find a way to get more people to suggest more books for them :wink:

5) Set up several science and Asian literature group projects.

That's it for this year, so far. I think it's doable as I have no plans of moving anywhere this year, but you never know. :lol:
Cheers,
Ava.

I broke all my 2011 resolutions - but here's a new set, anyway:

1. To finish my cherished solo (see signature line).
2. To do more extended poetry projects, especially in Middle English.
3. To be braver about recording multi-lingually.
4. To be much less upset by hostile reviews of my work.
5. To retire from my hated office job, in order to spend more time on LV'ing and looking after my neighbour's Norfolk terrier. (This won't happen.)

Best to all

Martin

No goals/resolutions/wishes for me. Does that make me weird? :shock:

No. It makes you busy and realistic.

Hurray for that!

Mine are:

1. to finish the solo I was supposed to finish in december (did not see that three-month cold coming).
2. to get back to converting to M4Bs. we actually convert faster than LV produces books, so we should be able to catch up at some point, but probably not in 2012.
3. to record that solo I promised my uncle...

Me too. (though I should finish that languishing solo) :roll:

I actually applied for a new job that will keep me busier but no commuting. It's a work at home position. So I guess I resolve to GET said job. ;)
