52 residents # 52 Resolution

Well all my 2020 resolutions went the way of the virus. Here's hoping 2021 is better.

1.Continue to organise and plan my study of Springhill. I have drawn up a plan to organise future research (in Scrivener, which so far has been the most useful of the organising tools I've tried even if it was originally designed to help writers). I have started to catalogue my paper and digital resources, this needs to be finished. Now there is a spare room I could do with organising the physical material better as well.

2. Give something back to the history community. I hope to continue on the committee of the Society of One Place Studies and hopefully contribute a bit more to webinars and the like. I would also like to be able to pick up my role volunteering at the local museum which was put on hold because of the you-know-what. It would be good to contribute to a transcribing project sometime, but Transcribe Tuesday is on my busiest work day.

3. Finally, this year, I'm going to complete my in-depth description of Springhill for the SOPS website.

I was already pretty good at taking life as it comes, rolling with punches and counting blessings. 2020 has taught me the value of these and reminded me of the importance of family and little things which bring joy.
