Brief update on some new achievements

I'll admit it - this is a little bit of a bragging post.

I've crossed a few more things off my Superhero To-Do List:

-I've lost 10lbs (10/28/11)
-I found a reason to dress up (attended Colorado Symphony Orchestra performance of Holst's The Planets, complete with imagery from NASA - it was music geek and astro geek rolled into one! 10/1/11)
-I've learned some new songs on the cello

And the big one:

-My paper on social media engagement has been accepted by the International Digital Media and Arts Journal and will be published in early 2012! My first publication, and my first experience with peer-reviewed journals.

I've got a few more in the works, including training for my first post-surgery-sickness-body-explosion 5K (December 11, the Jingle Bell Run to benefit the Arthritis Foundation), and I'm prepping my application to the Society of New Communications Research (SNCR) for their 2012 Fellowship program.

I haven't been able to visit the doctors at Craig Hospital yet, strictly due to lack of time, but I will be helping out with the new SuperBetter platform by supporting players and offering tips in their game experience. I am so incredibly excited to be doing this!

One new addition to my To-Do list is to make more regular posts about social media and health, and innovative methods for treatment and disease management. I'm challenging myself to start with bi-weekly posts in December (don't look at me like that! The project proposal for SNCR is going to suck up a lot of my time in November.)

Thank you for indulging me with this quick self-congratulatory posting. I hope to have something a little less navel-gazing for you next time. ;)
