Weekly Plan - 19.1-25.1.2009

posted Jan 19, 2009, 2:41 AM by Clayton Mitchell
LAST WEEK
 
Goals.
Document
 - my visit to Scherer 8
 - my visit to Morus 14
   - Stummfilm details
Will do today
 - prepare a proper musical programme for upcoming musically minded. A couple of songs with all the info necessary to listen beforehand and then play : chords, lyrics, etc
Would prefer to have been more prepared, though I did get one song ready enough to show Trevor and will practice/memorise the lyrics.. more in the music post
Communicate
Observe
Guide
Direct
Not enough of the two above but still better - Must update more re: Meeting with Lucian re: communication and outreach.
Practice and remember standard lyrics for 'In the Pines'; obwohl, don't be afraid to improvise; it's in the very nature of the song.
Didn't play the song this week but would firm up those lyrics.
Practice playing guitar with Lucian.
Did this one day last week; forget when.   
Plans: 
Meet Monday evening to clear the skies and pray for rain. 
Much said, less resolved.
I'm going to try again this week at another Plenum for another project: Koepi. 
Lucian and I discovere/decided it was better to focus on more of our "in house cleanup" and meet about the communication and outreach theme of this month.  It's good. and I continue this week clarifying and achieving what we have set out.
Last week, I visited the Veranstaltungsplenum of Scherer 8 and I will soon make a post with my full "findings".  However, as with most, long-running, event sub-committees of a larger project, what I found was mostly self-evincing: i.e., They plan things and do them.
 
It would be helpful if a more advanced speaker of Deutsch would be around to visit with me.  We can arrange a time to meet beforehand, but I've invited most people I know and if any who read this site regularly haven't received an invitation via the calendar, please e-mail me: clayton - at - projectvolunteering - dot - net.
 
Will be planning more visits.
 
Properly introduce myself to the sustainable project.
Did check out the project and read some of the articles.  Realised that I have not much to contribute at this point and need to develop more understanding about sustainable practices; perhaps focusing on food, which I've been working on with Daan, would be a good start. 
 
versuch' mehr Deutsch zu sprechen/hoeren, ... wasever(Denglish doesn't count)
did make a decent effort
Further analyse Anick's data.
Not much to this end
 
Log update re: housing situation.
ongoing - status updates regular, not enough traction on the assurance for the flat, though.
 
 THIS WEEK:
 
See red above.
