It's a busy week in the Morristown area, friends. Need to tune up your life? Get a little (Board of) education? Support your local musicians? Wish certain Morristown and Morris Township/Morris Plains Patch editors well as they begin the next chapter in their lives? Then, this is your week.
- Tuning Up Your Energy and Life in 2013: If you've been running into walls, first, stop doing that. You're much more likely to injure yourself that way. Once that's over, head to the Morristown and Morris Township Library at 7 p.m. Monday, where Lisa Brick, a long-time natural medicine practicioner and founder of Unity Charter School, will hold a 90-minute information session for those wishing to get past hurdles.
- Board of Education: For anyone interested in their children's Morris School District, or is simply curious about the process, the next Board of Education meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Lafayette Learning Center.
- Go Local: When we hear about going local, often it refers to supporting local businesses and consuming products produced from 'round these parts. On Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., support a different kind of local--local talent. New Age pianist Quentin Fielding, of Madison, is performing in the Starlight Room at the Mayo Performing Arts Center.
- It Must Be an Honor to be 'Cherry Picked:' These dudes were, and now New Jersey Young Professionals has gathered them together in one place--Sona Thirteen at 7 p.m. Thursday--for a special "Single Mingle" event. Ladies encouraged.
- So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye: This one is a bit more personal, so it's time to revert back to first person. Friday, Feb. 1, is my final day with Patch. In just a couple weeks, I will board a plane bound for Busan, South Korea where I begin the next chapter, as an ESL teacher. All this week, I am going to repost some of my favorite posts accumulated over the past two-and-a-half years, since Morristown Patch launched in August 2010. Starting at 4 p.m. on Friday, I will be hanging out at George & Martha's American Grille. Anyone who wants to wish me luck (and buy me a farewell drink, nudge, nudge, wink, wink) is encouraged to stop by.
