Your Patch Editor's Last Day is This Week

Also, support a local musician by attending his concert, tune up your energy and life and attend a Board of Education meeting.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
