I started off like most others stating to T what my New Years Resolutions would be for the year but after thinking about it I realized I didn’t know what the hell resolution actually meant. So I looked it up.
A resolution is the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc. I don’t really feel that I have any lingering problems that need resolving (other than mental ones) so we decided to call them our New Year goals instead. I feel like it sounds slightly more ambitious and this is going to be my year of personal awakening so I felt it was more appropriate.
Isn’t every year that year though. Really though guys. I can’t believe I’m already 27 and don’t feel like I’ve marked much off my accomplishments or bucket list. This is going to be the year. I’ve already started it off strong! Which leads me to the goals.
hope to am going to accomplish this year
That’s right bitches, I’m back.
My main (task) here is to write more consistently and more like myself, more my personality. Kind of a reflection of all of the wild things I think and usually will say. Except more videos and photos because I like those better than words sometimes. And sometimes they’re necessary.
3x per week? We’ll get there but for now I’m not trying to be too ambitious because I have school starting soon.
Learn more about the blogging world, how to maneuver in it, make friends and be awesome. Like with widgets and stuff.
This may be a terrible mistake that I’m going to regret financially but I have decided I’d like to go back to school to get my degree in computer science. On the plus side I will be the only female in the program and there are a lot of scholarships available that no one else is applying for. I’m also taking some composition classes because I’m hoping they will improve my thought process so when I speak I make a little more sense to other people.
I have been trying for YEARS to learn piano but it just doesn’t ever seem to stick. I want to pay for private lessons but I can’t seem to find anyone reasonably priced. So I’m turning to you, YouTube. Please don’t fail me. I’d like to average at LEAST learning a song a month and by the end of the year I’d like to be able to read sheet music fairly well.
This is kind of a generic goal but I just want to be generally healthy so it’s fitting. The main (tasks) are to
- Eat dinner at home 5x a week. If you are curious what I’m eating these days because that’s a normal thing to want to know you can see my weekly updated meal plan here. (Note: It’s mostly Paleo. If you haven’t tried it you should give it a chance. It will make you feel awesome.)
- Bring lunch 4x a week (I’m rocking at these two so far, guys)
- Workout 3x a week (Not so much this one)
Make More Money
Really though, who isn’t trying to do this? My attack plan is to start up a little side gig which is TBD and make more money at my full time gig. Other opportunities I’d like to take on are selling all of my extra junk. I’m kind of a recovering hoarder, but not in the old food and cats in the closet kind of way. Also on the money front is better budgeting. It’s not making more money per-say but making better use of the money I already have.
