Always in ProgressFriday, December 30, 2011
With the start of another year, so come an onslaught of resolutions. I have been thinking the past few days on what I would like to focus on in 2012 but thought I should first revisit last year's goals to see how I did.
Goal #1: Complete 15 hours of coursework towards my Master's Degree. Check! Completed in July 2011
Goal #2: Move more, eat less. Can't say I was really on track with this one as I sit here in my stretchy yoga pants (trust me, I did no yoga) after eating yet another Jack in the Box meal.
Goal #3: Save more money/ pay down my bills faster. The real goal here is to save enough to buy a house but I still don't feel confident in doing that myself yet. So the goal will remain to save 30% of my pay every month and limit the shopping, even when everything seems so cute at the store! Done and done! I bought a house in March of 2011 and continue to save.
Goal #4: Blog more. Indeed I did, in fact I doubled the amount of blog posts in 2011. 61 total!
2. Finish my Masters. After an unexpectedly grueling fall semester I am registered for 6 more hours in the spring semester, leaving just three hours to complete in the summer. Gotta keep on trucking!
3. Make some decorating decisions. We have lived in the new house for almost a year and most of the walls are still bare, no curtains, and we have an entire room with no furniture.
|This goal includes getting rid of those bloody vertical blinds, eck!|
4. Trust. This might seem like an odd goal but I have come to realize that I need to let my guard down and put my full trust in those who are closet to me and in myself. Only good things can come of this...I hope.
Are you making any resolutions this year? I find that writing my goals down helps keep me accountable. Here's hoping for a wonderful 2012!
