New Years Goals

I'll admit. I'm not too good with goals so I tend to avoid writing them. Sure, I'm great at to-do lists and short-term goals, but long-term "for myself" types. Those often fall by the wayside. So this year I am really going to try!

1. Finish my novel by the time I graduate college. This gives me about a year! So far I've got about 25 pages done and an outline for the whole thing. I just have to actually sit down and write, write, write.

2. Start up yoga again. I've discovered no one will go with me, which sucks, but I have to just stop being lazy and nervous about going alone and just do it. Not only is it some much needed exercise (I look fit, but I never work out...another bad habit of mine!) but definitely a good way to relax and ease my anxiety.

3. Be a better saver. I need to stop buying things frivolously, especially when I am working less this semester due to school and an unpaid internship. This is so hard for me because I love shopping (hello retail therapy!) but I need to save and save is what I shall do!

4. Find a new place to live. Our lease is up at the end of April and my roommate and I want to find somewhere else to live. Our upstairs neighbors are constantly annoying and now people who just moved in who share our carport keep leaving us notes saying we are parking too close to them. Ugh, can't people just relax about minuscule things? But regardless, I definitely want to find somewhere else.

That is about all I have for now. I'd love any ideas you guys have to stick with my goals and I want to hear yours! Also, be sure to enter my first contest ever!


  1. I too need to sit down and write, write, write. Support me!

  2. I tried yoga a bit last summer, and it's definitely something I want to attempt again! I hope you guys can find a place with better neighbors, haha. And good luck with all of your goals! :)

  3. Wish we lived closer and we could try it again together! I just really need to go with a friend to get started haha, ugh!

    And thanks Natalie. :)
