Everyone knows that if you post some promise on the internet then you have an unspoken obligation to actually follow through with it. So I will post my resolutions here. Then at the end of they year y'all can keep me accountable as the year goes on.
First: I am going to blog more. I think this year ahead is going to come with a lot of change. To be honest I haven't the slightest idea where I'll be or what my life will look like this time next year. So I will blog through my uncertainties and changes that will come this year.
Second: I have got to get into shape. I have spent this last year abusing my poor back injury and not nourishing my body and have come up with health issues that I probably wouldn't have or at least wouldn't struggle with so much if I took care of myself properly. So I'm going to start with yoga to strengthen my back. I've been in too much pain lately. But many friends have recommended Charleston Community Yoga. So I am going to start there next week. I'm also going to eat more often and healthier.
Third: Save more money. I saw someone say that saving every five dollar bill they receive was a great way for them to save money. I think that's how I'll start. As a waitress I come in contact with a lot of fives. I can do this. We'll see how much I can save in fives by next year.
Fourth: I want to move somewhere new. This is my last year at Charleston Southern. But my final semester will be online. This gives me freedom to up and move wherever I want once Cody starts college! J will be moving somewhere next summer but we've only talked about the possibility of me joining for that, nothing has been decided. So really I could go anywhere! I've always wanted to live in Austin, TX or Nashville, TN or maybe Nashville, NC! Who knows! I could go anywhere! But I want to move somewhere new before 2016 gets here!
Fifth: I want to do at least one thing to further my Student Ministry career. May that be an internship or new volunteer positions, I don't know. But I'm going to do something to actually help my work towards what I'm going to school for.
Sixth: I want to make deans list at least once before I graduate! I only have two more semesters before I graduate and it's been a while since I've had deans list. I really want one more before I graduate!
Seventh: I want to read more books and keep up with the news better. But to be completely honest that probably won't happen until the summertime. I still need to be realistic about these goals. So I'm not going to try to ad extracurricular reading to my list until I'm out of school for the summer. \
So that's it guys! This is what I want to accomplish this year! Feel free to email me or comment at any point and ask me about it. I'm gonna do this!
