On January 1, I made a list of 10 resolutions for me to complete in the next twelve months. I’m not a hater of resolutions by any means and I actually quite like them. (Which, um, is why I made my own. Captain Obvious over here.) I’ve decided to make a “25 Before 25” list starting the day after my birthday, which means the goals I haven’t been able to complete (or are still in progress) will be added to that list.
Goals I’ve completed...
- Graduate from college. It still feels surreal that I’m a college graduate. But I am.
- Begin working a full-time job, utilizing my degree. Check! I remember saying in my last resolutions check-in post how disappointed I would be if I was still on the job hunt. I feel so blessed to have found a job and am still pretty happy with what I am doing. I’m not exactly sure marketing is IT for me, but it’s a good place to learn and grow.
- Travel. I didn’t do a whole lot of travel, but I went out of the country for the first time in my life so I’m counting this as a success!
Goals that will be added to my “25 Before 25” list...
- Get to my goal weight. My weight loss has been pitiful this year. Just like years prior. One day I’ll get it, right?
- Pay off all my credit cards. I have successfully paid off one, am very close to paying off the second, and will finish payments in February for the last one. Once that is done, I will be credit card debt-free! And then I get to work on my medical bills for the stitches I got last September. Yay.
- Complete Project 365.
- Join a book club. Just need to put my social anxiety aside and do this. I know I’ll be happier when I do.
- Begin therapy. I’m not sure what kind of therapy my insurance covers (if any), but it’s something I desperately need to start. My anxiety has been a little out-of-control lately.
Goals that will be completed before my birthday...
- Read 60 books. I’m currently sitting pretty at 54 books and I’m quite sure I’ll be able to mark this goal off by November 28th. Woo! Now I just need to come up with a different book goal.
Goals that won’t be completed, nor added to the new list...
- Run a half-marathon. No. Just... no.
I need a new book challenge for my 24th year (well, my 25th. But let’s say 24th because it makes more sense.) Anyone have any ideas for me?
