2015 Goals.

Welcome, 2015!

My New Years Eve consisted of good friends, overpriced dinner, and popping champagne bottles in the comfort of my apartment with Ryan and Einstein. I love a night out, but for me, it wasn't worth manning the swarms of people. Having a night in with the person I care the most about was the perfect start to my year.

With a new year comes new resolutions. Maybe it's because I feel like resolutions are associated with eventual failure, but when it comes to a new year, I prefer to describe my intentions as goals. I just think goals feel more attainable. Is that just me? Anyway, here's what I've drafted up so far:
  1. Read one book per month. Okay, I'm really serious about this one this time around! I'm just about done with Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling, and then Ryan's mom gave me Wild for Christmas. Can't wait to start!
  2. Take the GRE. I'm not sure when I'll need it, or if I'll ever need it, but the scores are good for five years. I want to take it just to be prepared for the future.
  3. Give up shopping for clothes for one month. I'm an impulsive cardigan buyer, I just can't help it.
  4. Put away $200 per month. Ideally, I'd like to put away more, but I want to start small.
  5. Work out for one hour, four days per week, for one full month. Take progress pictures, and see what kind of difference one month of effort actually makes. 
  6. Travel to three places I've never been before. As of now, I'm thinking Key West, New Orleans, and Canada. Crossing my fingers!
I know it's only the second day in January, but I can already tell you that 2015 is jam packed with exciting things! I'm already scheduled to go to five weddings, one of which is tomorrow, and one of which I'm a bridesmaid...first timer over here! I have a lot planned for this year, some of which I don't want to discuss in the blogosphere just yet. Mostly because I don't have it all figured out yet. What a surprise!

I hope everyone had a safe, happy, and healthy beginning to 2015! Happy weekend. XO

  1. I really want to venture to New Orleans this year as well. The culture, the food, the history, the music.... did I mention the food. I could probably spend a week touring all the haunted locations, listening to zydeco music, and eating... always eating. Plus I think I'm the only person who gets excited about Spanish moss.
