I really like to make resolutions because it helps me to reflect on things that could use some tweaking in my life. And I like to set goals. And I like to write lists. So there you go.
-Blah blah. This is on everyone's list every.single.year. But this year really might be different, and I have some basis for this belief. Back in my senior year of high school, I resolved to work out more frequently and eat healthier - and I actually kept up with it for almost two full months! Why? Because my friends and I were going on spring break. I had something to work for. Now that this impending wedding is actually coming (can you tell from my last posts that I can hardly believe we are REALLY getting married soon?) I think that I'll have the motivation to really do this. Not to mention that I've been eating so horribly as of late and haven't been feeling well as a result (I think).
-Now that we have this new house, we need to start taking care of it. I've done an okay job of doing a decent cleaning of the house about once a month. But it is NOT enough. This house is small and the clutter should probably be dealt with on a daily basis, not to mention that sweeping and washing floors should be a top priority with this messy cat living with us. I'd like to get more organized & get on a cleaning schedule so that we aren't living in clutter and filth.
3. Apply to Grad School
-Decision has been made. I've tossed it back and forth a lot, but I know that career-wise, I won't get anywhere without it. And why put off the inevitable? Getting in is another story...but I'm hoping I'll be good for that. Not much I can do anymore! I think I'm going to try and whip out my apps by the end of January or beginning of February, so the GPA I have now is the one that everyone will see.
4. Graduate and Get Married!
-Need I say more?
It's funny though. I am usually pretty anal about planning out my life. But the latter half of the year 2011, like after the wedding and after school, is a HUGE blank slate. I don't know where I'll be going to grad school (again assuming I get in). I don't know where I'll be working (I hope I won't still be waitressing). I don't know if we'll still be living in this rental house (could we possibly be looking to buy?) I just DON'T KNOW!! It kills me. I am so not good with unpredictability.
So I can at least resolve SOME things for 2011. But I think that most of it is going to be surprises after surprises. Bring it on.
And Happy New Year to all of you!
