New Years tradition

It wouldn't be me if I didn't type out a few New Year's Resolutions... its very typical of me to make resolutions and even more typical of me not to keep them. I seem to fall into the same pattern each year... Enthusiastic, energetic and determined to accomplish everything that I didn't get to last year. By June, I've forgotten what I started the year off with. Resolutions are meant to be kept, a change we're supposed to make that will ultimately make us better then we were last year in all different areas. And isn't that the whole reason we're here... to become better people? So this new year, new decade, my resolutions are going to be kept. It may take me longer on some but I'm going to accomplish them. Think of this list as a short bucket list to what I eventually plan to do with my life.

I hope each of you have a very Happy New Year and that each of you are able to make that initial step to becoming a better person then you already are (which will be difficult for a lot of you since you're already pretty darn good people!)

Resolution List:

*Write in my journal at least once a month (end of the month to be exact so that someday I can look back and remember these days)
*Run at least a 5k each holiday that they offer one
*Run the Boulder Boulder (10k) in May
*Read the New Testament
*Learning something new... anything just something new
*Finish at least one of the books I started typing.
*Get at least a 3.7 GPA in my classes
*Volunteer at a retirement home
*Go Mountain Biking
*Pay off credit card
*Read more books- even ones that I may not find interesting
*Learn more about the world/government
*spend less money on necessities that I don't need
*get a place of my own
