2012: Goals & Resolutions

As I wrote in the previous post, I managed to blog about my goals last year and then promptly forget about it. I have a big year ahead of me and it’s more important then ever that I get my priorities straight and my goals accomplished.

10 New Years Resolutions:

1. Save up 5,000-10,000. If I have any hope of going to Toronto then I need to save up at least this much. Right now I’m no where near that goal so I’m going to have to work my ass off.

2. Finish my 101 goals in 1001 days. Right now I’m about 55% done. I know I won’t be able to accomplish everything on that list but I’d like to get to at least 90-95 out of 101. I’m so close to finishing so many. After this list is done I’m planning on starting another one.

3. Finish reading 175 books in 1001 days. Right now I’m at 104 books. This one is the hardest of them all since I technically only have until October to accomplish it(according to my 101 goal list). If I complete it at the end of 2012 I’ll still be proud of myself. Nothing feels better than finishing a good book and almost reading 200 in 3 years is big for me.

4. Start exercising regularly & lose 5-10lbs. This one is more realistic for me this year. Jason and I have had plans to join the gym, I got a wii fit for Christmas and I know that exercise will be what helps me to beat my anxiety.

5. Beat my anxiety & Stop Worrying. This one is huge for me. I struggled with this since May 2011. It’s been one of the hardest things in my life. I don’t want it to keep winning. I need to find ways to make this the last year that anxiety will be a word in my vocabulary.

6. Complete 365 photo challenge. I really want to do this. Being someone who is obsessive about photography this should be easy. I’ll be posting it on Facebook every single day and I want every picture to be fairly different.

7. Keep the friends who care. Drop the ones who don’t. I’m tired of being the one who organizes everything. I had a breakdown to Jason last night about how many people I’ve lost touch with because they just didn’t bother to reach out. People who I thought were very close friends. He talked to me for an hour and told me that I should only concentrate on those who care enough to want to see me. If it means dwindling my friends down to two or three then so be it. I want to be with people who pick up the phone and make the effort.

8. Get my license. I mean it this year. If I want to move to Toronto then I need to be able to get around if Jason isn’t there.

9. Find a job/internship that makes me happy. I have nothing against the part time job I’m working now but let’s be honest…I’m tired of it. I want to be working in my field doing what I love. We all know that’s music. This year I’m going to push harder than ever to get an internship or even a job in the field that I want. I don’t care if it’s unpaid for a year, I just want to finally step away from what I’m doing and in to what I want to be doing.

10. Live Life. You only live once. I don’t want to race to grow up. I want this year to be full of laughter, concerts, road trips, vacations and good times. I want to remember 2012 for the rest of my life. That means no negativity. I want to be as positive as possible this year.
