- Goals for 2013
- December 31st, 23:55
I've never done this before, and I've never really been big on "new year's resolutions". However, I have been extremely unhappy for a long time and I believe the only thing that really keeps a person going is having something to look forward to. With that said, here are a few things I think I can manage to do this year. They are listed in no particular order.
Write everyday. Even if it's just one sentence. Add something to any story everyday.
Read more books. I managed to read 15 whole books and the introduction to The Complete Sherlock Holmes in 2012. Most of these were children's and young adult novels. I think that number is nothing to be proud of. I want to read more!
Go back to school. I don't care what program it is or where it is. I don't care if it's even one class. I must continue my education.
Finish my first novel. I just mean here that I write the whole story through to the end. This doesn't mean it's finished and ready for others to read. I will have to edit it. I already know that. I just want to get it done.
Find and settle into a good job. A job that I like enough. A job that doesn't make me want to call out and sleep all day. A job that keeps me happy, satisfied, and busy.
Get more active. I hate the gym. I won't buy another membership. If I just start walking everyday, everyday, then I'd be happy.
Stop eating so much junk food. I have cravings, but this doesn't excuse how much I just sit and eat. I do it mostly when I'm bored, or out of habit. I need to make myself more disciplined.
I'm going to make this a sticky post so I can see it often.
