-Find the perfect red lipstick, and wear it regularly.
-Keep runnin’. Sign up for at least two 5Ks.
-Read 50 books. Made it to 37 this year, and I imagine ’12 may hold a lot more time to crack open the nook.
-Pay my parents back the wedding $$ I owe (–> return to being debt-free).
-Travel. NYC in March (definitely), Europe over the summer (?)
-Volunteer at the local animal shelter…and maybe get a canine companion of my own.
-Eat less ice cream and make more home-cooked, veggie-centered meals.
-Learn way more about my savings/retirement plans (appt. already made at the bank!).
-Budget. Keep spending less on coffee/lunches out (…so I can spend more on travel, weekends with friends…and maybe clothes).
-Visit Milwaukee & Chicago regularly, to see friends and get myself out of my suburban apartment.
-Stress less. Be excited and spontaneous more.
-Clean at least a little bit everyday to avoid an overwhelming mess of an apartment. Value my little corner of the world.
-Ensure I’m happy with my job (and realize some things are beyond my control).
-Not let bitterness take over. Forgive. I’ve always prided myself in believing in the good in people, believing in love and complete trust. In partnership. & That, someday, it’ll find me again. And that I’m worthy of it.
Ready to ring in the new year.
