I cannot believe yesterday marked the first day of February! It seems like just yesterday I was at home, going to work everyday thinking about how soon I would have to go back to school. Well I am back at school and have been for about month now. So much has been going on and I have been a stressed out mess. This would be why my posts have been sporadic, if you could even say that. In lieu of the new month I am reviewing my 2012 resolutions.
My 2012 Resolutions:
ripped in better shape: Maybe some trips to the gym with my gym buddies Taylor, Jenn, and Kat as well as some outdoor runs and eating better (although who am I kidding the Towson Diner will still be a recurring thing)
* Run more races: I see some 5ks, maybe some 10ks, and a 20k (ahem Uncle Danny – Labor Day) in my future
* Start studying for the CPA exam: First step…buying the book.
* Get a 3.0 for the semester
* Keep the blog going: because even though I disappear sometimes, I really do love blogging as well as reading all the blogs I do
* Learn to be a good RA
Goal #1: Oh the gym, how I love to hate you. I wrote a post last week about how I have been dedicating three days a week to the gym. HA that didn’t last long after the post, I seemed to jinx myself. I was doing well with trips to the gym and then life just seemed to get in the way. I hate how people always say it is easy to fit in at least 30 minutes a day for the gym. It is not as a simple as that. My days are consumed with classes, homework, meetings, RA duties, trying to find an internship, making sure I eat three meals a day (although that rarely happens) and sometimes fitting the gym in comes last on my list. I am hoping to actually schedule it into my days for the next couple of weeks, but I am not promising anything. Oh and I have only visited the Towson Diner once, thats good for a month right? 😉
Goal #2: Even though the weather is nice, I haven’t had a chance to run a race yet. I am in the process of looking up races and so on, but yet again life is getting in the way. Once the spring time really hits I am hoping to find some more.
Goal #3: Well I asked for the books for my birthday, that is a start to studying. I haven’t actually started yet, but I will. Yet again, trying to get an internship so the prospect of sitting for the exam is even viable.
Goal #4: I just started the semester so I have no basis for judging the goal. Hopefully by the end of the semester it will be correct!
Goal #5: Well clearly I haven’t been very good at this one. I want to try to dedicate more time to the blog and hopefully it will continue to grow.
Goal #6: I believe in this aspect I am trying the hardest I can. I haven’t learned all my residents names, but I am getting there. When I see them around I say hi, I continually harass them with emails (all important though) and am available for a good chunk of time.
As I review my goals I realize that they are not short-term goals. These are goals that I will need to continually work on throughout the semester to help them come true. Some of them are things I will work on everyday and can easily see improvements, others not so much.
