Happy New Year Post Grads!! I hope all of you are over your hangovers by now and starting to feel like a real person again. Now that we have made it through the horrid 2011, it is time to make our goals for 2012.
Now, I hate “new year’s resolutions.” It has the implication that we can only try to improve ourselves once a year. I would like to think that we can improve on ourselves whenever we feel the need. At the same time, though, I can see how a new year can inspire people to want to change.
I prefer making goals for the new year. I can add to the list continuously and update my goals as things change. And besides, no one references a “new year’s resolution” between the months of March and October.
- Complete 1 short story or 3 chapters of my novel.
- Donate to charity once a month
- Read 30 books
- Take a writing class
- Give someone a chance who I normally wouldn’t
- Be happy
What kinds of things do you all want to accomplish this year?
