Hits n' Misses

I never make resolutions. I like to break things, so it's never worth trying. However, after contemplating 2007, I've learned some things.

HITS:

* Adopting Snap and Sage in August. They light up my life.
* Meeting John. He made my October. He lights up the rest of my life.
* Obtaining a job- and a pay check.
* Spending incredibly cherished time with friends and family.
* My 26th birthday. They used to make me sad, but this year was quite the celebration.
* Enjoying the holiday season for exactly what they are, rather than thinking about what is missing.
* Discovering and participating in the time honored tradition that is happy hour.
* Trips to New York City, the Poconos, and Las Vegas among others.


MISSES:

* My previous romantic relationship. gross.
* The stress and anxiety around obtaining said job.
* School loan pay-back went into effect in September.
* Working out lasted about 6 months. Progress, but not enough.


GOALS FOR 2008:

* Cook and stay healthy. I love cooking, I just never made the time to do it.
* Pay off debt. Apartment, car, student loans.. whatever.
* Save for a down payment on a house.
* Stay in touch with friends and family that live far away.
* Laugh often, and love much.
* Continue to enjoy happy hours.
* Stop sweating the small stuff.
