Hello 2014

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday and that you're not too hungover today. Haha, right. Pop some Advil, eat an egg sandwich, and chug some Gatorade. I'll wait.  I've been spending the last few weeks resetting and relaxing and I've missed you all. Following the custom for the new year, I'm writing out my goals for 2014. Hopefully I can use this post to hold myself accountable and maybe inspire a few people to stick to their own goals. Hey we can all help each other out, right?

goals for 2014

SMILE
Apparently my bitchy resting face made too many appearances in 2013 because I constantly had people asking me if I was okay. No one ever believed me when I was I was fine. Time to smile more.
READ
Once upon a time, I read 104 books in a year. That year was most definitely NOT last year. This year I wanna get back to my first love: books.

STUDY
I have to retake the GRE before I apply to grad school in September I plan to do a few chapters a week until my scores improve.

EXERCISE
Even though I can eat whatever I want without gaining a pound, I can't walk up a big flight of stairs without getting winded (I'm actually an old man #geezer). This year, I wanna get back into some kind of shape.

SIMPLIFY
Yes, I stole Rachael's word of the year. Out with the old and in...nope. Let the old stay out. I don't need new stuff. Mostly because I have nowhere to put it. Also becauase I want to pay less attention to things  and more attention to everything else in life.

PRAY
I started to realize at the end of 2013 that I only find myself praying when I need something. My goal for 2014 is to pray in all situations because God is always around, not just when we need something.

BLOG
I also have a few goals for this little blog of mine for the coming year.

  • keep to the "blogging plan" I've created for myself so that I'm not scrambling to figure out what to write at the last minute
  • answer all emails in a timely manner
  • sponsor at least 3 blogs (dolla dolla billz y'all)
  • write a guest post
  • update my design
  • cohost a linkup...maybe?

What are your goals for 2014? Let me know in the comments!
