New Year for Dreams & Goals

22 Jan

Walking into a prosperous new year.

With the beginning of a new year most every one sets out to make changes, find new goals, and make their New Year’s resolutions; for me I always have this mind set. I’m constantly seeking new dreams, goals, adventures and challenges. I also dream big, which can lead to a lot of unfinished projects. With that in mind I have a few ideas of what I would like to accomplish this year, but I know more will come along the way.

  • Begin writing a blog post at least once a week. I have been slacking recently, it has been a month since I last wrote on my blog.
  • Plan for a summer of travel. Visit friends along America’s east coast from Jacksonville, Florida to Washington D.C., then fly out of the states for a summer of learning Spanish in either Oviedo, Spain or Rosario, Argentina. Very tough decision on which country to study in, if you have any input or tips about either place let me know. Thanks!
  • Take a photography or art class. I recently purchased a new camera the Diana and have been looking seriously for a awesome digital photography camera as well (any recommendations would be appreciated!). I love taking photographs and the arts, but I wish I made more time for it like I used to. Getting into these classes prove difficult but I am going to make it happen this year.  An artistic inspiration to me is my brother who will soon be a photo journalism major at the University of Oregon. He has never taken a single photography class and has self taught himself everything, which impresses me. You can take a look at some of his older work on his Flickr photostream: AAtronM.
  • Get my finances in order! This is a big one for me because who the heck wants debt, not I. For great tips on the financial world check out brass|MAGAZINE.
  • Learn to make time for myself.  Then I hope to use that time to get outside to go camping, hiking, surfing, kayaking, and snowboarding more. I need to take advantage of living in the awesome Pacific Northwest. I love all of these activities but I need to make the time to do them more frequently!
  • Write more. I don’t feel like I have taken enough writing courses in my college career but 2010 seems like a great year to learn how to become a better writer. It’s time to improve on my writing skills.
  • Graduate from Oregon State University : )

Of course I have other goals swaying around in my head but that is just the short order of things I hope to accomplish. I do believe that some of these are just small steps to accomplishing some of my bigger aspirations and goals. Looking to 2010 with determination and the confidence that good things are bound to come. I would love to hear what other people are hoping to accomplish in the new year! Leave a comment and share.
