A wish for 2010 (aka New Year's Meme)

One thing I will learn:

I hope to learn time management. I have a huge goal of completing my undergraduate degree and this means managing every minute more wisely (which means probably spending less time on memes and facebook)

One place I will go:

I hope to go to Vegas. I have never been and I think it will be a fun time for my and my best friend.

One physical habit I will break:
Lounging on my couch all evening after sitting at my desk all day

One physical habit I will cultivate:

Exercising it dancing, walking, running, skipping. This will help me break my lounging habit.

One mental habit I will break:
Thinking that I am not enough.

One mental habit I will cultivate:
Thinking really positively about the outcome and the possibilities that can come with each outcome.

One relationship I’ll repair:
The one I have with Adam. There are a lot of issues we pile up in the corner until the mess takes over and we don't know how to deal with it. I would like to learn how I can change my reactions so that I am not left frustrated and he is not shutting right down.

One work habit I will change:
Showing up on time. I want to be at my desk everyday 15 minutes early. Also, I will stop eating in my cubicle. No more mindless noshing in front of my computer screen.

One thing I’ll throw out:
All of the makeup I carry around that i may one day use....many of these items are close to ten years old and I wouldn't be stupid enough to use it. Yet, I don't throw it away

A second thing I’ll throw out:
The mass amount of pens, pencils, markers, etc. that I have collected. There is no need for 300,000 pens especially if 60% of them do not work.

One thing I’ll eat more often:
Home cooked meals. I want to expand my culinary skills and the best way to do this is to just dive right in with a cook book.

One thing I’ll eat less:
The cafeteria food at work...I have spent way too much money there in the last few months.

One thing I’ll drink more:
Tea. I have opened up the tea gift set my brother bought me for Christmas and have tried three different loose leaf teas. Tea feels really special again.

One thing I’ll drink less: alcohol. I have spent the last ten years partying. I would like to spend the next ten years being more selective about who, when, and where I enjoy a spirited beverage

One overdue e-mail I’ll send, or overdue phone call I’ll make:
I can't really think of anyone that I should be reaching out to.....if I do, will update this.

One resentment I’ll get over:
I hope to get over my insecurity issues...and the resentment they cause within that I take out on the people closest to me.

One person I’ll treat more respectfully:
Me. The more I can respect myself, the better I will respect others.

One thing I’ll spend less money on:
Eating out. It's a waste. Especially fast food, junk food, food I don't really want.

One other change I’ll make in my finances:
Using my credit card way less.

One thing I’ll spend less time doing:
Facebooking. Its time to let it go I think.

And a thing I’ll spend more time doing: Homework. If I want to obtain my degree I need to make a schedule, stick to it and get 'er done.
