And, given the timing, New Year’s Resolution Time. What are yours? I’m going to try to give up sugar to the best of my ability.
Oh, boy. Resolutions. Well I can tell you one thing, I won’t be taking any advice on resolutions from those hacks over at Vanity Fair. I tend to think more in terms of goals than resolutions. I’d like to save more money, I’d like to do some fun trips. In 2015, I resolved to have at least one adventure every month and that forced me to figure out something interesting to do every few weeks, like take a flying lesson or try cryotherapy.
This year I think I want to set a goal of exploring my city more, making sure I get out and do fun stuff regularly. Also, I read a lot, like 1-2 books a week, but I’ve been reading all mysteries and thrillers, so I need to intersperse some capital-L Literature into my reading schedule.
In some positive news, I just paid off my car! There wasn’t too much left on it, but the loan was accruing interest and I hate paying more than things cost. So now I just have to finish paying off my tooth loans and I should be debt-free by the end of 2018.
Oh I guess I should also eat better and lose weight, etc. etc.
I definitely need to get out more. There’s actually lots of cool stuff to do in my city but man, am I lazy.
I think my resolution will be to save more money. I read something online that said by my age you should have the amount of your annual salary in savings and I… do not. Not even close. It was probably a bogus article but it made me mad, and anyway if I’m ever going to buy a house I will have to save.
That seems like a LOT of savings. Which would be good to have, obviously, but I imagine most people would do just fine with less.
Here are a few of my 2018 resolutions:
– Exercise at least 3 times per week
– Meditate at least 3 times per week
– Socialize more often
– Be more organized
– Apply for freelance positions
I also have a bunch of house projects that I’m hoping to finish over the next couple of days, so fingers crossed that I can check more stuff off my to do list before the end of 2017.
