This has got to be the first year ever that I have actual resolutions and am being strict to keeping to them. I have deemed 2010 the year of creation. I have resolved to create a piece of artwork at least once a week, to write at least once a day, even if it's just a little, and to read and finish a book once a month.
Other resolutions include:
-to grow out my hair, I kinda miss it, and have consistently had short hair since senior year of high school.
-to only buy size 9 shoes, I have a big foot that lingers between a size 8 1/2 and 9, yet I'm delusional to believe that size 8's are comfortable. Yeah they are fine for walking around the department store for five minutes when you first try them on, but completely sucks after a night on the cobble stone downtown.
-to not overdraft my bank account, this trend is what causes me to get into unnecessary debt and rely on Money Box to cash and keep 1% of my checks, it's time to financially grow up!
-to get involved in more organizations and volunteer. Before I entered the work force I volunteered alot and working with the Empty Bowl Project last year really reawakened that desire to help out in the community.
-to go to more concerts, the plus is that most of my favorite bands are from the 90's and their tours are cheaper now that they aren't mainstream. Seeing Third Eye Blind was such a surreal experience, I traveled back to my 14 year old semi-charmed life.
-to travel, even if it small trips like to the beach or to visit family, a change of scenery is good for the soul.
- and lastly to commit to creating a means for myself, promoting my art and crafts, along with my teaching abilities, I've been praised for my teaching skills, I was student teacher of the year for crying out loud, but I'm so scared and insecure with not meeting the hype and expectations that I've been hiding. No mas, time to get out there and see what I can do!
