Happy New Year

If you’re like me, you waited until the very last-minute to come up with your New Year’s resolution. (I thought about making mine to work on procrastination….but I’ll save that for next year). In fact, the last couple years, I haven’t made a resolution at all. After all, what is the point of resolving to do something if you have to schedule its start date in the first place. However, as I look back on the past two years I am realizing that I haven’t accomplished everything that I want to accomplish and I feel like it is time to change that. Sure, I have hit milestones that I am proud of, in 2011 I bought a house, and in 2012 I finished my Bachelor’s degree and paid off my first car 100% on my own; and yet, overall, I don’t really feel like I have moved forward with my long-term goals. I am hoping by setting my resolution this year, it will help me track, measure, and accomplish a goal that will help me gain skills and learn more about what I want out of my five and ten-year plans.I think learning something new and taking the time to actually process what it is that I am learning about will become an invaluable tool in deciding what will truly make me happy in the long-term. The internet is a wealth of information and I think it is time to harness that information and become a more well-rounded person. I hope you will follow this blog and help not only keep me accountable, but yourself as well for whatever your resolutions are, and that we can all share the knowledge that we gain over these next 365 days.

Once I get this blog up and going….and power past all the reasons for breaking resolutions; I plan to have a more structured system, one day a week devoted to crafts and DIY, perhaps a ‘Financial Friday’, something like that. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them! I have a huge-to-the-point-of-detrimental list of interests, hobbies and things I think are cool, so the sky is really the limit on what I can learn this year. The amount of information floating around out there is quite overwhelming, and I welcome ideas for how I should tackle this resolution. I hope every has a happy New Year, and be safe!
