It’s a good thing procrastination isn’t something I want to work on this year or I would have already shot myself in the foot with posting this entry the night of the 7th rather than on the first. Instead of having resolutions I have goals or improvements for the year. Towards the end of 2008 I started working on a few things that I hope to continue for 2009. I started being a little more serious about my running and plan to keep that up. I read 50 books and will be doing that again. I started eating a lot healthier and began to get interested in cooking/baking. If I had to pick a big surprise of the year, cooking might possibly be it. I never ever thought I would enjoy doing that. What’s next? Shopping? Ha, I won’t hold my breath on that one. But if any of you have any easy, yummy recipes you want to share please do because I’m on the look out for some more. And possibly my favorite thing I did this past year was to buy my awesome camera and get into photography. So this year, I think I would like to actually learn how to use this awesome camera.
We all know I lost my job a couple of weeks ago and am now a free agent for whatever may come my way. See how I’m trying to make unemployment sound cool and exciting? Well, I guess in some ways it’s nice to not have to get up and do anything but then again, before I started writing this post I was just sitting on my bed making faces at myself in the mirror because I’m bored. So another goal for the year is to get a job. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
I’ve been living here in Utah for a little over four years now which is the longest I’ve stayed put since I graduated from high school. But now I’m getting that itch to do something else, somewhere else. While I was in California I interviewed with a company and was offered a job but because of a couple of things it’s not going to work out. But I still think this is my perfect opportunity for something new so in a couple of weeks I’m planning on driving down to Mesa to check it out. I’ve never been to Mesa but I know it’s warm and somewhere different. Could it be a giant fiasco? Yep, it sure could be. Could I find myself staying in Utah? Possibly. Is it possible that I’ll run out of money before I get a job and have to move back home to Arkansas? Sure is. But it could turn out great and who knows, I may love it so much I stay there longer than four years. I’m excited for this year and excited to see where it’s going to take me.
