I Will Do This!

Two summers ago I started a Goals list.  I even made a page for it that your can see at the top of my page.  Unfortunately I have not been the best at keeping it update.  And of course everyone has been talking about goals since it is the new year and everything.  Well when I went to go update my page I saw how old it was!  I am not even working on like any of those goals at all!

So I am now going to start a new goals page.  These will be my 2014 Goals.  And hopefully I will update throughout the year.  And I will be changing out that page with my new goals and updates!

So here is what I hope to accomplish in 2014:

1. Put 10% of each paycheck into my Savings.
I am really bad about saving.  I always have been.  But knowing that life is going to only get busier and that I will not working as much makes me want to save.  I have done a really good job the last 6 months at saving and I want to keep it up!

2.  Go Back to Charleston
I left my heart in Charleston and want to go back now! Maybe a girls trip with all my Milli girls?!

3.  Focus on my Health
I was thinking about putting a number of pounds on this one, but I fear I won't be able to achieve it and then I will be disappointed.  So focus on health and see where that takes me!

4.  Really get involved in Church
My life is crazy busy and I have put this on the back burner.  This year I will make Church a priority!

5. Meet a blog friend in person
Rissa and I were talking about this the other night.  And we are totes going to make this happen!

6. Visit Tennessee and New Hampshire twice at least before the year is up
I need to see my girls.  I miss them like crazy and crave time with them! 
The first trip to Tennessee is planned for March 1!!

7.  Finish decorating my apartment
When I first moved in I decorated all the time.  And then life got busy and I stopped.  Currently I hate how my bathroom looks and want to update it.  My kitchen just needs a few things to make it less white and more homey.  And I never finished decorating my bedroom.

8. Find a Practicum and Internship site
This has got to be my biggest life stressor right now.  A month into the semester and I do not have a practicum.  And that practicum site could lead to an internship site.  Major prayers need for this one!

9. Go visit my sister at least one weekend before she comes home from Law School.
I have a very busy schedule and so does she, but this is something I want to make happen.  When I was at Milligan I visited her a couple times.  And now I want to go back up there!

10. Quit one of my jobs
By the end of this year I hope to not be working 3 jobs.  I need to be right now and that is ok, but I would love to not be worried all the time about where I need to be and what I need to be doing and how I am going to cram it all into one day!

11. Do 10 Random Acts of Kindness
Last year this was on Amy from Sweet Home Santa Barbara's list of goals and I loved it!  She has really inspired me to do this more!

12.  Spend more time in the Word
Last September or so I bought a devotional to do.  And I did for about 4 days.  And then I let life get in my way and stopped.  Devotionals are the best way to get me in the Word.  And I really want to be doing one everyday!

13.  Stop procrastinating work as much
I am really bad about putting off homework till Sundays.  And then Sundays and the beginning of every week are stressful.  I hope to get better about doing one assignment a night.

14.  Put my phone away more
I hate that I am always reaching for my phone when I am with my family and friends.  I hope to work on this and just leave it alone!

14 Goals for 2014! Here goes nothing!!
