Another Resolution Post

I know, I know, I know. You're all thinking, not another post about resolutions, but I feel that if I write them down somewhere where I can be reminded of them, then I'm more likely going to be able to achieve these goals.

I'm really bad when it comes to making resolutions... by the time I get to February I usually forget what I've promised to do and I'm too bogged down with life to be bothered to either think back to what I could have promised myself I would do or create some new ones.

But, this year I feel different, because by the end of the year everthing's going to change when I graduate with a bachelor of education and become registered to teach in High School (oh, now that's a scary thought).

So, here are some things I'm aiming for this year:
  1. Do not leave uni work till the last minute, I need to get good marks... and I definitely need to pass since I've been offered a schollarship which has the conditions that I graduate at the end of the year to be able to take up full time work in 2012.
  2. Read 50+ novels... just for fun, but I really need to read more (especially of Aussie YA stories)
  3. Start querying Haven (which will be getting a name change as well before then).
  4. Start a new project and have at least first draft done.
  5. Keep my commitments to my critique group.
  6. Try to fit in "have a life" among all of my other commitments.
I don't think that's a lot to aim for this year.

So, here's a question: do you make resolutions at the start of the year. If you do, do you usually keep them and what are some of yours this year.

I actually don't make resolutions at the start of the year.

At the beginning of the year I'm usually working through goals that have carried over from the year before.

And I generally make "resolutions" throughout the year, so my timeline for accomplishing goals is a sliding calendar. :)

Good luck with yours!

Good luck with all of your resolutions, Cheree! I have goals each year, but I don't usually make official resolutions. :-)

This is a great list! Good luck with everything. :)

Great resolutions. One of mine is to stop and appreciate the beauty around me more. It's simple, but something easily forgotten in the rush of things.
