One of the things that always interests me is how often the new year is used as a point of introspection both in terms of what happened last year and things that are goals for next year. I think it has to do with how the changing of the year makes us think about our morality. I guess I’m going to be no different…
Looking back I’m happy about the things that happened to me:
Got out of Credit Card dept!
Moved in with Stephanie!
Got engaged to Stephanie!
Ran Several 5k and 10k races including the warrior dash (I wish I had a complete count :-()
Overall it was a great year and (as I normally do) I want to document my goals for the following year:
Get married to Stephanie without having a nervous breakdown from all the stress
Lose 30 lbs before my wedding (2012-10-20)
Run a half marathon
Have at least $1500 saved for retirement
Finally come up with a single topic blog and post to it regularly
Develop my own WordPress theme for my blogs
Get a side business website up and running by my birthday
10 more 5k/10k/half-marathons
This year I’ll do my best to keep track of my progress here:
I’ve finally determined what I’m doing with this blog.
After thinking about it for a while I realized that blogs are really helpful when they pick a single item of interest and STICK to it. So from now on I’m only going to post information about what I’m doing and things I’ve done. I’m working on breaking the more technical pieces off onto it’s own site (which will eat away at all of random Google visitors but oh well).
