Happy 2012, Everyone!!

Instead of having one New Year's goal of "losing weight" like everyone else, I felt like I should have a million goals - not just for the New Year, but for a life time! And I am not going to be one of those people who makes a goal but can't pursue it.

Here's what I'm a do:

  1. Go to the gym (which you pay a $30 membership every single first of the damn month) more than twice weekly. Strive for five.

  2. Eat in more often, you have a ton of amazing cookbooks and you're the shit at baking bread from scratch, I'm sure you can think of something.

  3. Start saving money. Your savings account is not there solely to bail you out of overdraws, but to help you SAVE UP for the future. Imagine that.

  4. Become more patient with others. Just breathe and hold on.

  5. Move out of your mother's house. It's been fun having someone else pay the bills, but alas, it is time to move on, young one.

  6. Stop responding to my ex-boyfriend's nostalgic texts. Seconds after he says "I miss you," he literally says, "Eff you, I'm glad I dumped you" for you simply saying, "It's not mutual."

  7. Get a job. You're starting to search for jobs in the Erie area now. Although your dream was to move to Pittsburgh, but you want a career which forms you into a better professional - how odd is it that you're currently over $16,000 in debt upon graduation from paying for courses that have barely developed you? Gotta love college.

  8. Don't get pregnant. You don't have time.

  9. Get off "The Facebook." It shows you nothing but how well off your former classmates are, or it shows you that the weird girl from geometry is engaged and you're still single.

  10. Start to love others. I've discovered it's not that hard. However, if they are a sucky person to you, you don't have to love them. Which leads me to number 11.

  11. Let go of any friend who is only there to hurt you. We all know someone who is so miserable and pathetic they constantly have to try and bring you down. Not today, hombre.

  12. Reconnect with your family. You're stuck with them for life - get to know them better!

  13. Let boys take you out on dates. Hello, free meal, free movies, free.... whatever! Oh, and it's a great way to get to know someone.

  14. Quote "Bridesmaids" every day.

  15. Take time to hang out with your mother. Even if it means sitting through another Bruce Springsteen concert.

  16. Cry, laugh, smile, believe while watching Glee.

  17. Pay your credit card off immediately. Legit, immediately. Bad credit is so embarrassing and won't get you a new car (which you desperately need).
It should be hard to accomplish these things knowing that they will make me such a better person.

What are your plans for 2012?
