Let the Countdown Begin

Four terms left, my friends! FOUR! And I will have obtained my Bachelor’s degree. After graduating with my Associates degree in 2010, I wasn’t sure I would ever go back to school, but my husband finally motivated me to go for it. Almost two years later, I can see the finish line with four more terms left!

I think I can. I think I can. I’m almost there!

I really believe that once I graduate, not only will doors within my career open, but so will the flood gates on my creative mind. I literally work at my classes at least two hours a day, five days a week, sometimes more. It has left me feeling dry and overworked, so once I finally graduate, I can imagine a ship sailing into harbor and unleashing my determination to finish my latest project.

I probably won’t attend graduation since it is held on campus in New Hampshire, but I promise you, it will be one the happiest days of my life to finally have that diploma in hand. That one piece of paper will welcome so many new opportunities and alleviate a world of stress off of my mind. Let the countdown begin!

2017 Goals

Last year, I had planned on setting goals each month with a long term goal as the grand prize. I think I made it through four months of the process, but like most “resolution-ists”, it kind of fell to the wayside. This year, I have some ideas of what I would like to accomplish in 2017, but some aren’t fully fleshed out just yet. I’m thinking I might create a few monthly goals, but I also have some that I would like to set for the overall year as well.happy-new-year-2017-images

This month:

-Figure out how to lose weight. I’ll expand on this in another post.
-Write 10K words on my new project.
-Continue to Tweet daily and blog at least weekly.
-Have a date night.

Overall year:

-Travel. I have a wedding to attend in Colorado, so this should be easy, but I also want to go to Florida. We’ll see what we can manage.
-Take a vacation. This kind of goes with the above, but I also want to make sure that I take the time to enjoy a break from the norm.
-Graduate. My bachelor’s degree is so close. I will finish it this year!

We’ll see how it all pans out, and I promise I’ll keep you’ll posted. After the excruciating year 2016 turned out to be, I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.
