In the last week or so, I've been think a lot about the new year, the things I'd like to focus on improving in my life. I try making resolutions every year, I don't stick with them for more than a month or 2. I admit to having lazy tendencies.
There have been so many changes in my life in the past year that I've already kind of reset many things in my life. We moved across the country, started in a new town, the kid is at a new school, and we are adjusting to life in an extended family. Already for the new year we will be buying a house, so that is my first goal and milestone to reach in 2012. Once that is taken care of, I can focus on other things.
My new job has actually helped me get more fit because of all the stairs in the building, though I can feel the effects lessening as my body acclimates. I would still like to get in better shape by either joining a belly-dancing or yoga class. The stumbling block is the cost. I'm hoping that we can rearrange things in the new house so that I can have access to the Wii Fit again.
My main goals involve work. I have a pretty good job, but it's not exactly what I want to be doing and there is also no guarantee it will be there next year due to the way they are restructuring the staff. So I will keep looking for my dream job, and not let frustration get the better of me.
My other work related goal is connected to my two blogs. This is not work I get paid for, but something that gives me satisfaction. I am going to try to write weekly blogs this year. This will mean that I do a blog for this site every other week. My professional site, Tech for Teachers, will be updated on the weeks that this site is not. If I blog more, then bonus.
