We’re almost through the first 4 months of the year, and I thought now would be a good time to revisit my goals from New Year’s and check my progress on them. With my funk, I’ve kind of dropped back on a lot of my goals, but I’ve been working on getting myself back on my feet. So without further ado, my goals:
I want to stay with Ray.
Ha. Well, that one I have to cross out. I did want to stay with him, but it’s over and done with, and we’re moving on.
I want to get out of my current job, and into something a little more related to what I went to college for.
Still a work in progress, but I’m getting there, I hope. It may take me a tad longer to get back on track, but by the end of the summer I hope to be closer to this goal.
I need to get out of this town.
When Ray ended things, he took my monthly Pittsburgh trips away. So, I’ve been stuck in this town. However, I have my vacation coming up next month, and I’m working on getting down to Pittsburgh to job hunt. So this is also in the works.
I want to continue doing things that make me happy.
I’ve been taking more of a stand for myself lately, and through this, I’m working on doing things that make me happy. It’s a work in progress, like the others.
Take more photos with my Nikon.
We’re almost 5 months into the new year, and I still have yet to break out my Nikon. I’ve been so uninspired. But with the weather getting nicer it’s slowly bringing me back into focus. Hopefully, I find my motivation to get back into photography.
I want to go on vacation this year.
Tickets are booked, and plans are made. As long as everything goes well, this is happening next month. Woo!
I need to get my license. And a car.
Birth certificate is here, getting my permit is finally happening soon. Once that happens, getting my license shouldn’t be too difficult, and a car will hopefully follow soon after.
Go to an actual concert.
Still would love to do this, but nothing has been planned yet. I’ve talked about it, but haven’t gotten serious about it. Gotta work on this one.
I really want a tattoo.
Another one I want to focus on doing. My coworker TL bought a tattoo gun and has been tattooing his leg with “practice” tattoos (because having one tattoo mess of a leg is all cool if you’re working on your tattooing? I dunno ha). But I still would love to get something small, and may actually take him up on it, or at least let his girlfriend do something because she actually has more talent than he does. And if I do, it’s going to be something real basic and simple that you can’t fuck it up.
Pierce my ears again.
Same as above – I still want to do this but haven’t put forth the effort to go after it.
Majority on this list is either a work in progress, or hasn’t been tried yet. Which is kind of sad honestly, but things also take time. Part of my resolutions were to get more serious about being active, such as taking up yoga. I started to do this, then stopped, then started, and just stopped. I’m so tired all of the time, but I want to stop letting my lazy self win.
Same with bullet journaling – started off strong but I’ve been slacking on it so much. It’s hard to find time to keep up with it, and it sucks. But I’m hoping to slowly work my way back into that as well.
I’m also trying to get my hair done and styled soon, too, and that has been something I’ve really wanted to do for awhile. I feel by slowly doing more of these things I really wanted to do, I may get myself back on track with getting goals accomplished.
Looking back on these goals, I know I have time left to get them done, but time is also flying by. Time to embrace the present and jump into getting myself moving forward and living life again.
How are you doing on your New Year’s Goals so far?
