Hey all, my name's Dressa and I have this horrible habit of making New Year's resolutions, and then forgetting about them or never living up to them. 2010 is promising to be a important year for me, though, and that little habit of mine needs to go away fast in order for things to go well for me.

So, what's so important about 2010 for me? Other than sitting in for my EMT-B certification in February and hopefully getting a job at an ambulance company, I'm also going to be moving out of my dad's house for the first (and last) only time. If that idea wasn't already stressful (and incredibly liberating) enough, I'm moving to MA, almost 1,500 miles away from where I currently live.

And that's where this place comes in. [: I have some goals I want to achieve by the end of the year, and I've broken up those goals by month, so they'll be more feasible/concrete.

2010 goals are (in no relative order):

  1. Move out of my father's house
  2. Write at least 100 words every day
  3. Save a certain amount of money
  4. Get in shape
  5. Stay in shape
  6. Pass certification & get a job at an ambulance company

I'll start with January, of course, and I'll make a progress post next Monday.

January goals:

  1. Look for an apartment and have Robby gather options
  2. Study at least 7 hours a week for certification
  3. Apply for jobs
  4. Write every day

Thanks for sharing. :)

I think the best part of making resolutions is breaking it down into a month-by-month set of specific goals. Most people stop at the "get in shape part" and then they aren't really able to realize that goal because it's not broken up into manageable steps. I JUST figured this out this year, so hopefully I can increase the percentage of goals I actually meet this year.

Where in Massachusetts are you moving to? My college is in Boston and my family is moving to the Cape, so I know the area.
