Seeing as it's the 4th, I haven't made much progress, but I've put together some places to keep track of the progress I do make.
  • my monthly word goal progress meter is exactly what it sounds like; I've got a handy-dandy little graph of how many words I've written this month, out of 10,000 (my goal last year was 15,000, but I decided to lower it to accommodate for the fact that I'm very busy in Japan)
  • instead of posting reviews of every book I read this year (something I don't enjoy), I've simply set up a listography account with lists for things like books/manga I read or movies I watched in 2010, to be updated as necessary
  • so I did a little research into the JLPT, and it turns out there is not a test site in Boston, which means I'm going to have to probably get down to New York City, find a hotel and stay there to take the test… hopefully at least one of my friends will be taking the exam as well, so we can go down together, because I can't go to and stay in NYC on my own (on the upside, the girl who lives next door to me just had a convo with someone in Japanese and I understood about 85% of it!)
Would you mind making a tag for us to post our progress under? Thank you! eta: thanks!

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
