2. write more. maybe look into starting a book. finally. at the very least, maintain the gift, facilitate its growth, see where it goes.
3. listen more. while i have calmed down immensely since college, i still don't feel that i have become the epitome of a good listener. i don't want to leave people with the impression that i care only about myself, but that i truly and eager to learn more about everyone else. i've spent 24 years talking. i want to hear some great things. this year, i will ask more questions, and hear more stories.
4. spend less. enough said.
5. complain less. i'll be grateful for what i have, and focus more energy on being positive. this is going to be a hard year, because i plan to start back up in school, and i will do well to remember that positivity is crucial during hard times.
6. snark less. i will speak sweetly to those i love.
*miscellaneous things i also want to work on:
-keep the house clean(ish).
-get my dog more exercise.
-stay on top of homework in school.
-take better care of my body.
-learn some more recipes and cook more at home!
-take the time to look my best before going to work or school. this seems silly, but it makes such a difference in my attitude throughout the day.
