A New Year

Recently I have been thinking about my life and some of the goals I have. We are starting a new year, I am now OFICIALLY graduated from college and Rod is almost done. Right now I am working full time at the hospital while Rod finishes school. For the last 4 years I have waited and waited to be dunzo with the University of Utah, but working full time has turned out to be a real punch in the face from reality. I have decided that if I am going to work the rest of my life it better be a job that makes me happy. I have always wanted to be a teacher, so that is what I am working for. The last month I have been filling out my graduate school applications, now I just have to wait . . . the suspense is killing me. With this new direction in my life I have decided to make some other short term life goals, which are:

Go to graduate school and become a teacher
Work at a job I love
Move somewhere with a beach
Become a yoga instructor
Blog more often
Run a half marathon (a full would probably kill me)
Learn to surf – not on a 12 foot foam board, but on a legit surfboard
Have enough money that we don’t have to shop at WalMart and eat only organic things from healthy stores (long shot?)
Learn how to take better pictures
Travel . . . everywhere
Adopt a silly puppy, I will name him pickles
Have some cute kids (this is more of a long term goal)
Buy a house, condo, or grass shack

I am such a lucky girl to be married to my best friend. I’m not just saying that, he REALLY is my best friend. There is no one I have more in common with in the world. There is no one that makes me happier in the world. We have been married for over a year, but we have so much in store for us, so much to see and do. This year is the beginning of our adventure and I can’t wait.
Happy New Year!
