Resolutions 2016!!!!

Happy New Year!!!!! I spent mine on the couch binge watching scandal
So I went through my resolutions for last year and checked to see what I accomplished out of those:
 1) Get a JOB!!!! My stay at home time will be officially over in February and I will be getting a fun job to get me out of the house. My goal is to have it by Feb. 1 but we will see. If I am going to make that goal I might have to take something I am not super excited about till something great comes along, but that is okay -- I can live with that.
That did not happen this year due to several things like only half days a the kindergarden till October where I got a full spot and the fact that it's tough on the market but things are looking up now so I am hopeful.

2) Get a tattoo. My mother is going to kill me but I am going to get one to reward myself this year -- something small and easily hidden -- but I can still show it off I want. I am still on the fence about what the tattoo will be, but knowing me, I will decide right before I get it.
I didn't do this because I just now figured out what I want so that might happen this year.

3) Learn Yoga. I have been wanting to do this for so long but never got my ass in gear. I did try it at home and it was hard but I felt good. I feel so stiff lately and when I get up, I walk like Quasimoto, so I know I need to do something soonish.
Yoga didn't happen and I am still looking for a place that offers it when I can go.

4) Travel to 2 countries and I have those planned already: Italy (plane tickets bought) and New York and if all goes well Prag for a weekend. New York for my 40th Birthday is going to be the most epic and my siblings and I are already excited about it. We're planning all kinds of fun stuff.
Italy, New York happened

5) Do something fun at least once a month like Holifestival, Concerts, Fleamarkets, etc. I have several things already planned so I have a head start on that.
I did that

6) Take vitamins regularly, especially for my hair. Not only is it gray, but it is really thin so I need to do something about that. I usually start vitamins and stop because I forget.
Did this but not regularly

7) Do another whole 30 to reset my body and get rid of all the junk I put in it, at least for a little while so I can start eating nasty again.
I did this and now I start again tomorrow

8) Learn two new skills. I am not sure what yet, but it will come to me.
I did this and the biggest one was the play where I learned something new everyday

9) Be more aware of what is going on in the moment. That is a tough one for me because I am always so busy in my brain that I am happy when I don't forget who I am.
I 100% did this and even though I still drag my camera all over the place I definitely paid more attention

10) Go to every event my kids have, even if I don't want to since I know it will be really boring. I already started this year; that's why I am in the parent council in my son's class. He hates that. lol mission accomplished.
I did this all the way. 

I think I did pretty good at least I am satisfied with my progress
This year:

1) Learn sign language, I am starting that this month

2) Exercise almost everyday  I have my plan all worked out and my exercise partner ( Enya) ready. This is happening fo sure because I need it really bad.

3)  Learn how to pick a lock, don't ask me why I want to learn this I just think it could be helpful.

4) Ge the qualifications that I need for the Job that I want. I have come to the realization that you can't stop going to school if you want to be interesting to the job market so I will be adding to my skills this year.

5) Travel to 2 countries

6) Write more I really dropped the ball on the Blog this year. I started writing on August 18th 2010 and have been pretty consistent so far but I would like to do more.

7) Minimize my Belongings I started this already but I need to really crack down and go through everything and get rid if it. 

8) Continue to be aware and considerate 

That is about it I think they are doable so here goes nothing.

Talk to you later,
Julia
