It's my first official post of the new year! Today I'll be throwing my new year goals out into the universe, hoping that this post will remind me to keep on track, and accomplish the things I set out to. Back in the late summer of 2014, I wrote an entry in my very appropriately titled "Dreams and Schemes" journal entitled "Things I Wish to Accomplish by Age 22". I only put down seven items, and two of them are pretty far-fetched. I'll check back on this post on December 6th, and see how many things I can get crossed off of the list. The exact list is as follows, in no particular order:

  1. Finish school
  2. Get a well paying career based job
  3. Get a car
  4. Get an apartment
  5. Blog consistently
  6. Have at least 500 YouTube subscribers
  7. Launch business again

One more thing I've decided to do this year is to not straighten my hair until June, and then not again until December. So it'll be my year of no heat. I personally think #2 and #3 are pretty far-fetched, but hey I will be very optimistic this year. I mean, I am talking about not straightening my hair for a whole year (ha!). I've decided that this year is the perfect time to take better care of myself, and get my future rolling. The past two years I have been slacking majorly in that department. Although I am attending college, I sometimes feel as though I have no idea what is going to come next, and what I will get out of my degree. I think this is my year to take the reins and break out of my shell and do things I never thought I could do. 

I have no idea what this year has in store for me, but I'm determined to make it a great one.  I'm feeling good about it.
