a new year

We went on a photo trip to Superior and Miami, AZ this passed weekend and I got this decent shot of my lovey. He is hard to get a good picture of because he always makes what I call "angry face." For the New Year, I spent the evening with Jennifer, Stephanie and Lindsay K at a **nice** house where Jennifer is housesitting. We watched movies, had a toast at midnight and screamed "Happy New Year." Pretty typical. I tried a Mimosa, which is a trendy champagne cocktail with orange juice and a slice of orange. Pretty yum. Mark had to work. Poor guy.

I always try to set goals at the beginning of the year and share them. Last year I wrote:

My New Years resolutions are the same every year. Go to the gym regularly,
eat raw foods more often, floss more often, pick up after myself everyday, go
somewhere exciting, and do my best in school. This year I get to add "graduate
with disctinction," "pass actuary exam 1," and "find a real job."

I didn't go anywhere interesting or eat more raw foods. I ate more fast foods. Fast is like raw, in that either way, I didn't have to cook, right?

Well, this year, for the sake of writing them down... I want to:
  • build ties with extended family by sending bday/anni cards, emailing and calling more often.
  • build my partnership with Mark by doing my jobs on time and picking up after myself and being more polite.
  • build my career by joining a social network such as toastmasters, passing exam 1, and getting my first job.
  • build my fitness level by cross training and working out for 2 hours three times a week instead of 1 hour four times a week, adding pilates, yoga and more weights. I also want to eat a home-prepared meal six days a week.
  • build my relaxing outlet to creativity by joining a scrapbooking club and scrapping twice a month.
  • Pay more careful attention to my appearance.
  • "Adventure" at least once a month and attend an "event" at least once a month.
  • Always be learning a new thing.
