current mood: optimistic
So I know it's still January but I think I'm doing pretty good with my resolutions so far. Here is an update:
the obvious - lose weight, go to the gym, diet etc. etc. I'm hoping to lose 5-7 pounds before my birthday party on the 27th. small goals.
I've been going to the gym with Jessie 2 or 3 times a week and I've lost 8 pounds and almost 3 inches from my waist! woohoo! The party is on Saturday so my first goal is met :) Let's try for another 10 by the end of February? That should be doable.
find another job or find a way to be happy at my current position. the company I had been interviewing with informed me today that they would be 'pursuing other candidates' after I was SURE that I had it. at least it motivated me to put together a resume and portfolio so I can look for other opportunities.
Haven't done much here yet... my job has kindof changed here for the time being so I'm riding it out, ready to see what happens. But I may start looking again soon.
learn spanish. I've always wanted to have a conversation with my grandparents in their native language and I think it would mean a lot to them that at least one of their grandchildren learned español. :) I've signed up for a class at the community college with my boyfriend, it started yesterday and I think it will be fun :)
The Spanish class is going really well. It's a lot tougher that I thought it would be though... I'm going to need to set aside a couple of days a week for study in order to keep up. We had our first test last night though and I think I aced it - woo!
visit someplace new. I'm 28 and I've never been outside the country. I've been to many places in our own beautiful country and I'd like to see more. for the last 5 years or so I've gone to the northwest coast, an absolutely beautiful place that I definitely want to visit again. but this year I'd like to see something new. I'd love to go outside the country, maybe practice some of my new language skills ;) or even just visit a place close by that I've never seen before.
So we're not sure yet but I think we may be visiting Puerto Vallarta in May. Yay! A new place, a new country, AND practicing spanish... perfect :)
