Resolutions and Stuff

Happy New Year!

I am not usually one to make resolutions (just more for me to stress about not accomplishing) but this year I thought I would give it a go. I’m pretty sure I am insane for making this year THE year for resolutions since I will have SO much going on with NURSING SCHOOL and all, but I figured what the hell. Go big or go home right?

1) Lose the 20-30 lbs that I have been meaning to lose for the past oh, I don’t know, 7 years? I am going to try to start back on the C25K program I was doing so well with last year. Just need to stop making excuses for why I don’t have the time and just do it. I am also going to try to start eating better which will probably be the most difficult thing since I have a feeling I will only have the time for a quick run to the nearest Chick-fil-A for dinner.

2) Stop procrastinating!! (as I am writing this I am actually putting off reading the 40+ chapters that have been assigned to us to be finished before classes start on the 18th)

3) Get organized (and STAY that way). We are in the process of remodeling our dining room and turning it into an office. I am super excited (not about the dust that is everywhere, or the fact that my arms feel like they are going to fall off from all the sheetrock work I have been doing) I hope that I can keep it nice and organized so it will be easier for me to study and stay on top of all the assignments and projects we will have this first semester. I don’t usually have a problem getting organized, it is staying organized that is my issue. I let things slip and then don’t feel like fixing them.

4) Blog more. I have super sucked at blogging over the past 6 months. Not only blogging, but reading all my favorite blogs as well. I started this blog to journal my journey through nursing school and I really want to keep up with it so I have a record of this monumental time in my life. Good and bad.

I think that is a pretty good start.


  1. I don't usually make resolutions either but this year, I set a few broad goals for myself. Nothing major...but some things that might make my life a bit easier if I stick to them.

    And I wholeheartedly second the "blogging more" one. ;-)

  2. So how is your sememster going? I'm asking because I start my first nursing classes on the 24th of this month.
    Hang in there with keeping up with your resolutions and your 40+ chapters to read.

  3. Glad you posted. I missed you and was wondering how things were going. Good luck with school and keep us posted. I totally know how you are feeling with all that reading!
