Happy New Year — 2011

January 1, 2011Devon No Comments »

Wow. I can’t believe I was sitting in this very same spot, with the very same laptop, last year at this time. So much happened in 2010. According to my past blog entries, here are the highlights:

I was looking back at my New Year’s 2010 post and decided my 2011 New Year’s resolution is to finish my 2010 resolutions. So my past resolutions that I completed were:

  • Make friends in Dallas (I got a few good friends, but could always use more)
  • Learn to fold a fitted sheet
  • Keep a basil plant alive for a year
  • Do a simple good deed everyday (whether opening a door, giving directions, or throwing away trash on the sidewalk that was not mine)

So the resolutions I need to finish:

  • Lose 10 pounds (now it’s more like “lose 20 pounds”)
  • Try and reduce self-inflicted stress in my life (ugh)
  • Stop relying on spellcheck and Google (much harden than I thought it would be)
  • Pay off all credit cards (I only have 5 more payments and it’s complete!)
  • Establish an emergency fund of 3-6 months of living expenses (That would be $6,300 minimum; I have 14% of that — I guess that’s better then 0% — but a long ways to go)
