*Read 100 books. I read about this number last year and it was a good fit for my social number and work schedule.
*Catch up on reviews. My need-to-review shelf has been stuck in the twenty-ish range for quite a while. This is because I read faster than I write reviews. Perhaps if I participated in a Bloggiesta this year I'd finally catch up. Somewhere between five and 10 would be a more comfortable area to reside in.
*Write more discussion posts. I have some great ideas, but because I'm so behind on reviews, I tend to prioritize writing them, unless something is really inspiring/bothering me/time sensitive.
*Work on my fiction writing. On my computer, you'll find a word document with a story I sometimes work on. I'd like to continue making progress on that.
*Pursue happiness. I live in a rural area, so sometimes socializing is hard. Instead of shutting myself in, I need to remember to keep trying new things, and pursue what I’m passionate about, personally and professionally.
*Run a 10K. Maybe do another triathlon. Maybe an Olympic distance. I have no idea what kind of family commitments and road trips this summer hold, which might not happen. Working with pool hours and remembering all of the necessary stuff is honestly the hardest part of training. I can, however, definitely handle the 10K.
*Cook more. It’s really easy to go Trader Joe’s and buy a lot of frozen dinners. They’re delicious, and I tell myself that they are better for me because they’re from Trader Joe’s. Probably more organic, free range, etc. However, eating the same thing all the time can get tiring, and I eat everything. The more I know how to cook the more I’ll be able to enjoy
*Save more money. This is a tough one when you’re paying for a new car and student loans on a public librarian’s salary. I will continue to fight the good fight.
*Spend time with my grandparents. I already do this a lot, but they are 90. I want to get in as much time as I can.
Are you guys setting any goals for 2014? What are they?
