i had great expectations…

And now… It’s time for…

The Semi-Annual Review of My Annual Resolutions!!!

If you’ve been reading along, you’ll remember that I made a very public post of my goals for this year. (If you haven’t been reading along, or maybe just joined the fun, or you don’t care forgot, you can read my original post from December here.)

Now, I’m not one to beat myself up for not accomplishing things, but let’s be real: so far, I haven’t accomplished much on my list… I’m also a firm believer in making changes when necessary.

So, this year, I’ve decided to make plans. Because, let’s be serious, I’m a professional when it comes to planning things that will never get done/won’t happen/I’ll forget about/I’ll lose interest in/are completely irrational. It’s my second job; planning stupid stuff. Also, I love lists. I’m good at lists. I’m just not always so good at actually crossing things “off” said lists… So in the spirit of the “new year” and because practically everyone else is doing it, I’ve decided to make a very public posting of some goals.
