January 1, 2012–
How many of you incorrectly wrote 2011 on something you dated today? I already have several times. I had just gotten used to writing 2011 on things, and here already it is 2012. Maybe this year I will just start writing 2013 so that for once, (when 2013 arrives) I can enjoy an entire year without having to cross out the incorrect year on just about everything I write.
Along with ninety percent of the world, I have made some New Year’s Resolutions. I have decided to share them, in no particular order.
1- Get a full time probationary (tenure track) job teaching Math. I currently am working as a TA, but really want to start teaching math.
2- Find a nice, affordable apartment on Long Island or in Westchester to move into with Amy.
3- Break the 200 pound mark and get into the 190’s … this is my final goal for weight loss. After this I just want to maintain.
4- Run 5k under 25 min
5- Run Half Marathon under 2 hrs. 15 min.
6- Run 1000 total miles in training and races. (1/100th of the way there already after today’s 10 miler)
7- Survive Marathon in March!
8- Earn the Grand Slam Heavy Medal from the Rock’n’Roll Marathon Series.
These are just a few of the things I would like to accomplish in 2012. I really tried to make these goals realistic and attainable.
I hope that everyone had an enjoyable New Year’s Eve and wish only the best for a happy and healthy 2012. May you reach your goals and see your dreams come true this year!
