My personal goals are the same as millions of other peoples'. Don't we all want to be healthier? My problem is that I have a sweet tooth the size of Texas (and no willpower). I'm not following any new diet, just trying to eat more fruits and veggies and cut out some of the junk. I usually try to change it all at once (and always fail), so this year, I thought I would just start by eating more healthy lunches and branch out from there. Baby steps...
My professional goal sort of ties in with my last personal goal. I'm hoping this year to keep work at work. This includes lesson plans and grading. I really don't want to bring this home with me anymore. I'm at school every day from 7:30 to 5:00 because my daughter's junior high (which is right across the street from the elementary school) starts at 7:20 and she babysits another teacher's son until 4:30 every day to earn some extra money. This should give me enough time to get things done (as long as I can quit going next door and across the hall to chit chat, lol)!
I really want to keep my classroom neat and organized. The problem is, I am a setter-downer. I'll be carrying something to put it away, get distracted by something else and just set that thing down without realizing it. Before you know it, things have piled up! I'm going to try to be more focused and carry through with putting things away.
I was really bad about blogging last year. My goal is to blog at least once a week (even if it's only a Five for Friday post)! I also want to be sure to leave a comment on each blog post that I read from other blogs. I know how good it feels to get comments on mine, but I'm often very bad about leaving comments for others.
Finally, my just for fun goal - I LOVE reading, but I never have the time. I really want to try to read at least one chapter each night from a non-work related book. Right now, I'm reading this one:
Head on over and link up. I'd love to see your resolutions!
