My 2012 New Year's Resolutions

  1. Make a decision about furthering my education. This goal may or may not include signing up to take the appropriate exams for admission, getting reference letters together, and turning in an application.

  2. Drink less soda. In the past I've tried to make resolutions about cutting cokes out of my life completely but the truth is, I can't. I need to enjoy them in moderation. Less coke, more tea and water.

  3. Read 52 new to me books this year. I'd like to cut out re-reads. Luckily there are lots of older books I skipped as a kid.

  4. Organize paper clutter. I stole this one from my friend Karen but I love the idea. I'm notoriously bad at throwing out receipts I don't need. Or keeping a huge stack of disorganized mail just laying on my bookshelf or desk. All of that clutter is out of control.

  5. Grow pumpkins. I've grown pumpkins on accident in years past but this year I'd like to plant them on purpose.

  6. Be more diligent about giving away eggs.

  7. Cook more; eat out less. I hate eating out but that doesn't mean I don't fall into the pick up something on the way home from work because I'm too tired to wash dishes tonight routine. I want to start making more of those recipes I keeping pinning on Pinterest.

  8. Take the time to schedule posts for my other blog the night before. Since I'm busy all day with stuff at school I rarely have time to check tumblr. But y'all, the president is following that one. I need to be on my A-game.

  9. Keep to the maintenance schedule for my car. I was so lucky to get a brand new car in 2009. I was so diligent about oil changes and all of the stuff the book tells you to do for the first year and half that I owned it but over the last several months I've really slacked off. I need to stop letting time get away from me in between service visits.

  10. Attend a Kentucky game. It's been entirely too long. I miss Rupp Arena and Commonwealth Stadium.
