The year 2012 marks a new year. To many souls, January 1st marks yet another chance to start over–a chance to make a new impression and to turnover a new leaf. Millions of people use the New Year as an excuse to make resolutions to improve their overall well-being. Are New Year’s Resolutions cliché? Maybe. But if you make them unique and tailored to YOU, then I think they can be very beneficial.
I always thought I should keep my New Years Resolutions Private. However, thanks to a few blogs that I follow, I have learned that the best way to achieve your goals is to write them down and make them public, because then you are more likely to follow through with your initial commitments.
I have a lot of resolutions for myself this year. I want to share some of my French-related ones here on this blog:
1. Most importantly, apply for the 2013-2014 Teaching Assistantship Program in France, and Fulbright ETA so I can get back to France and teach English upon graduation next year. (yay!)
2. Watch a new French movie every month (or watch an American movie in French).
3. Read at least three books in French this year.
4. Listen to more French Radio Stations / songs (awesome app. on my iPod)
In addition to…
5. Graduate from college / get my Bachelor’s Degree
6. Decrease cussing (eventually stop all together).
7. Obtain my weight / exercise goals
8. Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night (try to be on a consistent sleep schedule)
9. Become more active in Feminism
What are your resolutions?
