So I love doing this because I truly believe that goals are more achievable when you write them down and have something to reference. I’ve done this for a while and 2015 was one of the few years that I didn’t conquer most of my goals, which is explained after the jump.
I definitely think there will be more chances for me to focus in on my goals this year and I’m ready to take on this huge challenge because I know what I want.
Goal/Resolution No.1: Become Part Of A Newsroom, which people probably think that I am but I’m not…I know, it’s a real head scratcher. I’m a contract employee through the NFTA and not actually a Channel 2 employee but that’s my ultimate goal. I’m such a big fan of working with good, successful, driven, and passionate teams and I just want to be a part of one SO INCREDIBLY BAD. For those who have never been in a newsroom, there’s a certain energy that gets people going and the organized flow of work just makes everything possible, I miss that feeling. My goal is to get back into that type of environment. In what capacity? Well, that’s a great question that I’m asking myself too. Updates to come when they’re available.
Goal/Resolution No. 2: 168 Days Of Working Out, okay, so this sounds completely ridiculous for those of you who go to the gym almost every day. I will admit, I had a really hard time getting to the gym last year with so much going on. But now, I’m going to hold myself accountable with a countdown. I spent $168 on a gym membership and I’m going to make it worth it. So I’ll match the number of days with the dollars I put forth toward the gym membership. I think that’s totally reasonable and the goal is to obviously go more than 168 times. This is just a convenient benchmark for myself.
Goal/Resolution No. 3: Be A Better Saver Of Money, I think sometimes I tell myself that I’m incredibly skilled with saving money when in reality, I’m not that great at it. I tend to spend money in small chunks and then a month later, I realize how much I actually spent. So the goal is to keep track of my money better and save more (which essentially means I’m putting it towards my loans, lets be honest). Looks like budgeting and I are going to have a real blast this year.
Goal/Resolution No. 4: Really Begin Preparing for Meteorology, I hate reusing stuff from last year but this time around, I’m really committed to taking Physics in the summer and Chemistry in the Spring of 2017. My mentor gave me a whole ton of things to read and links to resources that I should complete online, so obviously I’m going to take advantage of that. I am going to position myself as a candidate for meteorology school either at Oswego or Brockport. There’s no doubt that this is a career path that I want to take. And while this means more school, I know you want to see me as a weatherman. And so do I.
4 goals. 12 months. Bring it on. To see what I didn’t accomplish in 2015, keep reading after the jump.
