5. Take the GMATs so I can finish applying to Baruch.
---No. I'm done trying for Baruch..and I am done trying for teaching.

NEW 2009 (From July) Goals to be completed:

1. Be happy. --- Getting there!
2. Get out of the rut that I am in. --Done.
3. Stick with my blog and continue to grow it everyday and eventually publish something now that I know people will actually read it! --Done!

I wish I would have had resolutions on my blog- but I started in August! This year's resolutions should be interesting for me. Hope you have a lucrative rest of year! Keep blogging!!

You have a very acommplished blog dear. That's cool that you made a list. I don't think I did this last year. Hmmm...I think the only I thing I did was lose weight. I like your goal of bringing back the independent woman I once was. I think I need to do that too. Well there is always next year & this month. =)

Oh, THAT'S why I'm here! :D

But no seriously, keep up the good work.

I don't think I made a list of goals like that, but I did start the 101 in 1001 challenge...which I've been a failure at the past couple months. Still, since it's 3.5 years long, I can't really say I've failed until 2011 :D
I think I might need to make some resolutions for 2010...

I'm impressed you;ve completed so many of your goals!

I aim to achieve one new thing every year. This year it was to complete my Masters degree which I received the certificate for in the post today. Next year is to travel the world...I went to the travel agents and booked all my flights and stuff yesterday!

What happened to teaching? I guess because I'm sp crazy about it right now....

I'm amazed with how people can make lists of things to do. I wish I had it in me. Goodluck with 2010!
