A Year In Review: 2009

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Wow, it is almost 2010. Can you believe it? Remember when people thought the world was coming to an end back in 1999?! Now 10 years later. The last few weeks of the year, I usually tend to draw back from civilization and take a survey on my on life. I reflect on where I am, where I was, and where I want to be. This has definitely been a challenging year. I can honestly say that growing up is one of the hardest things to do. Truly. I feel like I have shed enough tears and gone through enough agony. It's funny how we always say the next year "will be your year", but I honestly feel like 2010 is going to be a good year.

I started my blog on January 9, 2009. So in a few days, my blog will be 1 years old. So you know what that means....a giveaway!!! Not sure what it will be...but I will come up with something. One of my first blog posts was a list of things I wanted to accomplish in '09. So let's check them out and see how bad I did:

27 Things to Accomplish in '09
1. Go to church consistently and get my life right with Mr. G-O-D
Definitely room for improvement but feeling really good about where our relationship is going!
2. Spend more time with Mr. Man (my son)
I don't like to air my personal life on my blog but one of little man's wishes came true this year. Thank God.
3. Be a better listener and friend to my girlfriends
Again room for improvement but I definitely like where this is going!
4. Create a budget and stick with it & pay off 75% of my debt
I did better in regards to spending...I hardly bought stuff for myself this year but still in debt. Which sucks.
I gained instead of lost...ha!
6. Finish organizing my room & closet
Almost done!!!
7. Create an emergency fund ($1000 to start)
I accomplished this task then spent it. Bad girl.
No comment.
9. Get a promotion or a 2nd job/hustle (whichever comes first)
Almost started but I didn't follow through
10. Travel (D.C to start and then Cali)
I definitely plan on traveling in '10.
11. Get more grown women clothes
This sounds so juvenile...but definitely improving.
12. Cook more
Spending more time with the beau has caused me to cook more. I would love to take some culinary classes. Cooking is fun when it's not a chore.
13. Volunteer more
14. Buy a CHI and fix my own hair (grow hair to shoulder length)
Hair has grown a lot but no new iron yet.
15. Take more pictures / buy a better camera
Bought a new camera but haven't taken a lot of pictures.
16. Don't go 2 to 3 days without blogging. YAY!
17. Look into refinancing my car
18. Run at least 2 5ks this year
19. Get a few more tats and piercings (i know kinda silly right-eh)
20. Create more memories with the beau
21. Learn to bake
22. Floss and brush before going to bed
23. Drink more water
I usually drink a lot of water but this year, I have been addicted to soda. I never used to drink soda. I need to get this under control.
24. Purchase really nice sheets and goose down comforter
25. Keep up with beauty regimen and wear makeup more often
26. Buy studded earrings
27. Purchase another staple handbag on sale of course.
