There's a new baby in my boyfriend's family! Hooray! This is his sister and her adorable little girl who was born last night. I feel like having a baby is a GREAT way to start the new year, and I'm sure her year is going to be packed full of great experiences with this little ball of cuteness.
I hope that all of my readers had a HAPPY NEW YEAR! I am a little late with the well-wishes, but better late than never. I've been pondering how I might live this next year a little differently than last year. I know I'll change and grow as a person, and you never know what huge life changes I might make! I graduated college this year, which is a pretty big deal from what I hear. I also spent this year at my first post-college job (part time until June), and I really couldn't ask for a better place or a better group of people to work with. I bought the camera of my dreams this year, after saving my money for what felt like forever. It's was a great year!
Here are a few goals that I might try to carry out this year:
- Think before I buy, and spend a limited amount each week. I tend to go through weeks where I spend well over my "budget," and I always suffer for it later.
- Take the next step in my relationship. Maybe that's engagement...maybe not. I really don't have control over that :)
- Work hard on learning more about photography and how I can improve. I don't want to plateau, and I fear that's what's happening.
- Keep focusing on eating and exercise habits. I've been doing good for a few months, and I want to keep moving forward. I still need to work on eating more vegetables.
As a sort of commemoration for 2010, I made a set on Flickr of my favorite images of the year. I guess I can compare those with next year's to see if I achieved goal #3!
Well, that's all for now. Best wishes in 2011, everyone! Let's see how long it takes to get used to writing 11 until 10. I'm guessing at least 2 weeks for me.
