It's a new year! A new decade! I'm sitting here contemplating that in another ten year's time I'll be 30 years old. Wow. That seems so close, but seeing as I've only been alive for two decades so far, pretty sure that a decade will still take a while. (Let's hope.)

Here are some things I hope to happen in the next ten years:
  • Get married and start a family.
  • Get my book published.
  • Travel.

There are many more I'm sure, but we'll leave it at that since I have quite a bit to list yet.

Goals for the year 2010:
  • Continue to lose weight.
  • Do extensive revisions on my novel.
  • Strive for a positive and upbeat attitude.
  • Make more videos than I did in 2009.
  • Read. A Lot!
  • Strengthen existing friendships, and cultivate new ones.
  • And most importantly, do all that I can to strengthen my relationship with my Heavenly Father.

A few things I'm looking forward to:
  • NaNoWriMo 2010
  • Assistant Directing the spring musical at the Jr. High.
  • Getting a few church things under way.
  • Being part of the cast of the community show.
  • My 21st birthday! (Since I've turned 18, I've dreaded my birthdays. I'm excited for this one.)

It's going to be a great year. I can feel it!

(Update from last post: I did not get a New Year's Eve kiss. Sadness, right? But it was a great night nonetheless. I think a random kiss might have just made things awkward. Maybe next year.)

Sounds like you have some good goals. I think the travel goal might be a bit difficult without a job goal. ;) I think you should do that, save some money, and go on a trip with me somewhere really fun! What do you think?

Kate Weber said...

Travel was a goal for the decade...not the year. :P Working on finding a job, I've applied at a few places.

Also, a trip would be AMAZING! I completely agree.

So, by you commenting on my blog, are you getting back into blogging?

Alyson said...

I do realize that the travel thing was a 10 year goal, but I'm ready to go!! Plus, it takes some time to save up to go somewhere super cool. :)

Umm, probably not on the blogging thing. I just thought I would check since I got tweets that you had new posts. I'll try to check a little more often, but no promises.

BTW, I already have a plan for your Christmas present (or possibly birthday present). Hehehe, now you have to wonder ALL year what it could be...or maybe just until May.

Good luck on your goals! I hope you achieve all of them!

And, I totally know what Aly's present for you is. Teehee!

Kate Weber said...

What!? It's a conspiracy! Can't wait! It'll be fun to have something else to look forward to this year! :)

Sad that you aren't going to start blogging again. I need blogs to read. (I've never been much of a blog it's become an addiction.)

Julie! Can't wait to read your post about Paris! EEE! So excited!

We should start thinking of places to go on our really awesome trip. Planning is part of the fun, right?

So, what are your top 5 U.S. picks and top 5 foreign picks for a trip? I'll brainstorm and try to figure out mine as well.

Kate Weber said...

Hmmm...US: New York, Washington (State), Hawaii, Alaska, and Chicago?

Foreign: Italy, Australia, England, Spain, Greece.

Yeah, I think that's about right. (Foreign is hard, there are so many place I want to go, and US, I just want to visit all the states, and revisit others.)

Well, NaNoWriMo is coming up for sure. I'm excited for it.

And you should totally visit me, too. :-P
