19 Goals for 2019

I am not a New Year resolution kind of a gal. Don’t get me wrong, I make goals that are like resolutions, I just don’t tie them to start on January 1st. I’m on a rolling deadline instead. πŸ™‚ However, this year I was thinking of overarching goals I had for myself for 2019 (read: not resolutions…lol). Let’s see how well I stick to them this year:

  1. Plan at least two “big” trips per year
  2. Re-do the floors in our newΒ houseΒ (currently there are 5 different types of flooring, that has got to go!)
  3. Work out at least 3 times a week (I’m a solid twice a week now, looking to up my game)
  4. Try not to buy any books (totally seems like an odd goal, I know, but I own hundreds of books and have not read them all. Seems like a waste, no?)
  5. Get at least one paid workshop this summer (teachers gotta eat in June & July somehow!)
  6. Organize our closets that have become scary places to dump things once we moved (again, seems stupid but those closets are black holes for junk)
  7. Learn how to keep plants alive (since we bought our house I have been dreaming of cultivating an inviting outdoor space but I kill every plant I touch)
  8. Increase my work/home life balance (I’m so much better in year 5 of teaching but I still spend wayyyy too long planning overly complicated lessons)
  9. Try to keep up my Italian & Spanish (I just don’t like learning languages but I certainly enjoy using them)
  10. Design and execute a laundry room make-over (figured if I started with the smallest room in the house I could gather steam from there lol)
  11. Read (aka not listen to audiobooks) at least 12 books this year
  12. Explore more local places in Central Florida
  13. Continue to up our liturgical living at home (perhaps by decorating an “altar” space)
  14. Write at least one AP Art History post per-month (ideally it would be per week but I know I can’t cut that)
  15. Practice yoga at least once a week (I guess this is technically part of my goal of working out at least 3 times a week but, hey, I needed another point)
  16. Get better at making meals “out of thin air” (aka things already in my pantry) – I love good food but I don’t need to spend as much as I do on groceries
  17. Travel to an international destination at least once (I’m already going to Greece for Spring Break sooo CHECK!)
  18. Practice my baking skills (nothing beats homemade bread!)
  19. Learn to be more patient & less judgy (yikes this is hard for me)

Wow coming up with 19 goals was tough. Some are kinda weak but they’re all good things for me so here we go 2019!!!

  1. I’m trying to get my closets organized too! A little bit of an undertaking but I know I will feel better after I’ve decluttered. Let me know if you need anyone to join you on the Central Florida adventures!
