I usually re-evaluate the year, check how I did in retrospect of last years goals, clean aware the clutter and begin anew. I am having a difficult time doing so this year. Although I pared down my goal list I am struggling. I registered for a class but it will really interfere with my sleeping during the day working nights. I am not sure if just focusing on getting in better shape and staying sober would not be a better couple of goals to work on. I get so overwhelmed with school and them lose focus on these other things.
I am struggling on this one.
save $25,000 for a deposit on a house.
learn to play the cello, I love the sound, it is amazingly meditative.
I think I am trying to hard to concentrate on the NOW that the future is ….... the future.

a masseuse. There is a school not too far away that offers a series of classes only on the weekends for a total cost of about $7,000. I guess I will continue to buy lottery tickets for this one. But perhaps waiting until I finish my Bachelors degree would be beneficial. Or would it be best to just go and do it right now? Lots to think about.
eat at a new restaurant once a month for all of 2013. I like this.
