2013 Resolutions

I decided to set goals for myself this year instead of doing resolutions, since--like most people--I just throw those out the window within the first month anyway.

It was a good but crazy year for me. Unfortunately this was not true of my goals.

1. Read 100 books. 
This obviously did not happen. In fact, it was the worst reading year for me since I started keeping track of exactly how many books I've read in 2010.

2. Read 10 classics. 
I was a lot closer with this one. I read six classics over the year. Most of them were assigned for class, but it still counts. 

3. Complete 25 hours of volunteer work
This one was complicated by my lack of access to volunteer opportunities that are local enough that I can walk to them.

4. Do push-ups every morning for a month
I think I made it a week in the beginning of the month. Push-ups aren't really my thing.

5. Do five things I've never done before
This one I actually accomplished! I went to a jazz ensembles performance on campus, donated blood, attended Relay for Life (where I spent the entire night and walked about 20 miles), went to a concert, and hard boiled eggs (it counts).

Here's to an even better 2014!
