More Goals

Reading through all the New Year's posts and articles made me think of a few more things I'm going to try to do this year.

On Lauren Conrad's website* they had a list of 10 resolutions everyone should make. One of them overlaps with a resolution that apparently Pope Francis has for us all. That is to stop wasting food. I am very guilty of this. I'll buy something and use it for one meal, but never find a use for the rest of it. During the Farm Share I was super guilty of wasting fresh veggies! I know. I'm ashamed, but sometimes I just couldn't find a use for a whole head of cabbage when I had a busy week. So I'm going to clean the fridge of all out of date food and focus and using every thing I buy or putting it in the freezer before it goes bad.

Second goal is to keep learning. Last Spring I learned how to screen print, but then I didn't sign up for anything new. I'm going to try to keep something on the calendar. I found some cool online resources yesterday that I'm excited to try out.

General Assembly- https://generalassemb.ly/ has some cool classes and workshops in DC. Focused around web design, business and technology.

Codecademy- http://www.codecademy.com/ teaches coding starting at the simplest level. I already learned to make an animation from my name and start a mini solar system.

Coursera- https://www.coursera.org has college courses from all over, some are free and some are paid. You can take a class or they have specializations that have a series of courses.

*Yes I occasionally read Lauren Conrad's site. I may have a small girl crush on her.

Meeting and dating Brian, wasn't a goal, but has been a highlight of 2014

Happy New Year!

I know its been awhile since I've blogged, but I thought with the new year I should check in. 

My goals for 2014:

Year goals
Blog more consistently (I need to keep my parents happy)- This didn't happen at all, I dropped off the blogsphere in June
See something at the Studio Theater (for real this time)- SUCCESS I saw COCK with a group of girlfriends, it was a great production that we all enjoyed.

Monthly goals
Craft/Sew something new - I did do a lot of crafting including sewing a quilt top and making a bunch of bags for Christmas gifts.
Go somewhere new- I went several new places including Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina, Bonn, Germany and Tomball, Texas
Eat somewhere new- Eating new places is not hard in DC. New lunch places include Shophouse and Cava grill. Finally ate at the Pig, and am continuing to eat new pizza with Pizza Club.

January goals
Run at least one mile a day- I think I missed one day....
Do the Nike Training Club App Get Lean Advanced Program- Completed
Organize my photos and backup them up and print some- I printed some photos, but didn't do much organizing.

I don't remember making any more monthly goals...

For 2015 I want to:

Reset my healthy eating
Run a Marathon- I'm registered for the Rock 'n Roll DC Marathon in March, the first month of training has gone ok, but now I'm encountering milage I'm unfamiliar with.
Journal- I've actively journaled for much of my life, I'd like to get back to the pen and paper way. 
Meal Plan- I've been doing a lot of last minute shopping and cooking. For some reason this stresses me out so I would like to do less of it.
Focus on Happiness
