Wow, it has been a long time since I last posted. I’ll be surprised if anyone still reads this thing! 🙂
A lot has gone on in my life since I last posted. Some things I won’t share, but I will share a few things. First, I finally got a job in September! That means I have a real school librarian job, with a salary AND benefits. I hardly know what to do with myself! 🙂 I was off for 2 weeks over Christmas and it was great knowing I would be paid at the end of it. It’s the joy of working 9 months and stretching out your pay to 12.
So I am usually one of those people who makes a New Years resolution and breaks it about a month in. Okay, I lie. About a week in. Oh, who am I kidding; it’s more like 3 days.
Well, in the name of cliches and solidarity, I am making some more goals for the new year. I decided to post them here because a) it gives me a little accountability and b) one of them involves the blog!
- Become a more disciplined person. This not only includes the standard “eat better, exercise more” but also speaks to maintaining a cleaner house and a more productive life. I want to be more disciplined in my time with the Lord. I can’t JUST desire to be a Proverbs 31 woman, but I actually have to do something about it!
- Be more transparent with my friends. I have a problem with being closed off with some people. Most people. Not that I’m going to tell everyone every detail of my life, but I think I need to be more open and honest. I need to be less shy. I also need to keep in mind the words of this article from Boundless. To be transparent and a little blunt, part of the reason I am probably still single (besides God’s timing) is that I tend to be very closed off around guys. This article really opened my eyes to that.
- Stick to a budget. Now more than ever I need to be mindful of where my money is going and be a good steward.
- Blog more! This blog will likely turn into more cooking than crafting, but I also want to add some posts about what the Lord is teaching me and general life updates.
I am looking forward to the new year and what it will bring. Anyone else have resolutions or goals for the new year?
