I’ve expressed seventeen of my goals for the next twenty-five months, both for 2012 and 2013, but I have the far-reaching goals for 2014 to tell you about. Fasten your seat belts, these are some of the craziest ideas I have ever had.
January 2014: Run a marathon. At Disney.
This is easily the most insane idea I may have ever thought of. Honestly. But, I truly want to showcase my strength and ability and I think the best way for me to do so is to run a marathon. What better place than Walt Disney World with Mickey and Minnie cheering me on? I cannot wait to run through the park, get a medal for accomplishing my goal, then taking a ride on Space Mountain.
February 2014: Take a class.
There are many different ideas floating around right now. Getting my teaching certification. Getting my second Masters in educational administration. Just taking a knitting class to be a better crafter. Whatever I decide upon, I would like to continue educating myself for the rest of my life. I’ve been out of school less than three months now, and it is breaking my heart that I have no class to look forward to.
March 2014: Be a published writer.
My passion for writing has been more pronounced at this point in my life than ever before. I hope to be published on an on-line magazine, website, newspaper, etc. Just something substantial that I can be truly proud of.
April 2014: Earn a professional award/raise.
I have worked hard for my entire life to be a great person, student, and employee. At this point, I would like to be rewarded by an award, raise, or ribbon. Really anything would suffice. I understand this is a goal I will be working on daily, and I am excited to see what work I produce before this time!
May 2014: Attend the Kentucky Derby.
This has been a goal of mine for years, but I only have a few more chances to attend before my Louisville friends will be moving out of the city. Let’s hope I can make it in 2013 AND 2014!
June 2014: Reduce student loans significantly.
I would ideally have one-quarter of my loans paid off, but I think having a significant chunk paid off would be a great help at this point in my life.
July 2014: Travel to Europe.
Summer 2011 was when I fell in love with Germany, and I have been itching to go back and explore more of Europe every singe day. I hope to travel to France and Italy next time, but I wouldn’t mind being back in Munich.
