Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

 -William Arthur Ward


Happy 2008! New year, new me. Although I say this just about every year,  I honestly am going to make changes for the ’08.  I don’t have “resolutions”, just things I plan on improving this year.


  • Eat better.  My nutrition game is severely lacking. There’s a whole lot of vitamins and minerals I know I’m missing out on…
  • Save.  This year, my checking and savings accounts will not have negative balances. I plan to pay my bills on time, starting with my rent (renting from your parents has its privileges).
  • Travel.  My itinerary for 2008 includes Toronto, Miami, Paris, and Amsterdam. We’ll see if I actually make it.
  • Be a better girlfriend. My boyfriend is so patient and I feel like I haven’t been working up to my full potential. Never settle for less than your best.
  • Clean.  Now that I live alone, there aren’t any more excuses.
  • Entertain at my home.  This will mean I’ll have to learn to be a better cook and hostess.

What are your plans for the ’08?
