 As per usual, I have managed to wait long into January to post up my goals for the year.  Goals to me is a scary word though this year because I have already taken on more than ever before.  This month marks the beginning of me being a full time student and a full time professional.  I'm probably crazy, but I'm also really excited.  I've realized something - we only have this one opportunity to make life happen!  
As you may have seen in my previous post, this year is all about being curious for me.  I will be curious about my job, including a new position that I start on Monday with the testing group.  I will be curious about my school classes including those that I don't really want to take.  I will be curious about books and read a lot.  I will be curious about my art and experiment with new ideas.  I will be curious about crafts and try several new things.  I will be curious about my health and stay on top of getting back to being healthy.  I will be curious about my limits and try to stretch them.  Most of all, I will be curious about myself and explore who I am.
So, here are some goals that I set for myself this year.  My goals for the year are things I will strive for but not stress over.  They are things that I would really like to find time for.  My goals are things that will make life just a little more active, a little more enjoyable, and a little more lived.  I'm excited to try these out.  this year I am also going to try something new on the blog.  I'm going to start a new feature post about my goals and my progress with them.  I may add to my goals, I may subtract from them.  Life is all about changing and if I change as a person, chances are that my goals will change too, and that is what makes this year of curiosity such an exciting thing for me to look forward to.  Alright, here they are in no particular order:
