What are your plans for this year?

Haven't posted much the last 6 months... so I've been pretty busy lately. Got caught up in campaign work, met the President (!), have been job searching and spending time with family post-Japan ever since. Looking for work out in New York and D.C. and planning a move soon. How is everyone? UPDATES FOLKS. What are you up to this year? I just want to find some good, creative work -- get settled into a new city, and enjoy the last year and a half of my 20s .

Re: What are your plans for this year?

Finish my BA. That's it right now. All other long term plans have been thrown out the window. I'll likely move back to IL and eventually apply for a masters while working, but that's all a bit nebulous. I just want to get through the year and be a more whole person at the end of it.

John's Plan for 2013 is to:

1) Not die.
2) Not lose any important limbs.
3) Finally get back to work.

Re: What are your plans for this year?

This year I'll try, probably for the last time, to find love and build a lasting relationship.

And I have to finish this novel I'm writing, but that's going to be comparatively simpler.

Good luck! With both. I think by the end of the year I won't hope to be in a serious relationship, but I'd like to be in a place where I'd consider it again. Giving myself some time off from that, though I'd consider more casual relationships.

Re: What are your plans for this year?

A few things:

- My customary 2-week trip to New York City (in September).

- In May I plan to drive to Kansas City for the weekend to see a Yankees/Royals series.

- In July, I will see 8 more ballparks (Mariners, Diamondbacks, Angels, Dodgers, Athletics, Giants, Padres, Pirates) so I can check them off the list.

I've been thinking of selling some of my crafts online, and this year I want to go for it.

Re: What are your plans for this year?

Continue working on my second Master's, continue the job I'm currently doing (not my chosen career but I do enjoy my coworkers and the pay), try to better manage my anxiety, that's about it. Things should pretty much stay the same this year as I slowly work towards 2014, which should include many changes. Next year my boyfriend will have finished his PhD, I will have finished my Master's, we will likely be moving and searching for new jobs. Pretty eventful compared to this year.

Re: What are your plans for this year?

I think this will be a big year for me.

I'm starting my new job at the IRS in about two weeks. This is going to be my first good job out of college (decent pay, benefits, nice working hours) so I'm excited to get dive in and get started. Planning to use most of that income to start making serious payments on my student loans and build some kind of financial security. I'm also hoping to move sometime between march and the end of summer (I've been living with my parents since August) Might bring along a good friend of mine as a roommate.

Those are the more concrete plans. It would always be nice to find the girl of my dreams.

QFT

In fact, I could have written this word for word.

I think the most important thing I need to focus on is figure out what I want to do with my life and get some sort of education for it. I have three unfinished degrees all in areas that now have little or no appeal to me.

Probably the easiest thing I can do for the year is get back into shape. Over the holiday, my brother, cousins and I were discussing hiking the Appalachian Trail summer 2014, but as it is, I don't think I last half-a-day.

The same for me, entering a beautiful romantic relationship that lasts longer than a few weeks. But I won't say this will be my last attempt.

This summer I want to learn to operate a small sail boat, it looks like fun.

I suspect finding that someone special will be on many peoples list of things to do this year. It's on mine but I'm not hopefull of ticking it off the list.

But good luck with that goal.
