The New Year always fills me with hope of new dreams for the upcoming year. New hopes, new goals.
This year is no exception. Except I have found myself looking back on 2010 with bitter-sweet feelings.
I didn't get as much done in my life as I wanted. My book is still in revisions, my school work still hangs over my head, my house is just as messy this year as last year. I've lost a few good bloggy friends, but made some that I really care about.
It's been a roller coaster year.
I expect this year will be just as tumultuous.
I've started a new cleaning program (I can do my laundry in 4 minutes flat...with a little pumped up music...it's the most awesome thing ever) (okay, it's a little more like 7, but still, I love it!).
I will get my degree this year. I cannot begin to tell you how difficult this has been for me. I have wanted to give up so many times, but I am only two classes away from smartness.
I've learned that writing vs revisions is something that is both exciting and tedious. A new idea is so amazing to get down on paper, but it isn't until I get into the description and word building that the story really comes to life.
So I am looking forward to this new year, hoping to achieve new goals that will teach and mold me.
It's going to be a great year!
