2008!

Happy birthday to me!

Happy birthday dear me!

I'm 26 today and am looking forward to a really great year. I know it's four days into the new year but I always consider my birthday as a starting point for the year. This year I have some hopes and wishes for the year.

1. Finish my Master's degree.
I have been going to U of L for 2 years now in hopes of finishing a Master's degree in Spanish and I have just one semester left. I am so ready for it to be completely finished, degree in hand, and raise in the work check. I have enjoyed it but it's an incredible amount of work on top of my other things.

2. Get healthy.
I want to not have to have the hope of getting healthy for 2009 but rather maintain healthiness. I was there before so I know how to get back there...it's just doing it!

3. Get published.
I want so bad to be published in some sort of papercrafting magazine. I'm not sure that my work is up to par but I love doing it.

4. Enjoy the here and now.
I think sometimes I focus too much on the next break from work or a big event coming up....or even, okay especially, summertime. I need to enjoy the present and even though I have to get up and go to work each weekday, there's always something to enjoy at the time.

Have a great 2008!
