Cheers to a New Year

In 2010, I left teaching and coaching, moved to Ireland to join Matt, joined an American Women’s Club and became secretary, started this blog, pursued my writing career, turned 25, made new friends, and visited Brussels, Bruges, Majorca, and Paris. I guess you could say that I’m highly intrigued by the prospect of 2011 now! Matt and I rested in November and December, but I think my travel bug is coming back. As well as my desire to travel, I have a few New Year’s resolutions I’d like to share in honor of the holiday.

  • Places I want to go in 2011: Switzerland, London, Barcelona, Morocco, and Turkey. We did 4 last year, so I’ll match 2010 and raise it one more destination for the next year. It won’t be easy, but I think Matt and I are starting to get a hang of this traveling thing.

  • I already work for a non-profit, but I’d love to do more charity work. If it happens to be with Suas, then that’ll be wonderful, because I love what they stand for.

  • I want to exercise more. I know this is a typical resolution for most people, but the Irish weather has made me lazy. Since coming home, I’ve reconnected with my love for running, so I’ll have find a gym and keep it up.

  • I want to get my work published in more periodicals. Having my first published article done, I feel ready to kick off and get this writing career on it’s feet.

  • Last, but not least, I vow to update this blog more often than I already do. Not only will this help me with my last point, but I enjoy finding the fun, odd, and annoying Irish experiences and sharing them with you.

So, to all of you, my faithful followers of 2010, thank you for giving me a reason to write! To my family and friends, thank you for supporting all of the changes this past year. Everyone, stay tuned for 2011; I have a feeling it’ll be an interesting ride.

    and I vow to not get behind on reading your blogs! I either missed or completely forgot as I am old, that you are now officially published. What was the article and where was it published?

    You are one very lucky girl to be able to live your dreams! You go, Girl!

  2. Happy New Year! Excited about your travels and writing career? Any thoughts about returning to the states to long-term sub? hehe!
