For some reason, a new year tends to make me feel a bit nervous and regretful, like I didn't accomplish enough the year before and didn't start the new year in a grand enough way. I guess it it is my perfectionist tendencies rearing their head. When it comes to resolutions, I hate the guilt that comes with breaking them so instead I make plans, like a master goals/to-do list for the upcoming year. Here is my 2010 version:

  • get to 100 blog followers
  • practice sketching
  • finally learn to sew
  • learn a new way to curl my hair
  • make money
  • (either making/selling things or an actual job)
  • test through my gold dances
  • get an ice dancing partner
  • land my triples
I guess you could consider these resolutions, but in my mind they are goals.
Am I the only one who feels this way? What are your plans?

I totally agree with you! I've been doing that my whole life and decided to change it this year for 2010 :) i hope i stick to them!

great goals! :)

I know what you mean - there is always something regretful about passing another new year's... like you haven't accomplished your goals for yet another year! Good luck with your new year's goals; very cool about the figure skating (I really have to say it's amazing you do that - because it looks so terrifying!). Happy new year!

Definitely goals girl! I'm siding with you on this one - no resolutions list, but rather a goals list. It's amazing how you can ice skate!! I wish I could, but I didn't even manage to get on the ice at least once this year ugh :(

lovely blog btw :)

I love making goals and resolutions. most times I don't finish all of them but hey that's that:)
I'm liking your goals, I can really relate to a lot of them like: getting a job, finding a new hairstyle and getting more blog followers:D
I wish you the best of luck with yours!
