Goodbye 2015 Hello 2016

It is the last day in 2015!

What an amazing year. I finally got back into my own classroom. I feel settled- like I'm hitting my stride. We're making a life here. I made some awesome new friends.  I finally got my naked Sundays back. I got my nose pierced- something I was thinking about doing way back in 2014. So it wasn't a outstanding year but it was a good year.

I'm trying to decide what my theme is going to be in 2016. I usually try pick a theme that embodies my goals and the things I want to achieve in the upcoming year. I'm leaning towards my theme being "improve." 

One of my major goals this year is to travel more. I didn't travel as much as I wanted this year. I already have a trip to Florida planned and strongly thinking about taking another cruise. 

I want to take care of my health more. I've been working out three times a week and enjoying it.  Now that it is a strong habit I want to tackle sleeping more. I've been a night owl my whole life but seriously 3-4 hours of sleep a night is not healthy.  

I feel like I say this every year ....I want to visit my friends more. One of my very best friends keeps pointing out that I have never flown to visit her! It may not happen this year but I at least want to have a plan to visit her soon. 

 I want to try new things like wearing lipstick! This reminds me of the pretty girls rocks challenge. I'm a tom-boy from way back! I just started wearing full-face makeup last year (one of my goals from last year).  I usually only wear lipstick on special occasions. This year I want to take the next step and wear (bold) lipstick- when I'm not teaching. 

Another major goal is to have FAITH! As someone with anxiety I worry non-stop and this is in direct conflict with my religion. I struggle HARD with this one. I know this is something I will probably always struggle with but I want to be better.
