- Learn to eat more healthily, and try to cook more.
- Find reasons to be excited about living in New York City, and come up with several places and events that I can share with people who are new to the city.
- Learn Spanish at least well enough to communicate on a basic level with my many, many Spanish-speaking neighbors in New York.
- Make time for a vacation with my three best friends.
- Go to at least five places I've never been to.
- Look for the joy in everything, and truly investigate my reasoning for doing the things I do (Why? Because, as Cheryl Klein reminded me that Friedrich Nietzsche said, "He who has a why can endure any how."). Along with that, drop activities that I can't justify and stop wasting time on things that don't bring me joy.
- Set time aside each month to set and evaluate realistic goals for my own professional development.
- Get an even firmer grasp on my new position, and begin volunteering for projects outside of my regular job description that interest me or that will develop my skills.
- Make networking on a day-to-day basis as much of a priority as I've made it when I've actively been job-searching.
Hold me to them, reader friends!
