First day of school

Hello 2016! New Years resolutions!

Last year’s resolutions:

1.Travel 5 new places (inside or outside of the US)
a.Thailand – technically that was the end of last year into this year. A wonderful trip though!
b.Harrisonburg, VA – went on a roommate adventure to the Green Valley Book Fair! Along with that we saw a Lavender farm, Grand Caverns and more.
c.Dover, DE –traveled to the Victrola museum (as well as a flea market and a tour of the downtown)
d.Natural Bridge, VA- to see Foamhenge (totally worth the trip!) as well as the Natural bridge.
e.Johnson City, TN- To visit Lizzy and see Aunt Debbie.

When looking at the list I really haven’t gone that many new places. Thinking back, I did start a new 12-month principal position in February, which has greatly limited my travel away. However, that didn’t stop me from doing things in the area and having friends visit me. I call it a win-win.

2.Lose 25 pounds and keep it off (for real!)
Yeah, maybe next year.

3.Learn something new
I learned and tried so many new things this year!
a. Zip lining
b. Stand-up paddle boarding
c. Glassblowing
d. Strawberry and apple picking
e. Wine and paint nights
f. The Color Me Rad run
g. And went to a wide variety of shows/concerts including: B-52s, Cleese and Idol, Finding Neverland, Spring Awakening, Kinky Boots, The Pirates of Penzance, Bollywood Masala Orchestra and Dancers of India and more.

This year’s resolutions:
1.Travel 5 new places (inside or outside of the US)
2.Try or learn 5 new things.
3.Lose 25 pounds and keep it off.

Here we go 2016!
