As the second part to my “Adios, 2019!” post yesterday, I wanted to follow that up with a more upbeat and positive outlook on the new year – the year which began today – 2020!
(I plan on posting about my awesome Christmas and New Years celebrations in Texas the past 10 days very soon. This is about what I want to see in 2020.)
As a kid, I always thought about 2020 and beyond, and wondered what craziness the future would hold. For sure, I imagined flying Jetson cars and hoverboards like in “Back to the Future”, but alas, we have nothing like that in our universe thus far. While I say that, I’m amazed at how society and technology has progressed over the years. When I was a little kid building my own programs with my Texas Instruments TI 99/4A back in 1983, I never could have imagined all that we have now.
Since 2019 was mostly a huge disappointment, despite my graduation and my cousin’s wedding, I would like to go on record by saying that I sincrely have great expectations for 2020 and beyond. I say ‘beyond’ because I know that it takes time to improve one’s life, and I don’t want to put myself into a 365 day box with anything. Instead, I like to be positive and set some rough goals for myself. Not resolutions, but… things I hope to acheive, or make great progress in. My list is below! (Feel free to share yours in comments or to me personally, as many of you seem to do. I welcome all responses or comments!)
What I hope to accomplish in 2020 *(and beyond)… in no praticular order:
- Visit my ex (and friend) Steve in England
- Work out twice per day, eat healthier, and get back down to 200 pounds!
- Find my future husband
- Visit Europe
- Spend more quality time with my pets
- Create new friendships, and cultivate existing ones
- Be as supportive and trusting towards new people as I can be
- Continue to study hard and stay on the Dean’s list in Grad School!
- Sell some of my stuff and make space in my apartment
- Begin saving or looking for a house
That’s about it. I have great expecations for 2020, and probably the most important to me is my health, and looking for my soul mate and future husband.
Here’s to 2020! I hope your holidays were as amazing as mine were.
Much love to you all.
