I'm a really goal oriented person. I did pretty well on my 2008 goals, only missing one of them. This year I have set several goals, and I have broken them up into financial and personal. So, here is the plan for 2009.
Pay off all non-student loan debt
This is my credit card and my scooter loan and it currently stands at around $6500.
Get Net Worth below -$20,000
This would mean increasing by Networth by about $7000.
Get Emergency Fund to $2,000
This currently stands at just under $500.
Get Student Loan to below $20,000
This means paying off $3,811 of my loan.
Reach my Target Weight
I gained about 20lb over the last year and a half and my target weight means that I need to lose 13 of them.
Be Published in a National Magazine
This was a tentative goal for last year and I am still hoping that it occurs.
Go to a different country other than England
I love to travel, and go to England often because my family lives there. This year I would really like to go to a different country as well as the UK. I'm shooting for France, but we have no firm plans.
Go on two auditions
I've done a little acting before, and I went on one audition in 2008, so I'm going to do it twice in 2009. It really helps me get outside of my comfort zone and I would love to get more stage experience.
Learn Basic French
I've wanted to do this forever but never actually set it as a goal.
Read 2 Books per Month
I have a bookcase full of unread books and I really want to knuckle down and read more. I'm a tad embarrassed about how little I read these days.
Get a Voice over agent
This is a really big goal and one that I hope to accomplish fairly quickly. I've done voice over work before and I really love it. I would like to sign with an agency because it's a hard market to break in to.
Get this blog to over 200 subscribers
At the moment I have 40 subscribers.
So that's the plan. We'll see how I do and I'll post progress as I make it. I know I'm being super ambitious with a few of these goals, but I think it's important to aim high.
