Dang, it’s 2016 and it’s been a while since I’ve written. I guess I got caught up in my everyday life that I completely ignored my blog. I’m sorry blog… and the readers. But it’s a new year and and I’m determined to be on here more (or at least once a week).
Back June I gave a progress report on how my goals were going. I was doing okay from what I remember and I can tell you right now I didn’t quite complete my list, but I guess that happens. So here are my results for last year’s goals.
Sly’s 2015 Goals – the Results:
– Post at least once a week on my blog… failed.
I can’t say it’s a total fail. I did good up until the end of the year, when life got a little crazy for me. This might be another goal for this year, but we’ll see.
– Travel to a new country… failed.
I was unable to make it out of the United States this year, which kind of stunk. But I’m already looking at places to go to this year so I think this one will make it on this year’s goals list.
– Learn 24 new recipes… Completed December 2015.
In my time off the internet, I spent a lot of it cooking and learning new recipes. I’m happy to say I can make 24 new dishes, even if some are simple ones. Of course, not all were perfect, but I still learned to make them… so it counts.
– Try something new… Completed November 2015.
I actually tried doing a 10-day green smoothie cleanse in early November and I did feel really great after it. I was a little moody the first few days though.
– Get a part-time job after my 16th birthday… completed April 8th, 2015.
I actually got a part-time job/internship before my birthday, so that was a huge accomplishment for me this year!
– Get my girlfriend a super amazing present for our 1 year anniversary in March… completed March 1st, 2015.
Yes, I did spoil my lady this year for our first anniversary…. and you can read all about that adventure here.
– Increase my running stamina to 3 miles… Completed July 2015.
I completed my goal of running three miles with no trouble this summer. It was a great accomplishment for me.
– Get my driving permit in May and my license by December 31st… failed.
I’ve got my permit, so that’s half of it. But unfortunately I was not able to get in to take my driver’s license test before the end of the year. I am happy to say that I do have an appointment this month to take the test and hopefully pass.
So I didn’t do too bad. I actually completed more than I thought. I’m currently working on my goals for this year, so you can expect that post to be up in a few days.
Happy New Year everyone!
