So overall, I feel pretty good about my New Year's Resolutions. I have sold my house, I have received my teaching degree. I have lost 25 lbs since graduating in May. I have received a promotion at work which was a temporary contract so I can still pursue teaching in the New Year. I found it quite fulfilling and challenging and found that the skills I developed over the past 2 years really came in handy with my position. I think that I succeeded in every category. I feel that I improved my health and finances, organized my life, and got on the road to a new career. My goal for this month, to end it off, is to get my paperwork in order so that I can sub in the New Year and get ready to apply for a teaching position for next year.
