Goals and accomplishments


Inspired by this post, here is mine.

Eff yeah list!

  • Finished my thesis
  • Moved house
  • Got myself onto good meds (Pristiq)
  • Learnt how to make good coffee and got employee of the month in November
  • Survived the most devastating and unexpected breakup of my life
  • Slowly discovering that being single doesn’t completely suck and isn’t all that bad

My word for 2012 is confidence. I want and need to be more confident and assured in all that I do. I need to be confident I am a good person and that I deserve happiness and to explore what makes me happy, and have the confidence to do so. I need to be confident in who I am and what I stand for, and figure out those things on my own, rather than as part of a couple. I want to be confident being on my own. I’ll be starting to look for a “real job” next year as I just graduated, and confidence is a big selling point in getting a job. No one will hire me if I don’t believe in myself.
