It would be rude of me not to wish you all a Merry Christmas. So, of course, Merry Christmas to all!
But secondly, and more importantly... New Year's is only a week away. Time to start thinking about those resolutions!
Here are a few of mine:
First, join the gym
This one is sure to happen! Going every day is just not likely to happen, so I'll set the goal for myself of 4-5 times a week. When it gets to be the fall I think I may sign up for a ballet class again to get my flexibility
Secondly, STOP SPENDING MONEY. If I am to be able to afford Yale's tuition, I need to start saving money. I'm still a few thousand dollars in debt. Once I pay that off, I would like to be able to save around $1000 a month. This is definitely within the realm of possibility, it might just depend on some sacrifices. Such as... taking coffee from home instead of buying it at Starbucks
Yale will be worth it.
Thirdly, study for the GMAT and get a score of over 700.
Fourthly, continue my MBA research and get a top 5 list narrowed down with a reasonable selection of reach schools (YALE!), schools I *should* get into, and a safety school. So ideally, I will have Yale, 3 good schools, and a safety.
Fifthly, stop being obsessed with Yale
Sixthly, create a social life for myself that does not revolve around my commute to and from work every day. My commute takes a lot out of me, so that I don't feel like doing anything when I get home. This has got to change. I'm living life but not enjoying it as I should be
That's all I've got for now
Hopefully when I look back at this list in May I'll have rock hard abs, be able to do splits again, and have gotten a 720 on my GMATs
Happy New Years everyone!
