A post about goals. Get it? Oh ha. I’m hilarious.
So that’s what last weekend happened to be about. Nothing like heading back to your roots to re-evaluate where you are going with your life. Or perhaps it was the 8 hours driving back by myself that I spent
blogging thinking about life?
Either way, I have renewed my commitment to a couple of things.
1) Paying off student debt as quickly as possible. Not my student loan… that can whither away itself straight out of my pay. But getting that credit card under control and ridiculous overdraft that is just hanging over me causing stress. I’ve been half-arsedly (yeah, not a word.) saving to pay it off but keep finding things that require spending *couspeedingticketsgh* so it isn’t looking as healthy as usual. I am now going to be living frugally. Yes. Truly.
2) Save for France. I have been dreaming of a trip to France for yeeeeears… since I was 12 in fact. A friend of mine, who was in my French class at school, has been living in London for the last few years (and is moving to Spain soon with her boy – exciting!) and recently took a trip to Paris and said that I just HAVE to go. And that I’d love it. And I will. I have heard the horror stories and I am still determined to love it, well, they speak French, how could I not love it? – so I need to get there. ASAP.
I also thought a lot about my worky work stuff and I got quite excited about the future and where I am heading with ‘my career’ so sort of re-established my 5 year plan. Never fear, it is pretty vague… ‘move on up in the world’ is about the extent of it.
I’ll write more about Rotorua perhaps tomorrow, but here is the fruits of my labour on Friday. A teeny hat for a cousin’s impending arrival. The hat was a test run for something a bit exciting… I will let you know more as it unfolds.
