So, I realized the other day that a lot of my goals that I had made in the past are well...complete. Which, that's pretty awesome to say because that means I have accomplished a lot.
So, it's time to reassess my goals that I have made and make some new goals.
1. Complete a 5 K
This means I need to get to walking. As of tomorrow, I plan to sign up for my first 5 K, the Color Vibe. It is in Flint on September 21. If things go well, I would like to also sign up for the Color Me Rad 5K in October. Today I made the pact with myself to start walking. I hooked Tonks up to a leash and we started with a mile. I may had to carry her some because she was being stubborn but she got the feel for the leash eventually (and was enjoying the attention). I have mapped out several different routes in my neighborhood that will get me up to my goal.
2. Get my CPhT
Diplomat is awesome that they provide training, paid study hours and lots of refreshers on everything I'll need to take this test....and then pays for the test! Since Kevin will be going back to school in September, I will miss campus. So I decided this fall is time for me to get back to the books myself. My goal is to have taken my test (and passed) by November.
3. Get more involved in the Alumni Association
I emailed the head of the UM-Flint Alumni Association to show my interest and I plan on finding times to volunteer and attend events with the alumni association. I spent 5 years at UM-Flint and it'll be cool to help give other students a great time as well. Plus, there are some perks of being an alumni that I plan to cash in on.
4. Do Another "A Month of Giving."
Last year, it was SO much fun. This year is unlucky number 23. I have a new group of people to share my generosity with and I invite you to join me :)
5. Get a Promotion
This one may actually come with number 2. After getting my CPhT, I will be able to internally apply for many positions in Diplomat, and as a college grad, I am qualified for even more positions than my coworkers. This will take some work and determination, but I am ready!
