My biggest regret was getting a dog. I love her dearly, but I sure wish I would've waited until I had a big enough place to corral all of her belongings and had the money to afford everything she's sucked out of me. She's captured my heart now and there's no denying that. Another regret is not networking sooner. Since I finished my internship and gotten this part-time job, I've realized that to make it anywhere in this field you must know people. I should have participated in more CEUs and gotten to know more people. I've also realized that time is only moving faster the older I get. The song "You're Gonna Miss This" by Trace Adkins comes to mind. It's important to be driven for what you want, but it's also important to stop and smell the roses. One day, I'm going to look back on all of this and wish for it back.
This year is going to be the year for me, I can feel it. I'm graduating in March and am hopefully going to land a full-time job so I can quit living this paycheck-to-paycheck life. I've created a Bucket List instead of a Resolution List because it seems more practical and less overwhelming. These items are more so goals or plans I have for the coming year. So here it is: my 2014 Bucket List.
Some of these things will be challenging, but they are doable.
What's your plan for 2014?
