New Year's Resolutions 2012: April Update

New Year's Resolutions: April Update

1. Get married.
This is a constant work in progress, I swear.  The date is set, the chapel's reserved, the pre-wedding seminar is complete, and my dress is ordered.  I've picked the vendor that I want to order the cake topper from.

I'm getting nervous about the dress, actually.  I ordered right at the end of February, and supposedly Shades of Pale takes about six weeks to finish the dress.  But when I emailed them at the beginning of this month, they said they were about "three weeks from completion" which is a little late.  Add in shipping time and I'm worried the dress just might not make it in time.  So I ordered a backup dress from David's Bridal, just to be sure.  It was only $199 (marked down from $699, I think), so if it turns out I don't need it (and I'm sure I won't) I can just turn around and sell the DB dress on eBay or on a used dress site and get most of my money back.

But obviously there are still a ton of things left to do: finalize dinner menu, photograph location arrangements, flowers, hair, make-up, Sean's suit...

2. Move out from my parents' house.
No updates on this, but I guess I should start putting stuff in boxes or something.

3. Get a 4.0.
So not happening this semester.  I think I'm behind in just about every class.  Hopefully I can get caught up with some intensive study sessions, but I don't know...the work load just keeps coming!

4. Graduate from SJSU.
Still haven't done anything official with this, but I'm on track to graduate next semester at least.

5. Complete at least one internship, preferably two.
Egyptian Museum.  I reckon I'm about halfway through - I've got to complete 240 hours so I should be finishing up right around the time I get married at the end of May.

6. Create an awesome work of art.
Yeah. That hasn't happened.

7. Set up – and stick with – a fitness routine.

8. Eliminate the backlog of “to be posted” blog entries.
Explanation of this one: So I have a day planner. Every day I scribble out what I did or topics I want to write about. At some point during the day, I try to get on the computer so that I can write it up as a daily blog entry. Unfortunately, I often get busy and don't get around to writing up that particular day's topic. I've now developed quite a backlog of entries I intend to write, and this year I want to get around to doing it. I know that no one is going to read the backlogged entries, but I think it's important to do just for my own memories' sake.

I currently have 96 entries backlogged.  Hopefully by next month I'll have made that number go down instead of continuing to increase.

9. Eliminate my backlog of books for review.

10. Do one thing completely new.
