Well, it’s about that time! 2013 was a BIG year for me, and I’m hoping that 2014 brings just as much change. I think this is the first time I’ve ever reached a New Year and I am really, really looking forward to the year ahead. Law school is behind me, the Bar exam is behind me, and only new things are to come!

goals 2014

Before we get into 2014 though, let’s take a look back at my goals for 2013:


1. Be more thoughtful with my time. This is something I think I did much better with for a majority of the year, but once September game it just went out the window. I’m awful with my time nowadays since I have way too much of it. This is definitely a goal that will be added on for the upcoming year.

2. Build Strength. Womp womp. Haha, I did work on building some strength this year, but I don’t think I was consistent enough with it to see any real results. Another thing to add to 2014!

3. Continue working on my relationship with God. YES! Haha I got one right! After the Bar exam I finally found a church that I enjoy (mostly because of the young community) and I’ve joined a small group, which I love. I decided to ask to be placed in a group for their bible study so I would be more accountable and have more concrete ways to study God’s word, as well as surround myself with women who are a wonderful, positive influence.

4. Show more appreciation for family and friends. I hope I did this one! I’ve tried to send out more cards, notes and make more phone calls this year than I have in the past. I’ve recently gotten to talking to one of my friends from college much more (miss you merebear!) and I was so blessed to have a whole week in Charleston with my friend, Amy Lee for her wedding. I’m so glad I took that week off from the Bar to spend with her.



Alright, time for 2014!

1. FIND A JOB. Self-explanatory.


2. Be more productive with my time. Sound familiar? Haha we’re trying this one again! I really need to be better about getting up early, working out, and getting out my door and to a coffee shop by 8:30-9:00am. You’d think this would be easy but somehow I manage to dawdle the morning away. NO MORE!

3. Live Intuitively. As I learned through Jamie’s Intuitive Eating program, it’s important to not only eat intuitively, but live intuitively. Listen to your body, as well as to your gut instincts. Be true to yourself, be honest with others, and don’t try so hard to live up to the expectations of others. This can be a hard one for me because I like people to like me, I’m definitely a people pleaser.


4. Work on strength training! Haha another repeat. I’ve decided this year I’m probably going to run fewer miles (less runs per week, but hopefully at least one long run and one speed work) and work on strength more. I have some running plans lined up for Spring, but once we’re past that I think I’m going to sign up for races at the last minute rather than ahead of time.

5. Push myself out of my social comfort zone. I do tend to be fine with meeting new people and attending events alone (hello skeeball!) but I spend far too many nights at home alone because I’m comfortable with that. This year I’ll not only have my small group, but I’m also joining the Junior League of Chicago, which I’m really looking forward to. Beyond that – just more social events and meeting up with friends!
