2010: For The Win (FTW)

Well, 2010 is here. 2009 is officially over, and I'm really happy about it.  A lot of people have been talking shit about 2009 on Twitter (for whatever reason), but I'm here to rep it. 2009 was a really hard year for me, and I went through a lot of emotional downs; but 2009 also brought me a lot of happiness, and I have no regrets, and I will always remember it as the year I moved to New York and learned a lot about myself. That said, I am very ready to put it behind me and move on to 2010, looking nowhere but forward.

The other day on the plane home from Alabama, I wrote a list of things I hope to accomplish in 2010. It ended up being 10 things, which gives it a nice ring: Top 10 in 0-10, or something. Here is the unedited list, in order.

1. To see my play produced.
2. To write an episode of a TV show and see it filmed
3. To make some money on my blog, somehow
4. To see my blog plugged in some major or semi-major news/blog outlet
5. To blog in some official capacity for another site
6. To find someone to love
7. To be and stay healthy
8. To travel outside the country
9. To build new friendships and foster the ones I have
10. To better my own version of the world through volunteering or helping people however I can

I think most of these are quite reasonable, and in my control. Some others will require a bit of divine intervention, or destiny, or fate, or what-have-you. I have lots of faith, and still foster the belief that everything happens for a reason and the universe operates toward a general greater good.

So, time to wake up. Time to go. Let's do this.

  1. Your post is the 1st one I started the New Year off reading. One that really hit home several times. Making me realize that be it divine intervention, destiny, or fate I am here due to it's existence.

    Especially since I awoke seconds before the alarm went off thinking those exact words. "Time to wake up. Time to go. Let's do this."

    Could I have heard you typing? did the rare occurence of the moon have some effect since I am in the exact opposite position then you? Meaning I went from Apples to Blackberries.

    Not quite sure but whatever it is or is not, Happy 2010, thanks for the great post, keep up the blogging and here's to accomplishing that list. (raising my morning coffee)

    P.S. Next time you eat a piece of pizza, think of me. Hopefully it will stop my cravings! ;)

  3. It's a great list. Just a hunch, but number 10 could lead you to at least one (and possible more) of the others!

  9. Very nice blog and good resolutions to work towards! I drove myself out to San Diego (from Boston area) 2 years ago and unfortunately drove myself all the way back home 6 months later. Reading your blog will inspire me to get myself back out there, where I belong!

  13. Hi there, I really like your blog, but I have a huuuuge favor. I have a blog about teen stuff, all sorts of things, and I badly need readers. I'd absolutely love it if you were to look at it and possibly have others look too. http://teenscene-tts.blogspot.com
