Top 10 Desires for 2013

At our house, we have a scrapbook resolution tradition that we do on New Years Eve. We make a poster of what we want for the upcoming year. I love this tradition. Here’s my poster. See if you can decipher some of my desires for 2013. I’ll tell you a few of them.


This year, I will be turning 24 and I know that God is going to show out in a mighty way. I have a few things that I desire to accomplish before the year is over. Note I didn’t mention resolutions. For some reason, my mind, body, and soul go out of their way to spite my resolutions so I’m going to call them desires instead.

1. Get into an Out-of-State Graduate program

2. Get more organized

3. Establish my style which I call “Professoriate”

– Professoriate style is quirky, eclectic, and includes tortoise-shell glasses, blazers, cardigans, and loafers.

7. Learn to do more things with my hands (sew w/ a machine, build, design…)

8. Sky dive for my 24th birthday (I won’t be stopped this year!)

9. Be on stage more (The Voice?)



On a side note, for the sake of my readers and instagram followers I hope I can find an alternative to those sophomoric mirror picture. I hope someone loves me enough to start taking them for me ;)
