    I completed all my resolutions for 2012, so for 2013 I am going to build upon them.

    In 2013, I resolve to:
    1. Get a kick-ass summer internship
    2. Complete the full introductory yoga series of classes at my gym
    3. Run a 10K
    4. Pack my lunch at least one day per week
    5. Read at least two books per month

    I registered for the Lake Union 10K on August 18. And I'm currently reading Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System--and Themselves.

    I'm on vacation this week, so I've just been cooking and eating at home, but I will be packing starting Monday!

    Based solely on the cooking thread alone, I would happily surrender to a world where you were cooking and making lunch for me every week. I'm saying this in a very non-gay way.

    Courtney you're doing great. Good for you on stepping up to meet your goals. Good thing I have until the end of the year to keep trying!

    Things are moving along on this.

    1 - I've been working on refining different versions of my resume for different positions and drafting cover letters.

    2 - Still need to sign up for the next class series. It starts on January 23.

    3 - I have registered for 3 races to help ramp up for this goal and keep me honest: the March Forth 5K on 3/3, the Beat the Bridge 8K on 5/19, and finally the Lake Union 10K on 8/7.

    4 - I have actually packed my lunch every single day so far this week, and already have things boxed and ready to go in my fridge for Thursday and Friday. Yay.

    5 - I finished two small books this week, but I'm not sure if I should count them because they're not really serious books. I'm still working on Too Big To Fail as my nighttime reading.

    UPDATES:

    I have been working really ridiculously hard on #1. I had a first and second round interview on this past Thursday and Friday, and a first round for a different company on Monday. I've also been networking my butt of and doing a lot of informational interviews with folks at my target companies. I'm hoping this will all pay off soon and I'll be able to check the internship thing off on my list by March.

    I decided I needed to re-prioritize the 6am yoga classes considering that I'm not getting enough sleep. I am going to delay resolution #2 until the internship search is finished and I have more time.

    My first step towards #3 is running a 5K on March 5. I've been working towards this, and got this super awesome GPS/heart rate monitor thing which is fantastic because it gives me a live read as to my pace per mile as I run.

    I have been just barely squeaking by on #4 because things have been so hectic, but I HAVE done it, even though a lot of the lunches I'm packing are just leftovers or something like that not terribly complex. I want to work on using more fresh vegetables instead of having everything in soup or stew form, but I am definitely saving money no matter which way I go, so that's good.

    The book thing that is resolution #5 has been no problem. I have been reading a lot of company-specific books by CEOs and whatnot in preparation for internship interviews.

    5. Way behind on this. I have read 8 books this year so far, which means I am 13 books behind schedule. Woah. Time to do some serious catching up.

    YAY! Just finished my final book (The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg)! I didn't successfully run a 10K, but I did everything else I set out to do. Four out of five is pretty good, so I'll consider that a success. Happy New Year's Eve everybody

    I don't know about more frequently, but I definitely have rocked harder this year. The frequency has probably stayed consistent.

    Do less things that make other people worry about me.

    Still have a ton of fun in the process.

    I'm heading into the second two-hour installment of the Third Reich ​marathon on H2 and wearing a sweater that until very recently belonged to Mrs. Bill Bain. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to be making resolutions when I've clearly reached my full potential.
