As with most people, I do not make resolutions that I know I’ll never keep. However, I have goals that I intend to achieve by the end of the year so I guess I’ll share them.. this being a kind of personal-mixed-with-business kind of blog!
1. To Graduate
Nothing will give me greater pride than to hear my name being called out as I am awarded my master’s degree sometime in June this year. Plus I need my thesis to be of publishable quality, getting published in a business or academic journal will be very rewarding!
I love learning and I’m betting this will not be my last degree.
2. Give Birth Naturally Without Screaming
So I’m due anytime between March 18th and April 13th. So around 30th March I’m expecting the infamous labour to set in so I can bring forth into the world a beautiful baby boy called Jeremy, as smart and talented as his parents.
I’ll be all calm and will not take any pain medication/epidural. I’ve already bet with a friend that I shan’t be screaming as the doctors say “push..!” like they do in the movies. So who wants to take a bet?
A friend has offered to record the whole thing- not sure which parts will be censored- in the 24 hour format. You know the voice..
“the following takes place between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. ”
3. Turn 25
Turning a quarter a century is a big deal, right? That’s my April goal.. it’s so easy to achieve because well, as long as I’m still breathing I have no choice but to grow older.
I should probably make a 25-things-to-do-before-you-turn-25 list.
Now that I’m in what I’d call ‘stable employment’, I should be able to save somewhat towards my goal of achieving not only financial independence, but also financial freedom. The freedom to buy a jet tomorrow if I wanted!
5. Take Divas4Tech to New Heights of Women Involvement in Technology
Last year we started Divas4Tech, that’s an organization dedicated to improving lives through technology and increasing the participation of women in ‘techpreneurial’ matters. I hope this is the year we achieve some of our goals.
