Before I'm 30...

When I was younger my mom made us say our goals for the year. We would do it twice a year. Once would be the night before our first day of school and then again on New Years. Mine were always the same-"Make better grades, study more, keep my room clean, say 'yes ma'am'". Can you guess how many I kept?! Yeah I don't remember but doubtful I kept every one of them.

Over the last five years I have attempted to make a list of yearly goals but always got distracted or never really thought I could accomplish any of them. Where is my confidence right?! I am kind of known for starting something and then never finishing it-true story. It could be with anything. Last October that all changed when I vowed to get Drake Men launched by the Summer of 2012. June 22 it launched and I was so excited.

From then on I have tried to muster up the courage to start another 'Goal list'. This time I am not doing it based yearly. Simply I would like to accomplish all these things by the time I'm 30. By putting this up on my site I am hoping that it will be a daily reminder to get these things done. I am counting on you guys to keep me in check. If it has been a long time since one has been crossed off-send me an email and say 'WTF Shannon...what are you doing over there?'

  1. My dear sweet Shannon - it is mom here. You will be glad to know when you were young, you kept most of the goals you set for yourself. So glad to see you are continuing with your goal setting and have set some very aggressive ones. Remember to continue adding to your goals as some are crossed off; you will never become complacent, always aspiring to be better. All of my love, your biggest fan, your devoted Mom

    P.S. spree, hum...sounds good!!! :-)
