Ten on Tuesday

Filed under: blogging,meme,reflections — by Monica @ 4:30 pm

It’s Ten on Tuesday time!

10 Things You Want to do in 2009 :

  1. Save & invest more of my money. I will contribute monthly to my RRSP instead of yearly. Continue with m CSB. And open up another investment account. I know I am lucky to live at home, so I’m milkin’ it while I can!
  2. Work as much overtime as I can when it is offered, especially in the summertime
  3. Save up my PTO (paid-time-off days) for a nice trip next winter
  4. Stop being such a lazy bum, stop procrastinating, and become more active (this will prove more difficult for me considering I do work a sedentary job)
  5. Get to the beach more often this summer; work on a good tan
  6. Continue with my reading list for 2009
  7. Volunteer more than I do; give back to the community
  8. Redesign and organize my bedroom – And I mean new paint and that whole shee-bang! And new dressers. The ones I have now are hand me downs from my mother, pretty much antiques (of no value). They’re great, of course, especially considering how frugal I can be… until they fall apart. And I have drawers full of random crap (maybe that’s why they’re broken!) But I don’t even go into them, I don’t know what’s in there! There’s no reason for this and should be completely cleaned out. I need to think minimalist.
  9. Learn to build on the friendships I already have with my girlfriends and also, strike up conversations with strangers, (possible new friendships).
  10. I know there’s something else I want to do this year! Oh yea, well I’ve been looking at crafts online! They’re this Big Ass Book of Crafts book I want to get. Oh and photography as well – as that it one of my New Years Resolutions, to take more pictures. 

Now I just have to find the time for all this. Each and every one listed are realistic and attainable so I know I can do it! And it’s over the span of one year! Hell yea! That’s nothing! Thanks for a motivational list Yano!


  1. I want to go somewhere warm next winter! LOL

    Happy Tuesday!
