Good bye 2008…Hello 2009

by Meghann on December 31, 2008

2008 has been a great year. I have been through soo much, both good and bad. I wouldn’t change any of it for a second. I’ve learned more about myself in the past 12 months then I knew in any of the 23 years before it. Most importantly I have learned to live life one day at a time and never take any of it for granted. 🙂

In 2008…..

I made a resolution to get my butt into shape and discovered my love for running and healthy eating…

 

I celebrated turning 23 in the Georgia Mountains with my wonderful family…

I visited Ireland with my Second Family who welcomed me with open arms…

I witnessed my little sister turn 21 and celebrated with her at Disney…

I celebrated Abbie turning 1…

I vacationed on the beach…

I hiked in the Great Smoky Mountains…

I had my heart broken…

I left my first real job and started a new adventure in a new city…

I moved into my first apartment all by myself…

I reconnected with old friends…

I made some new friends…

I started this blog…

I wore a bikini on Halloween

I voted for the next president and watched history in the making

I reunited with College friends

I ran a Half Marathon in 2:08:16 with my parents waiting for me at the finish line…

 

Most importantly I discovered myself this past year and learned to live life for me.

With all the wonderful things I have experience in 2008, I am even more excited to see what 2009 will bring me. I have so many goals I would like to achieve now in both my personal and business life.

With all of that being said here are the goals I have narrowed down for myself in 2009:

  • Go on Dates – Hell I would even be happy with talking to just talking with a guy. I had my heart broken this past year, but I believe its time to move on. I’m enjoying being single, but a free meal every once in a while would not hurt either. 😉
  • Run a Full Marathon – This is a long term goal I am hoping to accomplish in the Fall. 
  • Compete in a Triathlon – I am registered to run one in March!
  • Save Money – I think this is a given for any list of goals.
  • Take on more responsibility at my Job
  • Spend less time on the computer
  • Maintain weight loss
  • Eat less refined sugars
  • Continue to discover myself and push my limits

They’re simple general goals that I hope will guide me through the next year.

Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you have a safe and healthy start to 2009! I will be bringing in the New Year with some friends downtown, the next time I will be blogging it will officially be 2009!!!!

Mission Accomplished

December 31, 2008

I got some new headphones! I have had comments in the past from readers wanting headphone recommendations and I have to say these are my favorite. That’s right, I bought the same pair as before only this time I decided to change it up a little bit and get pink. They are reasonably priced and more »

It Was Nice Knowing You Headphones

December 31, 2008

I present you, the headphones of an avid runner… They are sweaty, discolored and now broken. 🙁 During my run this morning my headphones decided it was time to bite the dust. The headphones did have a good run, they lived a healthy 6 month life and kept me distracted during multiple races, vacations and more »

December 30, 2008

Let me start off by saying I know I am not in any shape way or form an expert on pictures. I lack the lighting and resources to truly capture anything phenomenal. With that being said this is just a tutorial of what I have seen other bloggers capture and what keeps bringing me back. more »

American Teen… At least I was 4 years ago….

December 30, 2008

Last night I watch a great documentary film called American Teen. The movie follows 5 high school students over the course of their senior year. If you loved Laguna Beach or The Hills then go rent this movie. The movie is actually better then those shows due to the fact it takes place in middle more »
