My Preppy Resolutions

So here we are over two weeks into the New Year and I'm finally posting my resolutions! Phew... luckily being early is not one of them :)

My Preppy Resolutions 2010

1. Keep going to church - you started a great habit of going to church regularly and you're spiritual life is growing - keep, keep, keep it up :)


2. Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. - It's an easy way to eat better, and since I love veggies and fruit it shouldn't be too hard with a little advance planning!



3. Stick to your Budget. I'm using the free web service mint.com, and the graphics make my budget look fun. Once you get everything entered it really is easy to keep it up! Trust me... drop by mint.com, and in case you don't trust me read the review of Mint.com on financial magazine Kiplinger's website.


4. Send more letters just because! I love to write a quick note and drop it in the mail, it's fun to send, fun to receive and it always leaves me feeling like I've accomplished something extraordinary! So many things in life are complicated, so start doing this easy thing to add joy to your life and the live's of others.




5. Take one mini (or longer if possible) vacation before med school. Having spent the last four years as an active member of the corporate work force where vacation time is miniscule and oooohhh so precious, I realize that the next four years of my life will be the last four years that I will ever get a "summer vacation," in college I spent all of my out of school time working - even of Christmas break... Hopefully, I can avoid doing this in medical school. I know I'm really going to need to let off some steam after the rigors of med school!

So there they are! 

What does the New Year hold for you?

2010 holds for me:


Working my last 6 months ever in corporate America (so long wonderful offices in skyscrapers, hello hospital wards). I aim to enjoy getting dressed for corporate America. To soak in every ounce of the view from my skyscraper window as long as possible! (Any guesses as to which building is mine?)

Moving to the San Francisco Bay Area.... from Wyoming, to Arkansas, to New York, to Florida, to Texas, I have had the opportunity to live in wonderful cities all over America. I'm tickled pink to add the Bay Area to the list!




Starting Medical School and Finishing my first semester of medical school. I have spent the past 13 years of my life working toward this goal, and now that it's nearly begun... well, I'm just giddy with anticipation, and nervousness! Here's to making the most of medical school, and hoping I find a great group of study partners and friends!

Happy 2010 Everyone!
