2013-2014 Goals

I am sitting here, handwriting my goals… when I realized I type 75 WPM and have a blog I haven’t updated in 3 months. Why not update my goal list via the interwebs and share with all my accountability subscribers (woah – didn’t know subscribing had a catch huh?).

I have broken my goals down by month – from Dec 2013 to Dec 2014. I have also established Year 2014 Goals. Setting goals is an aim for me to hit a desired result in my life. Some goals are serious and others are serious. What I mean by that is, I am serious about my goals. I’ve written down my goals since I could pick up a pen (just because they weren’t legible doesn’t make them any less important). I feel like I am pretty accomplished by my young age of 24. I also feel like there is a lot more I could accomplish (like… a lot). I do not, however, expect to accomplish every goal I ever write down. There is just something about writing down and visualizing achievement that makes me feel more motivated – and therefore more likely to complete my goals.

Here we go Accountability Subscribers…

My goals for the next 13 months:
December: Trip to Disney

January: CompTIA Certified

February: $3k Stashed (untouchable for emergency fund only)

March: Take German Classes

April: Take Dance Lessons

May: Stay on a strict budget and save for Germany

June: Paint a canvas picture (maybe while drinking wine?)

July: Cut my hair and Donate

August: $6k Stashed (untouchable for emergency fund only)

September: Do something nice for someone that cannot be pointed back to myself

October: Trip to Germany

November: Complete NaNoWriMo 30day Challenge

December: Buy Gallon of Starbucks coffee and hand out to homeless

– Year 2014 Goals –
One year of monthly blogging
Write a short eBook
Get a promotion

Goals are such an important part of my life, and I could easily say, writing down goals has seriously contributed to my happiness level. I plan on writing another blog filled with a more broad life-long bucket list. I found a lot of my inspiration here.

Feeling inspired? Write!

About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin

  1. Ashlee.. I’m not sure how I came across your blog, but we kind of know each other. And I may be able to help with one portion of your list. 🙂

  2. Well, I currently live in Germany for the next 3 years. I have an extra room and that could possibly lengthen your stay by saving you money. 🙂 I’m not sure if you recognize my name or not being as we only met on Facebook and only have a handful of people that we both know.
