Meet the Teacher Monday Linky

Happy Tuesday Friends! Today I am linking up with Trina: The Ordinary to Extraordinary Classroom for her brand-spankin' new Meet the Teacher Monday linky party. I know I'm not linking up on Monday, but if you check out the introductory post, Trina says it's ok if you don't link up on Monday (see, I do know how to follow directions! :o)

So I am supposed to share my vision board: 

I don't make any New Year's resolutions this year, as I never ever follow them...but I suppose I can handle having a vision for 2014 (I know, same-difference, but we'll see). 

1. Where did I win in 2013? Hands-down, my new job! Everyday I am more grateful for this opportunity and so glad that I took the "plunge." I truly could not be happier :o)

2. Where did I lose in 2013? Finances for sure. Loans, loans, loans. I do love my job and I went to a great college, got a wonderful education, and had some amazing experiences...but I am so DONE with paying back my loans. It seems I just never get ahead. 

3. What did I learn? To take chances. Changing jobs was one of the most stressful, nerve-wracking experiences, but I am so glad I did it. 

4. Where do I want to be this time next year? I want to be looking back at some incredible memories from 2014 - hopefully one of those memories will be of running a 5K (I have got to start somewhere). Still loving my job, having a bigger TpT store, and hopefully a little extra "play" money.

Taking chances usually pays off (although sometimes the payoff is a good lesson). I'm glad your new job worked out. Teaching fourth grade is the best!

Awww...thanks for participating. I once ran a 5K. I thought after I ran it I would be so stoked to run many more...no. I am just not a runner. You should make your first 5K a fun one. Try the Color Run, Glow Run...any one of those runs where you have fun and get dirty. I ran a plain FUN RUN in the Texas heat. There was nothing fun about that run.

I love your blog design. When I clicked on the link it didn't work:-(

I can totally relate to taking chances! A fun 5k is definitely the way to begin. Google couch to 5k to find a training plan, pick a fun race, and sign up with some friends. Good luck!

I agree there is never any way to get ahead on student loans! I feel like I have been paying ours off forever!!! Good luck with 2014!!

I am over from the Meet the Teacher linky party. I enjoyed reading about your visions for 2014. You can definitely do a 5k. I am hoping to do a 10k by the end of the year. Best of luck!
