2011...looking forward.

So, what do I want from this next year?

  • To continue to grow in my faith, and become more involved in the church. 
  • To continue in recovery, with no major relapses when I start university in September
  • To go to 3 different countries.
  • To make the transition from my home to uni easy and learn to cook so I actually have something to eat while there!
  • To find a job I like for the remains of my gap year.
  • To read LOTS of books. 
  • To continue to blog.
This is a much better list from last year, which was, "Get through the year." 


1.What books should I read in 2011?
2. What films should I try and see in 2011?

These all sound really good Battle. I don't have an actual list but I do think 2011 is going to be an awesome year. I can feel it in my bones. I hope it is for you too.
