“Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”

No matter how you feel about the ‘new year, new me’ trend that is taking over social media, there is no denying the energy that a new year brings. It’s hard not to get caught up in the glory of new beginnings and the joy of starting new projects.¬†This year, however, I have some things I need to finish before I can move on to anything else.

I believe that writing down your goals cements them in your mind, thereby making them more likely to be achieved. To that end, here are my goals for 2019.


  • Finish my two WIPs
    • H@ck3d
    • King of Swords
  • Edit the two WIPs when completed
  • Write short story collection for publication on Amazon
  • Write on this blog more often
  • Plan trip for spring break to cover in the travel blog


  • Create videos for students
  • Finish creating Classcraft quests for the rest of the semester
  • Work towards making a more flipped classroom
  • Complete my ECU classes (towards my teaching license) with an A


  • Keto diet (urgh!)
    • Lose weight
    • Try to be more active – let’s face it, exercise isn’t happening
  • Get an handle on laundry (seriously, where does it all come from?)

What are your grand plans for the new year?
