of 2017.

I have high hopes and big dreams (as always) for this coming year.

I thought I would put them out into the ether.

I want to travel more, if possible, and start exploring places that don't provide the modern comforts that I'm so used to. I'm talking about backpacking South America, Southeast Asia, camping through Canada and the States. I get back to California in July and I would like to start as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I have trips to Europe planned, and camping trips throughout Israel on my bucket list. It is time I started to make moves.

I will finish my fellowship, my career tracks, and keep up with this blog. I will. I have written it down here and so it will be.

I want to be a monster at the gym. This is not a New Years resolution, this is a hope I have had for a long time. I have been taking baby steps the past year, going to the gym a few times a week and lifting my wimpy sets of weights. I want to kick butt. I want to be a gym rat, and I am well on my way already.

I hope to create lasting friendships, this year. I have had difficulty holding on to friendships with people, I've been that way my whole life. Because of anxiety, because of my character, because of whatever. That's the way it's always been. I either choose the bad ones or I choose those that just don't fit.

This is the year of standards. Quality over quantity.

I'm also taking out the trash, doing some deep-cleaning within myself.

I want to be happy. I am going to do the things that make me happy.

I hope that career success will come after. A year to work on myself, both physically and mentally, is a nice enough goal, I think.

2018 will be the year of career pursuits and climbing ladders. 2017 is the year of tough, sturdy, lasting foundations.

I look forward to the challenge.
