Year of 2014 ~ Goal Review

Horse-Related Goals
  • Maintain Lady at a healthy weight.  Yes!  We had a few weeks over the summer when I slacked off and she put on a few more pounds, but we did great. She looks fantastabulous (totally my word now).
  • Keep horse health records better.  I still didn't do as well as I wanted to, but definitely better. This blog also helped me keep track of a lot of things.
  • Get a new saddle. Since we are on our third of the year, I think this one is definitely done.
  • Film regularly 1-2x per month.  
  • Attend/Audit 1-2 clinics. Parelli event happened. That was the only thing I actually went to, but I spent more time than usual in my personal library.
  • Go to watch horse shows.  I went to the horse races! It is a huge pain to find horse shows nearby (within 2-3 hours) but I did watch several live online.
  • Learn USDF Intro Tests.  Test A - yes. Test B - yes, but not memorized. Test C didn't happen, but our canter is getting so much better now :)

Personal Goals
  • Maintain a blog posting schedule.  Yup, for most of the year anyways. I wrote nearly every week this year!
  • Read more books. I read a LOT of books this year  o.O
  • Publish my novel.
  • Get published in a magazine.  Just didn't pursue this one like I should have.
  • Win Camp NanoWrimo.  In both April and July!
  • Complete the Hanon exercise book (piano).  
  • Create a decent pianist's repertoire.  I wouldn't say this is as good as I hoped, but it happened.
  • Be ready for my college music audition in 2015.
  • Play the violin again.
  • Graduate from Paris Junior College.
  • Get my purple belt in taekwondo.
  • Get along better with my big sister.
