Well, Happy New Year!
I’m certainly hoping that whole myth about whatever you are doing at the stroke of midnight being an indicator for the rest of the year isn’t true, because I was asleep when the clocks chimes/bells tolled, or whatever.
On second thought, considering that I probably still have a lack of sleep to make up for from college (and that summer I spent in Italy) maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad thing so spend a bit of time in 2008 in slumber.
But seriously, I love the idea of a new year. A clean slate. And my favorite thing, a blank day planner. I’m one of those people who refuses to give in to the more technological planner/calendar systems like Blackberrys or whatever. I prefer my old standby–a Franklin Covey planner.
I’ve been a planner girl for years. I love to make my daily to do list (and yes, I sometimes even do this on weekends and vacations, and I make no excuses for this habit because without it, I doubt I’d ever get anything done). I love to write down birthdays, anniversaries, meetings, and such in my planner.
And I hate to reveal this particular idiosyncrasy, but I also like to write down what outfit I wear each day. I’ve done this since high school. That’s right. I could go back in my planners (which I keep) and tell you what I was wearing on this day in 1994. I don’t do this so much now that I work from home. And I know it’s strange, but it helps me to make sure I’m not just wearing the same thing over and over! 🙂
Anyway, I have high hopes for the year that is 2008. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me.
