I, personally, do not make any.
However, I have 4 classes left to get my BS and i do plan on doing that this year. Wish me luck...I'm such a procrastinator!!

I'm not big on setting an exact resolution either. It's a lot of pressure! I know I'm such a whimp! But I've joined a 365 photo project. It's where you have to take a picture a day. It will be good for me to strech my creativity! It's only day three, but I've made it so far! :0) Otherwise, I'm going to work on staying positive. This first 1/2 of the year may be very challenging for me, and I don't want to give in to the negativity around me!!!! And also to just be who I want to be. No playing nice nice for everyone!

that photo project sounds fun! I've always been interested in photography myself but won't let myself persue it until I finish school...LOL...so that is another driving factor. Right now I am on a wait-list for one class that starts on the 17th...if I can't get in that one, I'll take a different one that starts in Feb. I'm really hoping to do both. I would like to finish by the end of summer (2 classes in spring and 2 in summer). If I get in one that starts early, my classes will only overlap 2 weeks....since they are all 8 week courses instead of 16 I can't really take 2 at the same time...just too demanding.
Thats a great thing to to not give into negativity!! BE STRONG girl!!!

those shorter classes are way more demanding. My friends neice is going to photography school like this, but she's doing really well! I'm glad you've got it all checked out!
And thanks - I'm really going to work on having as little negativity in my life as possible. By t he end of the year, I'm thinking I will feel good about this. I've learned how draining negativity can be on a person now and I'm' good. :0)

Thanks Karen. I'm sure I will be taking you up on your offer. Gma is putting her house on the market this month and when she comes to live with me, I will have a hard time escaping her negativity!! I will need all the help I can get!!!

That's a great idea! I will start doing that now so that I'm all ready for the big move. I just wish Gma could see beyound herself. She just seems really selfish to me. She's gotta know that SD10 will have a really hard time when she moves away. Gma is really the only Mom SD10 has known. So instead of getting her ready for this transition, Gma does what she wants to. SD10 is already starting to cry about Gma moving away. DH and I have quietly been getting SD10 to spend a bit less time at Gma's house. We invite her up to our house (which she doesn't take us up on it very much) so that SD10 can still she her as much as she wants, but this way, SD10 is still at her own home and in her environment instead of Gmas. DH and I just think this will help. I just still get surprised at how negative she can get. Our church (where Gma is an elder) is working on selling one of our properties so we had to have all of the members vote. Pastor was really nervous about this, so Gma picked up on that. The vote went through really and only one person voted "no". Gma couldn't stop complaining about this one bad vote. She does this on a lot of things. She gets stuck on the bad and can't see the good. I'm really greatful that I don't have this issue. I can't imagine this being an easy way to live.
