Describe one thing you'd like to achieve by this time next year. Why is this important to you?

I’ve been working on my novel for so long, and I feel so close to the next steps. I’d really like to have a solid final-ish draft by this time next year. And I hope it’s awesome!

By this time next year I really want to be in control of my physical and mental health. I have yet to truly make this a priority for myself and I need to find a way to truly dedicate my energy to my overall well being. Nothing is more important. I can not take care of others unless I take care of myself first.

Crush student teaching, I mean knock it's socks off and become a leader in the classroom despite the fact I'm walking into a building with people who have been together for a semester already. I would love to leave feeling like I made the school I'm at a better place because that would give me a huge shot of confidence going into the summer as well as beginning a job search in the future.
