The Liquid Team’s New Years Resolutions
Wondering what the Liquid Team came up with as our New Years Resolutions for 2014? Here they are!
Maryanne: I didn’t really come up with resolutions, but my roommate and I are going to do one exciting thing off a Bucket List we compiled every weekend for the next three months.
5 of them include: bike the 32-mile roundtrip Gainesville-Hawthorne Trail, get a tattoo, take a weeklong road trip to Key Largo and camp on the beach, spend a few hours every month volunteering, and complete one Pinterest project a month.
Amanda: I’m joining my sister and setting a goal to read 30 books this year. Some of the first few on my list include The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and Why I Write by my all-time favorite author George Orwell. Have you read any of these? What books should I add?
Build a coffee table
Do not buy another book until I finish the 80 I’ve bought and haven’t gotten to yet
Play my trumpet a little every day
Write two short stories
Volunteer at least twice a month
Go white water rafting again
Do a handstand
Get back into the rock gym and land a 5.9 by June
Nate: Come up with a resolution for next year’s resolution.
Hector: My New Years Resolutions are to spend more time with my family, not to sweat the small stuff, and to find true happiness.
Spend time playing more with my kids
Plant a garden (I love gardening and find it therapeutic)
Read more and take time to read for fun
Visit my grandparents more
Start yoga and work on improving flexibility and lessening stress
Kathryn: As a family we have several, but for me personally: I’d like to read more like I used to … not just the news or previewing my daughters’ books, but for me. I want to fall into a book at night, not just the couch.
Kelli: My goal is to create a five-year plan!
Scott: I am going to start a nonprofit incubator geared toward helping residents of East Gainesville start businesses.
