Well as the title states, this post is full of randomosity.

Now bring on the linky parties!
The first one up is day 4 of the Counting our Blessings and Looking Ahead party. Today's theme is downtime and Amy from Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons is hosting.
Here are my downtime resolutions for 2013:
1. Read for fun: I used to read sometimes 3 books a week. Once college started that went right out the window. There is so much textbook reading that I never have time to read books I want to read for fun. I vow to make extra time to unwind and read a good book at least once a month.
2. Catch up with friends: I am always "too busy" with school to meet with friends. I need to make time to meet up with friends and re-connect. Ice skating or meeting at a coffee house seems like a perfect start.
3. Turn off the electronics: I am usually connected to some piece of technology from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed. I need to shut off the devices and enjoy the simple things in life like this beautiful snowfall.
Then we have Jen from The Teachers' Cauldron hosting the It's A New Year linky party.
My personal resolution is to make more time for family. Cherish every minute you have with family because you never know when they can be taken from you.
My blogging resolutions are two fold.
The first is to get a custom blog design. I now have my blog name set and I am ready to make it complete with a custom look. There are so many great designers out there it is hard to choose one!
The second resolution is to stick to a weekly posting schedule.
I am thinking something like this:
Shopping Sunday - Sharing my shopping steals of each week
Manic Monday -So I stick to making at least weekly freebies
Storytelling Tuesday - sharing a great read-aloud and activity
Wordless Wednesday - keeping me accountable for pictures
Thankful Thursday - I definitely have so much to be thankful for
Free-For-All Friday - Whatever I feel like sharing each week
CCSSS - Common Core State Standard Saturday - Sharing a Common Core State Standard resource or activity with you all
What do you think?
Sounds like an ambitious, yet much needed plan.
Head on over and link up! I'd love to hear your resolutions!
