Hello 2012!

2011 has come and gone and 2012 is now upon us. This year proves to be what could possibly be a year of major changes to my life. Of course I have the usual goals: eat better, exercise more, save more money, etc. But I my list goes a bit further into detail than that:

*Graduate from college with my masters in Media Arts*

Chauncey and I both graduated in 2008 with our Bachelor degrees and while thankfully Chauncey was able to secure a full-time position at the place he already worked, I was one of the many college students stuck with a crappy job market and no prospects. After months of searching with no luck we both enrolled in the graduate program. Now we are one semester away from graduating with masters degrees and hopefully better job prospects (at least for myself). I have more about this that I want to tell you guys but for now it'll have to wait.

*Go on my first Disney Cruise*

We're booked on the Disney Dream this coming fall for a 4 night cruise with a stop in Nassau and Castaway Cay (Disney's private island for those who don't know). I've been on one cruise before (Carnival, we went to Grand Cayman and Cozumel) and I loved it. Chauncey has never been and I think Disney's cruise ship will be a good introduction to cruising. But first we have to get our passports. I got mine several years ago but have to apply for a whole new one since mine is too old to just do an update with my married name and Chauncey has never had one.

*Pay off DEBT*

Chauncey and I are determined to start paying off our outstanding debt, thankfully we have a solid plan and if we stick to it we can start saving more for things we need to purchase in the future.

*Ramp up creating Youtube content*

Our Vlog channel, CnRWannabes, Chauncey's channel and my channel are thankfully getting pretty steady traffic, but we are all going to try and create and upload even more content this upcoming year. I love doing video work, but unfortunately I'm only able to film and upload so often due to time and technology constraints. Hopefully I can find a way to work around those blockades and upload even more videos in 2012!

Of course right now finishing school is my top priority but I'm looking forward to what else 2012 has in store of us and of course I'll be sharing with you right here on and my Youtube channel.
