50 Adjectives: Focused

First off, to be honest, I'm not sure that focused is even an adjective. But it is in my book because I am a focused person! What do you think, adjective or verb? Either way, it describes me.


noun- a central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity.

verb- to concentrate.

 When I have my mind set on something, I normally zone in on it and until it is accomplished, I have all my focus on it. I am a very determined and self-motivating person when it comes to my dreams, goals, and things I want. Here is a list of things I am focused on now.

1. My Life- That is an obvious answer. My life is important to me. The way I carry myself, the things I achieve, the person I want to be are all important factors to me.

2. School- I am 100% committed to school. I love learning, and I can not wait to teach what I have learned to my future students. Honestly, I love school so much that I would be willing to be a full-time student for the rest of my life.

3. My Family's Future- I constantly think about what our future holds. For me, I want the best and will not settle. When I say I want the best, I mean I want to have what I can have, what is controllable. For example, I wanted a certain amount of money in a separate savings account for our children. That is what I am talking about. Not having the most expensive car or the biggest house, or whatever else people want these days. I just want a successful life and a secure future for my family. 

4. Our Finances- I seriously zone in on our finances like a hawk. I put money in to savings every month. I budget like a mad woman. I make it work. I want to make it work. Why? For our future.

5. My Faith- My faith is very important to me. It's my foundation of life. It is exactly what has made me who I am today, and without it I am nothing.

6. My Health- Of course, we all knew I was going to put this one. There are so many health issues that run in my family, so it is important to me that I take care of myself the best way I can.

7. Fitness- This kind of goes with health, but I have more goals than just eating healthy. I want to be fit. I want to be that person that can still function at 50 and 60.

8. Lists- I am a nerd about lists. I always have to be organized. I have lists for our money budgets. I have lists for our travels. I make a gazillion grocery lists because I shop at 2, sometimes 3, different places a week. I have lists for things that need to get done around the house. I have my to-do lists when I have errands to run. I have lists for things I need to bring with me to appointments. I have a wish list of clothes, panties, bras, workout accessories, Wii games, books, traveling accessories, etc. I love my lists! 

9. Traveling- I definitely want to be able to travel as much as possible throughout my whole life. Not just while I am here in England, but for forever. I never want it to end. I have a lists of places I want to see and during which time frames. Have I mentioned that Mr. Man got approved for us to go to Ireland over the Thanksgiving break?! I started planning that already! 

10. Future Deployments- I constantly think about when Mr. Man will deploy again. Not because I dread it or anything of that matter. It is mostly because I know it is going to happen, and I try to plan around it if I can figure out about when he will leave. Right now, I am estimating he will leave next August for 6 months.  So with wanting to travel and such, I try to plan around that time-frame and make it work. However, this is the Air Force, he can leave at any moment, for any time, and I am well aware of that, too.

11. Love- Of course, I focus on love. Love in my marriage. Love between my family and friends. Loving and not hating. I'm happy when I love, so loving is a big part of my life. 

12. Friendships- I definitely love my friends, and I absolutely focus some time to hang with them. I want to be there for them just like they are there for me. I need my girl time. I need my fun girls nights. I need my girl talk. And I need the extra support. Who doesn't? I love my friends! They totally rock! I also love the new blog friends I have recently met. I never realized how big this blog world was and who I could meet through it all. I have definitely built some lasting friendships through this, and I hope to one day be able to hang out with you guys or cross paths at some point in our lives. That would be way cool!


And I am focused on my blog! DUH! 




  1. I love these! I would definitely say its an adjective!

  2. You're very focused indeed! I wouldn't mind someone as focused as you focusing on my finances - I am quite... unfocused on them!
