To Do in Two Thousand and Ten

My New Year’s Resolutions are kind of private this year. Accountability is important for any major goals, and I’m usually not shy about sharing my various rambling hopes and dreams with the internet, but this year, I just feel like I need to do it on my own.

But I still have some things I’d like to get done. 1o things. Last year I had a similar list. I failed at 1 and 6. I did 2 and 10 for a short spell. I made significant progress toward 3, 5, and a very valiant attempt at 4. I inched toward 9. I had resounding success with 7 and 8.

I like the idea of simple, check-list type goals for a year. I think they help channel my urge to give myself 50 resolutions every January.

But for real, I have five.

Don’t worry, you aren’t missing much. They are extremely boring.

To Do in 2k10

1. Obtain a sourdough starter for bread-bakin’.

2. Visit NYC with Lance.

3. Send holiday and birthday cards to all!

4. Buy some kind of bento box-style , lunchbox  like this one.

5. Buy a pair of running shoes that my feet love…

6. …. and then put them to use once the weather gets nice.

7. Have 3k stashed in the savings account. Again.

8. Pay for my summer classes without taking out additional loans.

9. Buy into my local CSA farmshare (if they still have slots when I get my refund check!)

10. Improve attitude. Get up! Do stuff! Take advantage of your perfectly good legs and go! Do now, worry later!
