Goals for 2010

I’ve been seeing a lot of goal setting going on in the blogiverse so I thought I should probably think about it myself.  Here are a few I’m going to get started with:

  • Write-Finish the novel that I frantically beat on during the month of November.  I’ve also got some ideas for children’s books that I really want to work on. 
  • Be more “Artsy”-(because we aren’t calling it crafty since “crafters” sorta freak me out).  I want to knit things that intimidate me, make things I always said I could make but never tried to figure it out, Pick up my poor neglected camera again, learn to sew, etc etc etc… and sell it all at craft “art” shows and on Etsy.
  • Cook-I’ve been inspired by the newest addition to my cookbook collection (thanks Dustin!) and I refuse to let it get dusty like the rest of them!
  • Be hospitable-which goes along with the cooking I think. Vegan brunch anyone? Game night?
  • Explore-I bought this book, Daytrips from Orlando, months and months ago and still haven’t done anything. There’s a cool walking tour of Downtown O-Town; Again, any takers?
  • Read-I was exceedingly disappointed with myself when, sorting through my books, I realized that I have, at minimum, 40 books I’ve never read.  This is unacceptable.  So, I’ve challenged myself to not buy any books until this “Unread” shelf is empty… this doesn’t mean that I can’t receive gifts… I’m just saying…

  1. This is a great idea! About 4 years ago I signed up to the 43things website. I wrote a bunch of goals on there and totally forgot about it. Funnily enough I only completed 3 of them. Skydive, which i had actually done at the time but was worth mentioning. White Water Rafting in Colorado Rockies – did this. The last one was Take a self portrait everyday for 365 days. I was on day 67 when i put that in there. Also done. 🙂

    I think the most important thing is to have the list nearby or on a cork board or something. I’ve gotten a drive to do more of these things plus a whole lot more.

    Good Luck with your List! Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit!! ~Paulie

    1. Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit!!

      I’ve got to add, “Go back to Ireland” to my list! Missing it a lot today…
      Thanks for the tip on 43things. This list is getting longer but I’ve made a bit of progress. I cook four things now! (And they don’t come out of boxes or involve the microwave 🙂

      Hope all is well with you, Beannachd Dia dhuit!

    1. You are not too late! Thanks for reminding me of my goals! I’ve got to get a calendar going and you’ll be on my list!

  2. Our Goals List! This is where it all started, wasn’t it? of course we would have to discount NANO for that to be true, but I like the way you think. I’ll keep you accountable love 🙂
