probably since it's february i should write down my goals for the year. they've been rolling around in my head for a month but i keep forgetting to write them down. i thought about things i wanted to get better at or do differently and i realized that i'm a pretty safe person. i'm open-minded and i like to try new things, but only if there's no chance i'll fail. i don't take a lot of risks or challenge myself. i'd like to change that. here's what i'm working on in 2011:
try yoga for more than one week
run. on a regular basis. big goal: run in the hood-to-coast this summer. yikes!
travel somewhere i've never been by myself. or with someone if anyone would like to volunteer.
interview for teaching jobs. terrifying.
swim. with all that fancy breathe to the side stuff.
bake something involving yeast, kneading and rising.
talk to and make something happen with that guy. shoot. i wrote it; now i have to do it.
read the books that are on my bookshelf that i've been avoiding. scarlet letter, wuthering heights? i'm looking at you.
sew those skirts that i bought the fabric for a year ago. i won't sew my thumb, i won't sew my thumb.
work on my creative cooking skills. once you don't eat meat, cooking great meals gets a little bit harder.
find a place i love and get used to the idea of moving there.
i think that's good for one year. i'll keep you posted on how all of this is going.
