insert title [here]

for some reason I keep wanting to say "riddle me this."
I have no idea why... I also have nothing to say afterward.
really strange I know! I think it's stress related or something.
another month has passed and we are here again...
time for me to explain myself and pretend to be all motivated.
I have honestly SUCKED at this list... let's take a look.

here's what I've done:

  1. New York City for New Years. it was a lot of fun and I am really glad that this was on my list.  I'm not sure I will do it again... but it was definitely worth the one time!
  2. run a 5k in under 45 minutes.  uh, it was 44 minutes... still counts but I am looking to improve it.
  3. be super shallow and grow my hair out. working on it. they barista at Starbucks just mentioned to me how long it is getting... a compliment and a low blow all at the same time.
  4. pay off my credit card debt. this one was hard and I am glad it is finished! now if only I could win the lotto to finish off all of these loans...
  5. blog consistently. this is going fairly well, I know for a lot of people they blog way more in the winter than the do in the summer. I am just not like that. it is cold out and all I want to do is be lazy.. I don't want to think or type. so bring on the warm weather!!
  6. work on having a more positive out look. of course some things that I put on my list are a process and this is one of them. but I think the process is underway and I am doing a fairly decent job.

here's what I need to do:

  1. get my ass to California
  2. visit 5 more states to achieve visiting 20/50 
  3. finish my portfolio
  4. be accepted into my Masters program - which for the record I am one step closer!
  5. lose 40 more pounds.  I joined a dietbet [] so I will be nearly 10lbs closer next time I update!
  6. pay off at least one student loan
  7. work on the house... sigh.
  8. work on my photography [warm weather please!!]
  9. stop swearing.  I already swear a lot less... this has been quite a challenge!
  10. EARN 500 followers on this here blog
  11. find a job that I enjoy
  12. go sky diving
  13. start a 401K
  14. do something helpful or kind of someone with no recognition. I tried.. but they wouldn't accept. long story.
  15. donate plasma
  16. read and finish 4.5 more books
  17. start and complete a scrapbook [top secret]
  18. have my fortune read
so really... if you look back, 
I have done one thing since last time.
I am a sad unmotivated individual.. sighhhhhhh 
to change this I have decided to pick a few,
break the list down a little.
so, by April 13th I vow to have:

finished 1.5 books
lost 7-10lbs, and
finished my portfolio

that seems like a pretty good amount to tackle in a month.

  1. I probably couldn't run a 5 K at all lol

    IF there was a Starbucks near my house they would probably know me too. Sadly I live in the middle of nowhere and driving half an hour to get coffee every morning isn't going to happen =(

    I think it's good you narrowed your goals down. It'll be much easier that way! I should try it...but I'm lazy =)

  2. I'd also like to work more on my photography!

    Hope you have a wonderful day :)

  3. I think everyone should do NYE in Times Square at least once in their lives. (and I really need to take my own advice...)

    I paid off my credit card debt last month myself. Whoohoo! *highfives!*

  4. Wow! Great going on your list. I'm sure you'll accomplish everything you want to, if you work hard enough. I have a list too, and here's a confession: sometimes if I do something cool that I never expected to do, I add it to my list AFTER it's done. haha!
