Hello again. Now that 2010 is coming to a close, it is time to look ahead to 2011. I have already reflected back on what I set out to accomplish during this year, and now I need to think about what I want to spend 2011 doing. I've got a very small, more modest list so far. Maybe I'll come up with a longer list later on today after I post this entry, so here goes.
1. Improve my penmanship.
This might sound like a bizarre sort of thing to do or work on, but believe me, my handwriting is atrocious. At my job, sometimes I need to write a few things down for a co-worker or someone else, and when I look at the garbage that I am writing, I sort of laugh about how bad it is. It is something that I should probably develop, so it is something I am going to try to improve on.
2. Play Chess.
A long time ago I bought a book about how to play chess, and I never read it (surprise, since I hate to read). But now, I want to play some chess. It just seems like something I can learn and take up as a hobby, and with a few places to play online, it should not be that hard to find people to play against.
3. Watch more movies.
I have not seen any movies. Well, I have not seen very many movies. If it is not a comedy, especially an immature goofy comedy, I most likely have not seen it. I don't have a list in front of me or anything, but feel free to email me or post comments or tweet at me movies that I need to see. Odds are, I have not seen them. I will keep a list of movies that I see and post them throughout the year.
That's all I've got. Not very ambitious, I guess, but after failing so many times last year, I needed to pare it down to a doable amount. I did not put any sort of weight to reach or anything because I feel that I have basically plateaued at 172. If I get below 170, so be it. I am not going to sweat it any more. One thing new that I did was sign up for The Daily Mile website, which will be kind of cool to keep track of throughout the year as I work from Half Marathon to Half Marathon. I did already sign up for the Hospital Hill Half Marathon, and we're only about a year away until I run my first full marathon at Disney in January of 2012. Hope everyone has a great New Year's!
