2014 Kick-in-the-Butt List

  1. Read through the whole Bible. (Audio counts.)   For real this time. I'm already through Genesis. One down, 65 to go.
  2. Read 40 books.  There have been points in my life where this would be no big deal, but lately I've been abandoning reading for more brainless activities. It almost the end of January and I haven't finished even one book. Not cool.
  3. Purge 100 items from my apartment.  Yes, 100. I am counting old magazines which will easily account for half of this. This is probably really only a fraction of what I should be getting rid of. This apartment is big, but I have way too much stuff. I need it out.
  4. Find an organizational system that actually works for me.  There are piles everywhere. I am a total slob. Half of the stuff I own doesn't have a home. It is not working.
  5. Finish decorating the apartment.  This includes quite a few things, such as painting a dresser, hanging artwork, etc, but we have lived here over a year and it still looks temporary. There's a good chance we'll be here a couple more. It needs to feel like home.
  6. Knit more.  I'm not going to quantify this one but I've been working on one hat for 2 or 3 years. I have a ton of yarn, and knitting is soothing. Time to get to it. 
  7. Make it over the wall in the Mud Run.  I had a blast last year, but I was entirely unprepared and it kicked my butt. The wall in particular was impossible. I fell on my bum a couple times and then went around. This year, I will conquer. 

I can do seven goals, right? Two going on three jobs leaves me plenty of free time...
(It started out as five, but I'm an overachiever.)
