2011 Goals

I didn’t put this up immediately for two reasons: first, everyone is doing new year’s resolution posts right now and I insist on being “different.”  Second, I wanted to put everything down on “paper,” let it sit awhile and then come back and take a another look at it before finalizing the list.

My goals for the year 2011:

1. Submit writing every month to a publicaton – with the implication being that someone somewhere will publish me

2. Develop, outline, draft and write two short stories

3. Participate in NaNoWriMo

4. Review Latin – Poetry and plays might be the best way to do this

5. Learn algebra – I knew this at one point I need to brush up on my math skills

6. Do the Lake Berryessa two mile swim

7. Bike a century

8. Buy as few new things as possible – this is an attempt to reduce, re-use, recycle, and repair more.

9. Do more with my hobbies (besides gaming) – I have a lot of cool stuff lying around that I could be doing things with, this is what this is here for.

10. Jump out of a plane – I needed something to round out the list!

There you have it folks!  How will I do?  Only 362 days until you find out!

EDIT – I forgot what the real number ten was supposed to be until just now.  I suppose it can be number eleven:

11.  Meditate everyday – I’m specifically thinking of Zazen.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
