Where has the time gone?? I’m seriously slacking on my goals.
Hmm, looking them over, it seems I’ve been getting stuff done after all. Way to go, subconscious self!
7. xxxxxxx xxx xx xx xxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxx
8. xxxxxxx x xxxxx xxxxx
And that’s all I’m going to say.
19. Go commando on a normal day
Funny thing was, I hardly noticed the difference. Maybe if I waited till after I did #58.
22. Paint my house
Cornflower blue in the bedroom, gorgeous field green in the second bedroom, lavender in the master bath and an elegant browny beige in the guest bath. The living room and kitchen are next.
36. Wear grown up jewelry
Mom lent me her earrings to wear to Lou Grace’s engagement dinner because I left all my jewelry at home.
43. Send Zingerman’s food to someone
90. Write a fan letter
Two in one! I sent a Zingerman’s gift basket to the cool CommerceGuys I met at DrupalCamp Chicago. They were so awesome.
44. Sleep with the windows open
Did this during the summer.
45. Throw a party
I threw a pumpkin carving party for SEMMY friends last Halloween. That’s when Pumpkie came into my life and lit up my house for a week.
50. Meet my neighbors
I knocked on doors to get people to attend the condo board meeting. It was nerve-wracking at first, but it turned out pretty easy once I got into the swing of it.
51. Go running at sunrise
David kept in shape during his vacation here by running everyday at dawn. Hardcore. He made me join him one foggy morning. He ran four laps around the neighborhood. I did umm one.
54. Sell something on eBay.
My bank sent me an Amazon kindle as a thank you for opening an account. (Cool, huh?) But I’m old school when it comes to my books.
58. Get a bikini wax
The Strip Manila has the sweetest staff. They made the experience actually quite pleasant. I’d say it was worth it.
60. Evaluate my stock portfolio
I’ve got a 401k and a Roth IRA and they’re both working for me!
61. Picnic in the park
The day before I had to return to the States, my aunt invited me to a picnic at the park near her home. I didn’t know how to react since the relatives hardly expressed an interest in us before. Consequently, the conversation was awkward on my part. Ah well! We had pancit palabok and chocolate cookies.
72. Wear a dress to work
The hardest part about this is finding the right shoes. Heels don’t work so well in our workplace.
78. Get my new old camera fixed
I showed it to Brian who took the battery case out and screwed it back on. Voila! Works like a charm. It just needed the magic touch of a ZingIT geek.
84. Have dinner with Bob
Over Christmas vacation, my brothers and I were able to have dinner without the parents a few times. Our family was never close growing up, so I look forward to hanging out with them every year.
85. Find a shoe storage solution for the entryway
Kitchen cabinet racks from Target fit perfectly.
86. Wake up at 6 am
Thanks to jetlag. Ha!
89. Deliver a presentation
I delivered a presentation about Open Book Finance at the Annual Gathering in Pittsburgh in July. It was a small group but we got to sharing experiences and asking questions of each other. I hope to speak again at this year’s AG, though I haven’t decided if I want to repeat or expand on the topic.
92. Get Moo cards
They’re so cute and memorable.
93. Bake mochi cake
94. Go hiking
During the IT camping trip last summer, we trekked through the dunes and along the beach. It was good exercise.
I’ve got to get cracking on the rest of the list!
