Not new year's resolutions

I've never made new year's resolutions.  I have a hard time imagining what I'll be doing over the course of an entire year.  Also, I feel like no one really expects to follow through on their new year's resolutions, and that doesn't seem like a good way to start.

I have been thinking, though, that setting some goals would be a good exercise for me.  I think goals would help me structure my time a little better, and possibly help me stay off Hulu.  Since this is my first real goal-setting experience, I'm going to start small, and set ten goals to accomplish in the next three months.

Sneak peek of my new embroidery project!
Some are fun things that I want to do, some are less fun things that I want to want to do, but don't really.  Some are things I'm already working on and some are things that I've been talking about doing for ages.

10 goals for February, March, and April

1. Make two new recipes a month out of cookbooks I already own
2. Start an embroidery project
3. Go to class and do my homework
4. Do something active 3x/week (gym or something else!)
5. Follow my new chore chart (a post on this coming up)
6. Write and mail three letters
7. Bake a loaf of bread
8. Hang art on walls (I have the art, it needs to go on the walls)
9. Create an "official" budget with Linn
10. Plan a vacation!

Do you have goals or new year's resolutions?

Except the 3. one, I really like them all! :)

p.s.-Some of those things are things that I've been talking about doing for ages, too. :/

Here's a vacation thought - Berthica and I would like to come visit - how does end of June beginning of July sound?

Yeah, 3 isn't my favorite either....
