My birthday is coming up next week, it happens to fall in line when everyone else is taking a look back at the previous year and making goals for the coming year. I’m going to be the big three-eight… seriously, I don’t feel that old.
Anyway, I thought I’d take a look at the past year’s accomplishments and make a few goals for the coming year.
So, without further ado my accomplishments and goals…
☑ Transitioned from a vegetarian to a vegan life-style
☑ Created a blog to share my vegan journey
☑ Switched over to cruelty-free products
☑ Tried out cruelty-free hair color and also played with a blue/purple chunk
☑ Started finding time to read novels
☑ Began doing yoga again
☑ Began walking again, 3 miles in a little over an hour
☑ Started steps towards becoming a runner
☑ Walked/jogged 2 miles in a half hour! 🙂
☑ Tried countless new foods, both new recipes and new products
☑ Tried several new kinds of produce and revisited old ones:
… just to name a few
☑ Learned beginnings of Perl, PostgreSQL, Git, HTML, GIMP
☑ Started a long-time desire to create a cookbook database program combining Perl and PostgreSQL using Git for versioning
☑ Learned a bit about and played with my camera
Goals for 2010
☐ Learn Python and Qt
☐ Transition cookbook database program to Python-Qt
☐ Get RHCE certification
☐ Take camera/photo-taking knowledge to the next level, perhaps get a new ‘better’ camera
☐ Learn more GIMP
☐ Be able to run 5k by Summer
☐ Incorporate more yoga into my life, 3-4 times a week
☐ Try to find a balance between learning/coding/working/exercising/playing/relaxing
☐ Continue to try new foods; produce, recipes, and products
☐ Continue to switch out conventional products for cruelty-free ones
☐ Continue to strive to keep my family healthy and happy
Creating this list, I realized that my computer programming love has been set on the back burner for too long, I want to bring it back into the forefront.
How was your year of accomplishments? Any new goals for the coming year?
