I can hardly believe we are on the brink of a new decade! Inspired my roommate Sandra, I decided to set 10 goals for 2010 (I actually hope to achieve most of these by June since I’m not sure what awaits me when I arrive):

1. Arrive in Scotland by June 1st.

2. Run a 1/2 marathon in under 2.5 hours. I believe my PR is 2:29 – I am by no means fast, but this year, I will get faster. I am running the Tacoma City 1/2 Marathon on May 2, 2010. 

3. Attend a music festival with friends (hoping I’ll get to do 2: One in Scotland).

4. Fast more regularly–at least once/month, but once/week if I can get there.

5. Do sit-ups every night before bed.

6. Get in bed by midnight most nights and get up by 8 a.m. This is WAY better than having no sleep schedule (I’m trying to convince myself).

7. Sew a skirt. In order to finish this, I first have to complete an apron that my roommate got me started on.

8. Paint 10 paintings of any size. I have a bunch of new acrylic techniques that I am excited to try.

9. Sing and play guitar at an open mic.

10. Have an art show.

    Nicole, you should come down some Tuesday and do Open Mic at the Flatiron here in Greensboro if you really want to do an open mic somewhere. It’s very open to newcomers and really receptive and supportive in general. Just an idear. 🙂
