New Year's Resolution

I am not usually one to write resolutions, mainly because I never follow through with them. And it's not because I don't want to follow through, it's purely because I forget the resolutions I made with such "resolve."

About a month ago, though, when I thought I had lost my job, I was thinking about some goals that I would like to accomplish. Then when I got a job back, I figured that those goals would just go out the window. I think, however, that I still want to try for it.

Just know that if for whatever reason I find out these goals are unreasonable, I will write about it here before giving up/altering the goals.

So, without further ado, I present to you my resolutions.

New Year's Resolutions for 2009
(holy crap! I can't believe it's 2009!)

1. Read 50 books in a year. I know. that's almost one entire book a week. Sounds crazy, but I have alot to read, and if I just sit back on my haunches watching endless hours of reality tv, I will never read them all. So, one book a week about is the goal. Stay tuned for some of my book reviewing!

2. Write 300 blog posts this year. I will be posting on why I like to blog in a little bit, but for now, know that it is very cathartic to write and I like having some of my life written down for the future. 300 may seem a bit much, but I originally said 350 then brought it back some in order to make it more realistic.

3. Finish reading the Old Testament. I just finished Psalms and I really want to make it through the rest of it this year. I always get stuck in the Old Testament because of the language and how the writing style loses me. This one I think will be somewhat easily accomplished though.

That's it. I know they are really reading/writing centralized, but those are some of my main loves in life.

I would like to say I am also trying to cook more recipes that I haven't tried and to do soem activities that I haven't done while here, but that is all financially dependent so I am not going to keep my hopes on them.

What are your goals if you are setting any?
