Things to do in 2012

Well it's here! Yeah, I know it was official 3 days ago, but it's just now sinking in for me. It always takes me a couple of days to get adjusted to the fact that it's a new year. I have never been a resolution maker, but I thought it would be fun to make a to-do list for the year. Something with a few things that were totally do-able and a few that would be a stretch. Some of them are just "keep it this way" things too, so it's not a true to-do list :)

I thought it would be fun to share my list here, and you can all keep me accountable.
  1. Raise $1500 for St. Jude. I'm raising money for them through my next race. It's a great platform to raise money for a wonderful organization! You can donate or share my page if you want to help me with this one :)
  2. Maintain running and good eating habits. I've been doing surprisingly well keeping up a healthy lifestyle. It doesn't even feel like work anymore! I'd love to maintain that for the rest of the year, and my life.
  3. Watch 100 movies in my book. This shouldn't be hard... For those that don't know what this means, I'm trying to watch all the movies in this book.
  4. Get the garage organized and keep it that way. Hopefully my roommates will help me with this one...I don't like spiders. 
  5. Learn how to sew and make something. This one will be a stretch...but even if it's something as simple as curtains, I'll be happy!
  6. Switch to a king size bed. This is something I want when I get married. I'd like to get married this year, so I guess this is my way of having "get married" on my list without actually having it on there.
  7. Paint the kitchen. I'm tired of the bright green...ready for something a little more muted!
  8. Lay laminate floor in the studio. This will make my studio so much better! If money allows, this will definitely get done.
  9. Keep the house clean. Hopefully this is something I'll think about at least weekly. I'm not super clean (just really organized), so it might be hard.
  10. Change pricing and structure of photography. I want to change the way I do my freelance work to make it more worth my time.
  11. Keep taking my vitamins
  12. Do more photo challenges. I need to enter some contests or something.
  13. Read a book a month. This is totally do-able! I am actually really excited about this one.
  14. Last but certainly not least: Do good things for other people. I think this is a good general rule for life, but it helps to put it on a list :)
I feel like this year is going to be a really good one. I hope you all are off to a wonderful 2012!
