twelve in 2012

happy new year!

in the last few minutes of 2011, i looked forward and made a list of 12 things i want to do in 2012.

some of them are silly (it's late), some are serious (i'm kind of grown up after all), but i want to do all of them.

in no particular order, here they are:

  • move out of our increasingly too-small apartment
  • lose 20 lbs.
  • take a class with Sam (i'm regretting this one already)
  • learn what a brisket is (i'm curious)
  • choreograph a song
  • read through the Bible again
  • send at least 12 pieces of snail-mail (that aren't required by the gov't!)
  • perform 12 random acts of kindness
  • make a theme for each month (first off, i'm thinking fresh for january.  either i'll clean a lot, or be insulting ...)
  • write a good short story
  • try 12 new things
  • have a monthly date-night (at least!)

so.  that's that!  now ... will i persist?  ask me again next year ... ;)


  1. Your list of 12 things looks fun and exciting! I was wondering about a brisket last week... don't know if it's just a good old beef roast or not. Hope that your year is off to a fabulous start. xo

  2. Ah, you forgot one!

    13) Write more "Andronicus and Junia!"

    Yaaaay. Gosh, I love that story. Twelve more chapters, haha. Good luck with the brisket! I don't think anyone in my family has made one, so I'm quite helpless on that account :)
