Yearly Goals – 2007 Edition

Maybe if I write these down in a public place I’ll actually accomplish some of them.

  • Exercise twice a week
  • Once a week, try out a new recipe from one of my cookbooks
  • Run a half Marathon (there’s one in May and June)
  • Make it down a blue run at Cypress without falling. Accomplished on January 7.
  • Convince some friends to do the Polar Bear Swim 2008 with me and get costumes
  • Join a work sports team this summer
  • Help Emily find an amazing job in Vancouver
  • Organize a monthly poker/boardgame night
  • Go camping 4 times
  • Do the Grouse Grind
  • Take a foreign trip (in addition to Mexico in February)
  • Come up with some goals that aren’t related to recreation

New Goals:

  • Ride the Skytrain through every stop
  • Buy carbon offsets for all my flights this year.

  1. My two cents
    I like the part about finding me a job. I don’t like the one about the frigid swim. I find my (cold water) shower chilling when it’s below 25 degrees outside.
    My suggestion for a non-recreational goal would be to get so drunk you don’t remember the stupid phone calls you make at least once every two months.
    What happened to your Wreck Beach goal?


    1. Re: My two cents
      How about not making stupid, drunken phone calls in the first place? I only did that once, really. The second time I was only buzzed.
      I couldn’t find a good way to express the Wreck Beach goal. I’ll still go this summer, but it isn’t a goal.
