32 Things

So, you know how I embraced the ‘fail, fail again, fail better’ mantra in 2012, it applied to pretty much all aspects of my life – especially the 31 Things list I made. I think I completed about 1/3rd of it. Maybe not even that. But As Elizabeth and I were discussing on Twitter last week – it’s not about completing it all, it’s more about having goals!

There were some things on the 31 Things list that I really want to do, so I am carrying them over, but I also have some new goals.

So, here’s to being 32 and here is my ‘32 things to do before I am 33’ list.

  1. Make/do a project a month.
  2. Including – the sky quilt.
  3. Don’t succumb to chopping all my hair off (again).
  4. Try one food type i don’t like a month.
  5. Swim. A lot.
  6. Figure out my clothing style.
  7. Make more online friends real life friends.

I probably wont blog each and every one of these that I complete, because, you know, me not chopping all my hair off, that’s not news, but I might report back on a few. Keep an eye out.

What goals have you set yourself this year?
