In the past I've made these kind of lists and they've been pretty unrealistic and unachievable. I don't know why I do that to myself - it's like self sabotage. I think the things on these lists should be challenging, but not impossible. So, this is my realistic
list for the following year. I feel excited about the things on this list.

- well, i started one!
