Things to Do in 2014

It’s that time of year again, friends…. Time to release my list of things that I want to do in the upcoming year.

Last year, I made a list of 33 things to do and completed 21 of them.  63%… not too shabby. For those who are following along, I also completed 21 items on my list for 2012… but there were 51 items on that list (42%). I’m hoping to do better this year and really achieve some exciting things… Here’s the list in no particular order!  Happy New Year!

1. Complete Couch to 5k program <This has been on the list for the past 2 years… 2014 is the year this gets done because of #2.

2. Run 5k race during Ottawa Race Weekend <Already signed up, just need to run it.

3. Get my G2 <This has also been on the list for 2 years.

4. Start a Shopify Store

5. Blog Every Week <Last year, I wrote 31 posts. Be prepared for more!

6. Send more paper mail (even though stamps are jumping up in price)

7. Learn to play the ukulele

8. Adopt a puppy

9. Complete the decluttering of my apartment.  If I don’t use it or don’t need it, it can go!

10. Quilting Project!  More on this in a future post – It’s going to be a year long quilting project.  Super excited about it.

11. Improve posture

17. Wake Up earlier on weekdays

19. Get reffing derby

20. Read any books that I currently own that are unread <See photo below… Just realized that these are almost all books that I picked up from work and have read little bits of, but have not finished. Also, in my Kobo – Tim Ferris’ 4-Hour Workweek.
