There's nothing to it, really

Let's talk about goals, shall we? Specifically, how I did with my 2009 goals.
  • Learn how to rock climb
Well, I went once. I even liked it, but those I went with, including myself, either got a girlfriend, got married, moved, or just isn't that close of a friend. I've talked about going several times with a group of girls in my new ward, we just haven't done it yet. Still, the goal was to learn, not to go every month. So, check.
  • Go to the gym 3-4 days a week
Ha. Hahahahahaha. Well, some weeks I did. I even had a personal trainer for a month or two. I had a dance class or two every week and even had a recital (that no one I know attended). So, it's not like I just sat around all day. Still, check-ish.
  • Read 26 non-fiction books, in alphabetical order by subject.
This one was harder than I thought. I've only read 7 thus far. To be fair, I WAS in grad school for most of this year, The Teachings of the Compassionate Buddha is NOT an easy read, and, well, that's it. Eilonwy is doing this with me, and she only read 8, plus she got married! So, tick mark that will be a check later.
  • Scripture journal every day
Definitely needs improvement.
Not so much on the weekly, but I did do it daily for the entire month of November. Check, depending on how you look at it.
  • Organize my things (What good is a desk if I can't use it, as there is too much clutter on it?)
Not only did I clean off my desk, I threw it away! In the Great Move, I had to downsize on the furniture, and the desk was the first thing to go. I did organize the heck out of what did move with me, and it still looks pretty great. So, check and check.
  • Learn how to knit, and then give someone something I knitted for Christmas
Not even a little bit. I bought a set of Knifty Knitters at some point, but I just didn't get the hang of it. I still want to learn to knit, but all in good time. No check at all.
  • Graduate
  • Finish the project I was hired for by the time I said I would
It's still not exactly finished. It may never be. I was, however, able to complete it to the point of unveiling and everyone is loving it so far! Check!

All in all, I did pretty well! Stay tuned for goals (and a personal motto!) for 2010!
