I almost forgot to do this. I try to write ten 'accomplished' goals and ten 'pending' goals at the turn of every year. They don't always match up - I only achieved five of the ten goals I wrote down on 12/31/05, for those who care to check the archives - but there are always ten things to write in a year, even if they weren't the ten I was originally aiming for. So here's the 2006/2007 list:

2006 Accomplishments:

1) Went skydiving
2) Completed the 15k River Run
3) Got accepted to graduate school
4) Graduated from UF
5) Made the switch to a Mac laptop
6) Visited 7 new states (CN, DE, MA, NH, NJ, NY, ME)
7) Completed the 8-mile Boston Light swim
8) Learned to kneeboard
9) Started studying a new language (Farsi)
10) Completed my first Olympic-distance triathlon

2007 Aspirations:

1) Complete the Disney half marathon (13mi)
2) Complete the 15k River Run (again)
3) See Josh Groban in concert
