2011 Performance Review

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 11:59 am

I set out 10 goals for 2011: five major goals and five bonus goals that would be nice to achieve, but which I did not consider vital to the success of the year.

Major Goals:

  1. Pass the Bar
  2. Graduate
  3. Lose 20 lbs
  4. Run the Warrior Dash on Saturday, April 2.
  5. Get a job

Of these goals, I managed three.  I finally graduated lawschool, which I consider my most important achievement of the year.   I ran the Warrior Dash in some excellent company.  And I did in fact end the year with a job.

I did not manage to lose all 20lbs of weight, though I managed some.   And, of course, the elephant in the room is that I did not pass the Bar.

Why did it have to be Real Property?

Sub Goals:

  1. Learn leathercrafting
  2. Learn more than one chord on the guitar
  3. Master some new crockpot recipes
  4. Zelda Ocarina-thon
  5. Go camping
I finished three of these goals as well.  After the Bar exam, I turned to leathercrafting to stay sane and keep my mind of the test results.  I took classes at Tandy, and I’ve had a lot of fun with it so far.   I picked up a whole book of healthier crackpot recipes, and several of them have become regulars in our rotation.   I did go camping, along with most of the people who are likely to be reading this blog, for Chris’ 30 birthday party.
I still haven’t gotten around to picking up the guitar, and I didn’t manage to squeeze in the Ocarina-thon.
2011 Bonuses:
I also engaged in some unplanned awesomeness for the year.  I ran a half-marathon, which is something I never seriously considered before.  And because of all the training I did before hand, I also dropped my cholesterol a bunch.  This is a trend I want to continue in 2012.
All told, 2011 was a  pretty successful year.  Thank you, my friends and family, for all your help in making it that way.
