2012 Goals

Filed under: Uncategorized — megs @ 12:14 pm
Major Goals:
  1. Pass the Bar
  2. Get a job in the legal profession
  3. Lose the rest of the 20lbs
  4. Run another half marathon
  5. Move to a house
#1: Pass The Bar
I am retaking the exam at the end of February.  After this post, I will turn into a social hermit once again.  Rest assured, you’ll see me again in March.
#2: Get a job in the legal profession
As delighted as I am to be drawing a paycheck again, I really would prefer a job in my field.   This year, I have to make that happen.
#3:  Lose the rest of the 20lbs.
20lbs was my goal for weight loss last year, and I only managed part of it.  Now that the holidays have passed, it is time to buckle down and lose the rest.
#4: Run another half marathon.
I ran an unexpected half marathon last year, and really enjoyed it.  I liked the training routine, and I loved the way my cholesterol dropped.  So I’m going to do another one some time this year.   I haven’t decided when yet.  But you’re welcome to join me.
#5: Move to a house
Chris and I have been living in this same apartment for seven years now.  We think it’s time for some nicer digs.
Bonus Goals:
  1. Learn to play guitar
  2. Zelda Ocarina-thon
  3. Have better posture
  4. Try Muay Thai
#1: Learn to play guitar
This time around, I’m going to make the guitar my post-Bar sanity hobby.  And Chris offered me some incentive. He said if I master the instructional material I already have, he’ll buy me a banjo, which is my ultimate musical goal
#2: Zelda Ocarina-thon
I know I can beat this game in one epic sitting.  I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
#3: Have better posture.
My posture sucks.  I’m going to be making a conscious effort to change it this year.
#4: Try Muay Thai
There’s an awesome kickboxing class I’ve been thinking about taking.  The first one is free.
So that’s the plan for the year, folks.  If I think of anything else, I’ll let you know.


  1. How’d the bar go?
