Well, if there is one thing I’ve learned in my 31 (almost 32) years on this Earth is that you can’t plan life, although I’ve certainly tried! But I’m learning to deal with it. Afterall, the fun is when opportunities come up that you weren’t even expecting.
#8 Sell a piece of art (and realize my childhood dream, which is #28 on the 40/40 list): Nothing on this one yet. I PROMISE I’m doing this one this year.
#46 Scuba Diving: Gonna head to the Rock Quarry when it gets warmer.
#52 Read the Greatest Books Ever Written (#7 on the 40/40 list): I’m failing at reading in general lately. I’ll do better.
#65 Shout ‘Drinks Are on Me!’ in a Pub or Bar (#17 on the 40/40 list): Ok. I’ve got my bar picked out and I know the perfect time to do it. Now I’m just waiting for news big enough that warrants me shouting in a bar.
#68 Save Someone’s Life (#8 on the 40/40 list): I’m on pace with 2 pints donated so far for the year. 4 more to go for the year. (I’ve donate 6 total pints for lifetime)
#84 Learn to Ski (#32 on the 40/40 list): COMPLETED!
#93.5 Get Your Name in the Ring of Honor: COMPLETED!
Goals from my 40 Before I’m 40 List:
#1 Be Able to Do a Pull Up: Hopefully rock climbing will help with this.
#11 Learn to Rock Climb: COMPLETED!
#18 Watch the Top 1,001 Films: Have watched 3 of 100. I need to pick it up!
#25 Drink All the Beers on the GQ List: Have drank 2 of 20
#36 Learn How to Ballroom Dance: My dance lessons are scheduled for April.
#37 Start Using Coupons: I’m kinda halfheartedly doing this. Baby steps.

- I’m going to try my hand at brewing my own beer.
- I’ve never done “hoity-toity” afternoon tea so I hope to do that this spring.
- I’ve got some interesting musical experiences ahead of me in the coming months, including going to a concert by myself…
- Thinking about trying out hang gliding at Kitty Hawk in the fall.
- I’ve signed up for the “Over the Edge” event for October 6th.
- As soon as registration opens, I’m signing up for The Color Run in Charlotte, October 27th
How are you doing with your goals for 2012 thus far? I personally need to read more, watch more films, and drink more beer!
