With a new again beginning, I have been thinking about where I am going to be next year. Already a year away, but I am excited to think about what my next big adventure will be. But with that, I have realized that I don't want to make this year another year of waiting for the next big leap(or flight, but more on that later). I saw on Pinstrosity that the one lady had made a list for her todo this year. She has 101 items to do and while I admire that, I think for my first time doing this, I will make mine a max of 50.
My list will consist of bad habits to break, new skills to learn, improving skills I have, and things I want to accomplish. Committing to things that improve myself is hard for me. This is something I want to do though.
Once I have accomplished an item, I will write a date and post a picture if it is something I can publish.

2. Have blog up to date by March 1st.
