20 in 2012

…here we go! I can’t believe it’s time for a new list already. I’m carrying over some of the unaccomplished goals from 2011. And reusing a couple because they’re just THAT legitimate.

  1. Nurture social relationships.
  2. Be Bold.
  3. Make at least 2 items of clothing from scratch.
  4. Take my camera everywhere – even if that means looking ridiculous. Or like a tourist {easy to do in SF}. All in name of getting better, more interesting pictures.
  5. Get over 1,000 followers on Twitter. Just ’cause.
  6. Update my Linkedin Profile because it hasn’t been updated in, like, 4 years. Note: Great article on words to avoid.
  7. Buy less new, buy more used.
  8. Find a way to be part of a solution to a problem. {right now, education is at the top of my list.}
  9. Take regular work from home days.
  10. Read at least 1 book/month.
  11. Take care of myself. I know, I know, this is broad. It covers things like: stop eating so much shit. Workout so I have more energy to do the things I want to do. Take meds. Drink more water. It’s not THAT hard, really. C’mon, Kate.
  12. Continue to work on that small talk thing.
  13. Read current events, not just the ones that look interesting in my inbox or on twitter.
  14. Meet up bi-monthly with someone from the blogging/social community that I haven’t hung out with before – coffee, drinks, whatever.
  15. Spend more time with the people I love.
  16. Learn more about my family history, especially on my dad’s side.
  17. Ask the tough questions.
  18. Get into cooking with cast iron.
  19. Let my hair get long.
  20. Pick up some more sweet dance moves.

I’m up for coffee. You’d have to come to London though! (but would you really mind?)

Your list is so inspiring! Definitely adding a few more things to mine now 🙂

Inspiring list Kate. If you head over to my place for an X Box Connect Dance Central date, you can pick up some sweet dance moves. So fun!
