As I mentioned yesterday, I think I might take up the Big, Fun, Scary Goal Challenge for 2008. It's going to be a year of big changes anyway, so I might as well make it a year to remember. So here's a temporary list-- hopefully I'll have a permanent list before New Years.
  • Actually attempt NaNoWriMo 2008, not just sign up for it and lose courage before writing a single word.
  • Learn enough Hebrew to puttering around in Israel this summer and be conversational by year's end.
  • Save money for a Scotland spring break. If I don't actually get to Scotland, then at least I have some money.
  • Graduate college.
  • Get a temporary job-- preferably with health insurance.
  • Send something to get published. Poem, short story, essay, anything.
  • Lose 10 pounds. Any more would be icing on the cake that I won't be allowing myself to have. :)
I'll add more as I think of it.



  1. I should probably learn a bit more Hebrew too before I go to Israel, but everyone has told me everyone there wants to use you to practice their English, so I figure I'll be okay.

    Happy New Year :]

  2. Arielle: Yeah, that's true, but if they practice their English on me and I practice my Hebrew on them, then we'll have a symbiotic relationship.

    Or maybe not. :)

    And happy New Year to you too!
