Snail Mail Sunday (Done on Monday) #2

Dear Big, Fun, and Scary Goals 2008,

As I always need something to do in life, I've decided to join your noble crew. Here's my list for BSF 2008 awesomeness.

  • 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. :)
  • Read 17 books from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die Spreadsheet. Apparently, I need to read 17 a year in order to complete all 1001, so, here's the beginning.
  • Get my finances in order.
BSF 2008, I hope I'll be able to complete all the goals I set out for this year. 'Cause I want to win, dammit.

Yours truly,



  1. Good luck with this list!

    Have you seen DailyLit before? It might be able to help you knock a few of those books off the big list.

  2. Gwyn: Thanks! Yeah, I have heard of DailyLit-- in fact, I've been reading Emma on DL for a little while now. It's going to take me forever because I keep forgetting about it.


  3. Learning a new language is a great one. I wish there were Italian classes available to me...

    Here's to graduating college.

  4. Rachel: It's a tall order, but I'll try. If you really want to learn, you can use Rosetta Stone or Pimsleur. I'm doing both at the moment.

    Yay for graduating, boo to the real world.
