So this is the year...

Soon, my To Do by 30 List will need to be completed. And unfortunately, I have not accomplished as much as I would have liked.

Things I have yet to do, but could still accomplish:
Travel Abroad
Pay off my car (will definitely happen)

Things I have yet to do, but are likely impossible by the time I turn 30:
Meet my goal weight (my current goal is to lose 15 pounds by my birthday and then I’ll work on the last 10)
Learn to play guitar (I got a new beginner book, but there’s no way I’m going to make that much progress…)
See the Oprah show live (haven’t given it a serious effort and I’ve heard it’s tough to get tickets)
Pursue photography (haven’t given it a serious effort)

I guess some things will have to get pushed to my To Do by 40 List. I also have a feeling that with John going to Iraq in May, I won’t be able to go on a European cruise. Maybe it can be a solo vacation though??

For the past year or so I have felt stuck. I feel like I fell in a ditch and I’m not able to pull myself out, but everyone is passing me by at full speed. Time keeps going and I’m not happy or content with anything about myself or my life. Lots of things seem to be dragging me down: my job, relationships, low self-esteem, home life, etc. I would like this to change. I need to get off my ass, go out into the world, take some action, and go after what I want out of life. If only it were that easy.
