Wait, it's 2009?

"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further... And one fine morning-- So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." -FSF

Since the newness of the new year has worn off, and everyone has fallen back into their mundane routines ... I decided it would be a good time to reveal my to-do list for the year. With my pre-26 list, I accomplished about half the things on my list ... I also didn't take it as seriously as I should have either. This year, it'll be a different story:
  • give the List a facelift ... a major facelift
  • join gym
  • attend spin class on a regular basis
  • run in Shamrock 8k
  • take a yoga class
  • take train up to NJ & Boston
  • take my brother to see the sights around the National Mall
  • trek to Vegas in May
  • take my mom to see Bruce Springsteen in Charlottesville in May
  • go to movies alone
  • give up alcohol for Lent
  • rejoin the workers of the world
  • be on the lookout for the best job ever
  • knit more
  • read more
  • write more
  • read more books/ avoid the readers slump that I fell into during 2008
  • take advantage of my Smart Women Read Journal ... mark it up
  • give myself a haircut (?) ... I'm still unsure about this one; it could turn out really cool, or an absolute disaster ... my main motivation is that i don't wanna spend money on a haircut. decisions, decisions
  • purchase any of the following: Kindle, iPod Touch, or MacBook
