Firstly, I give myself a 2-month extension (why not?) on my last year’s resolutions. But feel free to dunk me in cold water anyway. They’re… close. Except the one about getting a study published. That one was preposterous! But I’m going to do something… stay tuned. Here are the more tangible/realistic goals for 2010. Wish me luck. Or, if you hate me, boo me. I like opposition
- Complete last year’s (2009) resolutions, except the stupid get a study published one and bring them to the next level (i.e., bring “product released” to “product is paying my bills”). I gave myself until the end of February on the first half of this and until the end of the year for the rest.
- Get accepted into Cal State Channel Islands’ dual-major MS Biotech/MBA program. That requires finishing two more classes, taking my GREs and… applying! I hope they still have the transcripts I’ve sent them…
- Stay fit. Lose 15 pounds, bench press more than I do now, and get a much, much better time on the next 10k I run (I hope to shave off at least 2 minutes from the same time last year), this coming spring. This I can do. I’ve lost weight before and I’ll do it again and keep it off. Being fit is the difference between being there for your grandchildren or being a senile lump of protoplasm.
- Bonus points, but #1-3 take priority: record a small album (just 6 songs is enough!) and finish that sci-fi novel. It’s pretty far along, so I would be stupid not to finish it.
