24 in 2012, a Year's worth of Goals

I have decided that since I don't have all my numbers yet to go over my 2011 Goals I would just post my 2012 goals. When I was doing my 2011 goals I remember thinking that maybe 13 goals was to many. But in stead of stream lining it I assigned myself 24. Travel is a new subsection for me. I would like now that I have a car to start doing small weekend or day trips. Also it's the bicentennial anniversary of the War of 1812 between Canada and the USA. So I want to go see lots of re-enactment's.

  1. I did the same thing just yesterday. Since I now own a car I went exploring my island. It was awesome. It is definitely worth it.

    I wish you success in 2012 and the re-enactments sound cool.
