Happy New Year!

2011 Goals

Happy New Year! I hope you're ringing it in in whichever way you prefer. I'm at my parents' house in CT for their big annual New Year's Day Open House. (I brought my chocolate-covered Chex mix. I'm sure you're shocked.) I don't really like the word "resolutions," so I tend to set goals for the New Year instead. My goals for this year - or at least the ones I'm planning to blog about - revolve around spending my leisure time more deliberately doing the things I want to be doing. So!

1. This is the big one. I haven't read anywhere near as much as I've wanted the past few years, and I've also developed a bad habit of starting lots of books and never finishing them, either because they have to go back to the library or because I get distracted. So my goal this year is to finish 200 new-to-me books and blog about them all. I won't promise full reviews of all of them, but I'll at least spend a few sentences telling you about them and what I thought.

2. Watch 100 new-to-me movies (and, again, blog about them). I'm hoping to both see more current movies so I don't feel this end-of-year award season rush again, and to catch up on some classics I've missed.

3. Try 100 new-to-me recipes. I love to cook and bake, but too often end up just falling into a rut of making the same things all the time. And I have tons of cookbooks (and recipes bookmarked online), so I should put them to better list. I'll at least keep a running list here on the blog of what I've tried, and I'll post pictures of any that are interesting or come out particularly well.

I also want to make more of an effort to keep up with new music this year, although I don't have a specific goal with that. And I want to keep running lists of particularly good TV episodes I see and articles/essays I read, so I can do top ten lists of those next year too.

What are your goals for 2011?
