Summertime Manifesto

I know that summer isn't technically here yet, but I've already made a list of things I'd like to accomplish this summer. I am a huge fan of making lists - they make me incredibly happy.

This summer, I'd like to:

1) eat better and exercise and really keep it up instead of doing it for a week and then going back to my old habits

2) look for a new job

3) purge our living quarters of unnecessary crap

4) have a yard sale

5) complete the documents necessary to amending our marriage license, so that I can finally change my name (hopefully)

6) get organized - this means everything: my computer, our apartment, my work computer, and everything else in between (everything has been entirely too chaotic for entirely too long)

7) edit all leftover photos

8) take lots of pictures

9) write a lot

10) research and read for my thesis

11) sign up for a consultation for Lasik

12) relax and have fun

So, that's my summertime manifesto in list form. What do you want to accomplish/do this summer? I'm interested hearing about what's on other people's lists.

I too live for lists. My roommate in college used to tease that I took more time making lists than actually completing them. What can I say? They're one of my obsessions. Coincidentally, a lot of the items I would have on my to do list for the summer are similar to your's. Must start making my own list as I have two weeks left. Woo Hoo!

That is a long ass list for the summer. But I'd expect nothing less from you. ;)

My summer goals are to get into an exercise routine, get out of my funk and have fun. And that other thing. :)

Don't forget:

13) come visit your brother in Minneapolis!

Can't wait to see you guys . . . !
