    my 2011 goals.

    12.28.2010 / ARCHIVES

    OK, Erin. A 2011 to do list for you, from you. Perhaps talking to yourself in first person should be gracing the list below:

    1. Stop using emoticons. No, really. Quit it.
    2. Avoid the word “got.” It can always be replaced with a better alternative.
    3. Drink as much coffee as you’d like and stop feeling guilty about it. It’s delicious.
    4. Make your bed daily.
    5. Join a book club (can be online). Read assigned books in said book club. No cheating.
    6. Walk George and Bernie at least four times a week.
    7. Stop picking at your cuticles. It’s gross and you’re going to get old lady fingers.
    8. Throw a party.
    9. Make a habit of sending postcards to unsuspecting friends.
    10. Let’s try and stop with the impulse purchases and boredom-induced shopping, OK? Great.
    11. Minimize complaining.
    12. Plan your dream vacation with Ken. You two deserve it.
    13. Dance party daily.
    14. Finish one entire tube of lipstick before switching colors. You’re getting totally ridiculous, you know?
    15. Have some fruit for breakfast once in awhile; it’s not gonna kill you, Loechner.
    16. Get behind the camera every day. You don’t have to be a photographer to catch a memorable moment.
    17. Start living a real life, instead of an Internet life. No more weekend working.
    18. Moisturize nightly, preferably with something lavender. You’ll sleep sweetly.
    19. Finish reading The Renaissance Soul. You liked it, remember? Pick it back up.
    20. Tackle ten items from your Life List. Ready, set… GO.


    • These are good goals. i think you’ve been firm but fair with yourself. good luck!

    • All of this emoticon hate is making me want to use THREE TIMES the emoticons, you know that? :D :) ;) XD

      17. Go to New York City for non-work reasons. And go out for dinner and drinks with Anna and Evan while you’re there.

    • I’m totally working on the same kind of goal list for 2011 (mine is prominently featuring the goals of taking my vitamins and wearing moisturizer at night).

      Can I borrow the stop using emoticons list? Because I SO NEED TO STOP TOO.

      Also, I love the first person approach to this. Can I borrow that too?


    • Now this is what I call a 1-year plan! And I couldn’t agree more with No. 3: Coffee is delicious…

    • YES! so glad you guys approve. go forth, borrow and create! :)

    • CRAP. i just emoticonned. dangit. this is going to be ROUGH.

    • don’t be too hard on yourself erin – it’s not 2011 yet!

      i need to start on my 2011 list…i’ll review last years since i know i bombed a few things. also, slow readers book club is a good one online – i joined last year (although i only read two books – hopefully this year will be better).

    • oooh thanks for the tip, stephanie!

    • Love the list! I’ve been compiling mine since October, but I need to finish and publish it this week (so that the interwebs hold me accountable). I, too, would love to join a book club, but I can’t seem to get any of my friends interested in doing it.

      And instead of emoticons I need to ration my exclamation points. I’m a serious offender.

    • i like your goals. i like your goals a lot…
      especially the dance party goal. do it!
