Welcome to 2011.  I hope you enjoy your stay here for the next 364 days. I know there will be tears and fears, joy and stress, hope and sorrow, meetings and partings, new friends and old.  But hey, that's just life.

11 goals for '11
  1. Wake up earlier on the weekends.  Maybe this way I'll be able to actually accomplish something on Saturdays.
  2. Stay more organized. I love having a clean room, but it's a struggle for me to keep it clean longer than a week.  Let's try for at least two, yes? Yes.
  3. Less computer time, more non-procrastinating time. This is a huge goal for me, seeing as how I am the biggest procrastinator on the planet.  This list you're reading right now?  Also procrastination.  YUP!
  4. Become better friends with my brother.  Why the shocked face?  I want a better relationship with my brother, and become better friends before he goes on his mission.
  5. Write in my journal more.  If you were to read my journal right now, you might see one entry for every month.  Maybe.
  6. Read 11 Classic novels. I'm not talking Pride and Prejudice or A Christmas Carol, real classics that I normally struggle to get through.  Wish me luck!
  7. Learn to play the accordion.  Yes, you did read that correctly.  The accordion.  I've wanted to for a while, I just haven't actually done it.  Just, you wait, by December I'll be serenading you with my inspiring talent.
  8. Be optimistic. I'm not saying I'm the most pessimistic person on the planet, but I'm definitely not the most jubilant, that's for sure!
  9. Save money. I'm definitely not good at saving money, so I'm going to save, not spend.  I just have to remind myself of that every time I see a really cute pair of shoes or want a new book.
  10. Be more daring and adventurous. No more quiet, scared fearful of what others think.  I'm ready to take a chance on something and have a possibility of it not turning out so well.
  11. Be satisfied with what I have.  No lie, this one's going to be hard.  Everyone I know wants something more than they've got, so my goal is to make the best of what I have.
So, that's my list for this year, how about yours?
