I feel like I did the dorkiest thing today. I sat down and wrote out my short-term goals. I guess you could say it's my New Year's Resolution to try and finally find a little more direction in my life. My short-term primary focus is to improve my Korean language skills, climbing, and guitar playing. It seems like it's not a lot to ask, but in practice, it's more difficult than it seems! I always feel like I don't have enough time! This is the first time in my life since college where I feel like I don't have enough time to do the things I want to do. I also have to remember that progress is slow and requires hard work, but it DOES happen if you stick with it.

So what do you think of my goals? Leave a comment or send me an email if you think I'm crazy! Make sure I stick with it! These are my short-term goals to try to stick with until I leave (tentatively) for Thailand on 2/2/07.
