By Age 30

Sometimes when I stop and realize that I’m 26 years old, it’s almost a little mind boggling. How can I possibly be only four short years away from 30? Here are some of my goals to achieve by that time.

By age 30, I would like to look at least 25 years-old. If I still look 18 it’s just going to be weird and awkward.

By age 30, I’d like to stop getting acne breakouts when I’m stressed.

By age 30, I want to learn to properly cook a steak. I set off the smoke alarm the first time I tried. The second and third times I just managed to make some barely edible meat.

By age 30, I would like to learn how to use an entire loaf of bread before it spoils.

By age 30, I want to eat pizza in 10 different states.

By age 30, I want to reach level 70 in Farmville.

By age 30, I want to write 1000 blog entries.

And finally, by age 30, I would like to be living in my own home. Sure, I’d prefer it to be a nice castle with a drawbridge and a moat, but that might be asking for too much.

Hello 2010!

It’s a new year. But it’s not just a new year, it’s a new decade. It’s a time for fresh starts, new beginnings, hope for the future and of course some New Year’s Resolutions!

Now most people tend to set unrealistic goals, and because of that, give up on their resolutions by mid-February. I’m not going to to do that though. I intend to pace myself with a nice set of goals that I really feel I have a good chance of keeping.

In 2010 I resolve to:

Continue not smoking. That’s right, I have never smoked in my life. Do I feel tempted to do so? Not at all. Thus, this goal is a perfect New Year’s resolution.

Continue enjoying my recliner. My recliner is something special. It reclines very far. It’s very comfortable. I can sit in it for hours on end and my butt doesn’t even complain!

Watch more TV. I’m paying $135 a month for cable. But between Netflix, Facebook, my computers, Wii, PS3 and texting my friends, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to watch TV!

Eat cookies. I love cookies. I intend to eat many in 2010! Are you going to eat cookies in 2010? If not, you’re a weirdo and I’m not sure that I’m comfortable being around you.

Eat a carrot. It will be tough, but I think I can do it.

See a squirrel scampering about during the summer time. I might even wave and say, “Hi squirrel!”

Listen to music. Hey, I’m listening to music right now. That means I’ve already kept this resolution. I am awesome!

Practice making the letter Z in cursive. That’s a tough one, especially if it’s a capital Z.

Place 50 orders at I placed 42 in 2009. Here’s an interesting tidbit; 2002 was the first year I ordered from Amazon. I had 4 orders that year.

Eat PopChips every month this year. Mmmm… PopChips.

Wow, making this list of resolutions was a lot of hard work. I think I will go reward myself with cookies… and PopChips… Mmmm.
