So even though the past couple of days were GORGEOUS out, I didn't go hiking. We also have way too many baked goods in our house right now, so I don't have a new baking post. In lieu of these usual post topics, I figured I'd post a quickie about some decisions I've made.
First of all, I've come to the conclusion that I need to start seeing more movies. I work in a movie theatre, for crying out loud. That's always seemed like the best thing ever. Granted, I work on the technical theatre aspect of things. I see movies sometimes when I work, and I saw The Artist the other day at a special Oscars event, but I rarely just go and see a movie. I think Fridays are going to be my movie-going nights. In March, the Campus is showing The Descendants, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Albert Nobbs, Dangerous Method, and The Iron Lady, respectively. I want to see or wouldn't mind seeing any/all of these. So if I can get company, I'll take it; if I have to go alone, I'll just have some me time!
The other decision I've made is to step up my progress on my 30 Before 30 list. I only have 4 years and 10 months to go! I've been keeping track of the things that happen over time, like the list of books, charity donations, etc. I haven't actually crossed anything off yet, though.
April 21st, there's a 5K in my town, for the Rotary club. I think I'm going to start training for it. The thing on my list is to run a 5K in under 25 minutes. Well, I've only run one 5K before, in college, and I did it in about 30.5 minutes. I'm not expecting to hit my goal this first time, but I can't reach a goal about running in 5K's if I don't actually run in them! If anyone wants to enter with me, start training now!
Another thing is to successfully make a souffle. I don't know why, but making a souffle has always seemed daunting. I'm going to attempt that soon. There are other things I'd like to start planning. When it's nicer, maybe I can convince someone to try the week-long camping trip with me (Aaron??). Maybe we could even do it while hiking the Appalachian Trail, and kill two birds with one stone. When we get to the beach, I can cross off the sunrise run and another lighthouse or two. It's also high time for another tattoo.
The big/expensive stuff like visiting a new country, Disney World, the west coast, etc. will probably have to wait till I have a real job and a life. Hopefully that will happen in the next 4 years and 10 months. :-P
So that's about it for now. I'll have a more interesting post soon. If you want to try the 5K with me, or be my movie buddy, let me know! :-)
