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! :-)


  1. They do a 5K here on New Years Eve called the "Resolution Run". I've thought about doing it this year.

    1. Ooo. If I'm still in the area then, and still have the desire to run 5Ks, we should do it!

  2. I'll check out movies with you, and I have had some experiences with souffles so im willing to help :)

  3. I had to Google "How many miles is a 5K?" and I ended up finding a pretty cool website: http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml

    I think I hate running long distances, but I've never actually tried it, so maybe I would like it?


    1. That is a pretty awesome website! (And yeah, 5K is about 3 miles. lol) A marathon is 26 miles. I probably won't be training for one of those any time soon. lol
