50 Things from Sept ’13 – Sept ’14

I was reading through a blog I like called Alien’s Day Out and noticed she had made a list of “101 Things to Do in 2013”. I felt inspired to do the same, and while it’s not the new year, the following is my list of to-dos in the following year. Some are frivolous such as “swim in the ocean” and some are obvious stretch goals like “read through the new testament in Korean in a year”. But I think they’re all possible, and will be a good reminder for me of my goals for the following year.

By the way, I’ve started reading the new testament in Korean, actually a “Korean-for-kids” bible, and it’s taking me almost 30 minutes per chapter. I’m currently at Matthew Ch 5. My goal is a chapter a day.

This list will be kept on the right pull out folder of this site and I’ll cross off the items as completed.
