#1--Have A Steady Pen-Pal

As of right now, I have four! There is a girl in Australia, a soldier in Fort Knox, a girl in England, and a soon-to-be EMT in Northern VA. I'm very excited about all this, because it means I get a constant stream of mail! I had a pen-pal at one time in Russia, but it was taking so long to get her letters and for her to get mine, I think we sort of forgot about each other. In any event, I can't wait to cross this one off--I think I'll consider it completed if I can keep this up for at *least* 6 months.

#41--Eat Something I Think I'll Hate, #92--Go To The Gym At Least Once A Week

#41--Today for my roommate's birthday, we went to a Korean restaurant. I tried Kimbap, a type of Korean sushi. Now, I love sushi, but this kind had beef, pickle, egg, carrot, and avocado. I was definitely skeptical, but I tried it and it was so good! A definite plus for the night.

#92--I think I need to explain this a bit. By "once a week", I mean once a week while I'm at school and have gym access. So anyway. I'm going to the gym tomorrow with my friend Rob...also, I did 20 sit-ups this morning, and I'm about to do 20 more. I feel really good about this.

#72--Keep A Steady Journal

Alright, this one is kind of hard to measure exactly. As of 1/1/08, I've been keeping two journals. One is a generic Target brand journal in which I write, and the other is a small moleskine which I use to do a sort of visual journaling/scrapbooking. The small one is a "theme" journal, if you will. I don't use them *every* day like I should, but I use them quite frequently. I'm not crossing this one off yet, but I just wanted to give you an update. When I finish either of the journals, I'll cross it off.

#85--List 100 things that make me happy about my closest loved ones

Well, I have 5-7 people in mind that I want to do this for. Tonight, I completed the first. I don't feel comfortable posting the actual list online, but here is a random sampling:

6. I love the way you worry about me.
26. I love your dedication.
33. I love knowing you're always supporting me.
88. I love how we share stupid inside jokes.
99. I love how passionate you are about the things you love.

Once I finish the other lists, I'll be able to fully cross this one off.

#25--Learn How to do Makeup

I did my eye makeup today based on the advice of an Origin's makeup counter lady and according to this guide:

I don't have a picture of it on me, but it turned out really nicely! I'm excited, and I also learned how to do my lipstick (again without a picture). I'll take one the next time I do it, and I'll be sure to post it.

I'm crossing it off the list, yay!
