Things to do in 2014

In 2013 I posted a list of 100 things to do in the year, based off of a marvelous post from Summer Pierre's blog . I accomplished 28. It was interesting to actually write down goals though- not just weekly projects, or long-term plans, but a mixture of "hey this is neat I want to do this," and "this is a concrete step I need to take into adulthood or whatever."
But try as I might, it's February and this year I've only thought of 50. I didn't want to just Ctrl + P last year's list, though there are some repeats. Maybe it's because I'm a little consumed with trying to find paying work right now, but I can see myself more easily adding things after I've posted it, because then it's out there. Or maybe it'll stay at 50. I'm decisive!

  1. Take a mini road trip. 3-4 hours.
