keep a cleaner home. Neatness is undervalued.

Andrew Huff / December 27, 2010 4:38 PM

...lose the 15 pounds I put on after Cinnamon wrote a cookbook.

That starts with the indoor bike trainer I got for Christmas. :)

The year I turn 40, run a half marathon and wear heels at least once a week.

Kara / December 28, 2010 10:22 AM

I don't have a specific itinerary. But I *do* know that 2011 is the Era of Kara!

Mucky Fingers / December 28, 2010 10:25 AM

I will focus more on my eBay sales. I want to get rid of all that I've been collecting over the years. It just feels like stuff now.

kblack / December 28, 2010 11:36 AM

Get back some of the income I lost in the last 3 years!

... drink 365 different beers in a year.

I've tried this lofty goal in the past, but always slow down around the middle of the year.

Charles / December 28, 2010 12:32 PM

Get back into shape and start culinary school!

Mike D / December 28, 2010 3:42 PM a half or full marathon.

...finish at least one of my damned writing projects (that stage play, screenplay, finish that poetry ebook, short stories)

...change my name to Hocus Pocus Dominocus

Cinnamon / December 28, 2010 3:51 PM

Return to writing a cooking column (without gaining more weight), take one day a week for nothing but fun, and maybe relearn how to ride a skateboard.

G / December 29, 2010 9:43 AM

Get rid of this terrible job and focus on my passion. Take better care of my self.

Emily / December 29, 2010 12:57 PM

...actually use all of my vacation time *and* get out of the country at least once.

kate / December 29, 2010 1:17 PM

Turn 30 & make a big move.

Seth Barnhart / December 29, 2010 5:32 PM

live within my means.

Baldeesh / December 29, 2010 10:37 PM

Take my knitting more seriously.

soup / December 31, 2010 1:10 PM

Finally, I'm going to take a class at Old Towns School of Folk. I have a hard time justifying the expense, as I am deep in student debt... but... I wanna dance with wholesome people!

charlie / January 1, 2011 1:26 AM

Open a restaurant

Daniel Honigman / January 1, 2011 5:51 PM

DEFINITELY take better care of myself. And start traveling more.
