Project 52

I love New Years and the resolutions that come with it, though I’m not always steadfast in my ability to follow through. I am much better about setting goals and completing projects than I am with specific resolutions. For 2011 I decided to take a different approach, push my boundaries a bit and try some new things. Some are things I have been planning on doing anyways, and some are things that are going to be out of my comfort zone. I can always add or delete from the list, but I’ve come up with 52 projects for the year that I’d like to try. That’s one a week, though some are definitely going to overlap into other weeks or be year long projects. This blog is supposed to help me keep track of what I accomplish.
