New Years Goal

New Years is a time where people make resolutions - this year I've decided to not make resolutions to change things about myself because I don't think I ever stick to them. I've decided to create a list of things I would like to do in the year 2012. I figure if I write them all down then I can use this year to try and achieve as many of these things as possible.

50 things to do in 2012 (in no particular order):
  1. Move out of home
  2. Rescue and love a kitten from the RSPCA
  3. Watch all seasons of Mad Men
  4. Read 50 new books

Happy New Year!
