Plan Attempt 1

Visit Haunted Sites in Jersey
I am super psyched to do this one! I love lore (don't necessarily believe) and am really excited to finally check out some haunted sites with my friend. Her and I are probably going to have to plan this trip closer to this summer (given that by then we'll know our work schedules), so I guess planning is still up in the air.
But there is progress! Her and I have a pact to get this done, so I planned something; doesn't that count?

Read Harry Potter
Now you may be wondering- why haven't I read Harry Potter already?
Well, what can I say, my parents got me into Lord of the Rings early and reading a book about Wizards seemed almost heretical. I know other Tolkien fans would argue, but Lord of the Rings and the Redwall series constituted my childhood.
Nevertheless, I already read the first book (this winter break) and plan to devour the second and third over spring. Then I'll clean up the series in the first few months of summer.
So, see, I did some planning!

The Bucket List

I'm finally going to get this planning to plan thing underway. I know it's not February yet, but I think it would probably make sense to make a list of what I want to do. Also, if I post the list here I'll feel compelled to go through it and actually plan.
Here it goes (in no specific order):
1. Ride a motorcycle
2. Hike part of the Appalachian trail
3. Camp in the Pine Barrens
4. Visit haunted sites in NJ
5. Work on an H4H build
6. Go Bungee Jumping
7. Go rock climbing
8. Read Harry Potter
9. Buy a (mountain) bike
10. Go spelunking
11. Watch the original Star Wars episodes
12. Roadtrip
13. Attend a Supernatural Convention
14. Learn how to fly a plane
15. Run a 5k
16. Do Relay for Life
17. Donate blood
18. Learn to do some work on a car
19. Go to New Orleans
20. Own a car with personality
21. Play human flag football
22. Learn how to fight
23. Learn how to make Pecan Pie
24. Be part of a flash mob
25. Learn how to play the Blues Rhythm
26. Learn HTML5
27. Crotchet a scarf
28. See the sunset on the West Coast

That would be my list so far. I might strike some things later, but more than likely I'll be adding.
February is going to be so much fun!!
So Much Fun

Planning to plan is plain silly

I don't post often at all on this blog.
It's like on one hand I want to and then the other little voice goes "WATCH ALL THE YOUTUBE VIDEOS"
Can you guess which is louder?
To be honest, I feel like procrastination is running my life. Not ruining it per se, but it sure as hell ain't making it better.
I want to do more, to be more...
And then there's youtube and tumb1r and stumbleupon and, sure I want to do more, but I can do more later.
As a result, this February, I plan on planning. Like I'm going to make a list of things I want to do and this February I'm going to draw up plans on getting them done.
