The massive, annual, hopeful, probably too long, list of summer goals:

Books I want to read/finish (at least a few of them this summer...):
-Finish Zorro
-Finish Deep Economy
-Michael Pollan's Food Rules
-Let the Great World Spin
-Finish the Alchemist
-Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Concerts I want to go to:
-Ryan Star...it's this Saturday, so...not likely, but it would be awesome
-Carbon Leaf..next Monday!
-Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers (in September)
-Twilight Series (concerts, not vampires)? Beirut?

Movies I want to watch:
-Karate Kid
-He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not (for like the 4th time...but oh well)
-Letters to Juliet
-The September Issue
-Coco avant Chanel

-make enough money to pay tuition in the fall (car wash? bake sale? garage sale?
-continue to work in the adlab
-go to the farmers market
-eat all the bing cherries I want
-make a batch of freezer jam
-make a loaf or two of semolina bread with basil butter
-really improve my rumba, so when gold latin auditions come around...
-eat less cheese
-learn a few more phrases in French or Italian (besides "Je ne comprends pas" or "Parlo un po' d'italiano")

I'm making a goal to read something every day. The newspaper, a book, Ad Age. Anything.

And you can hold me to it. In fact, please do.

"what you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. it will decide what gets you out of bed in the mornings, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you. fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything."
