You're Gonna Do What?!

I've spent time thinking of goals to set for the year. I don't think the New Years resolutions are lame-it's just a motivation tool, and when has that ever been a bad thing?! :)
I know most people don't agree with me, but I'm all for em-couldn't hurt...unless u pay for a full year of gym punishment! :)
My Resolutions:
1) Pursue my quest to make the perfect cupcake. It's daunting, dangerous, and takes a lot of cash-but I've been training to decorate them on rolls of bread, cups, fruit, and Jasmine's head-so I guess you could say I'm pretty confident. It's good to practice anywhere you go-and I once read that Eminem wrote many rap hits while riding on a bus before he was famous. If he can do it, I can too. I take icing and marzipan seriously! It's a bigger deal than airport security. FYI- I JUST found the source blogger for the above "Perfect Cupcake"-It's by the lovely lady blogger at 2 Stews. I recommend checking out her work since-compared to me-She's Obi Wan and I'm a young Jedi. Teach me the ways of the Force!!
2) Do everything I can to land an incredible and well connected literary agent for my manuscript. Fingers crossed and anthrax ready to send to those who reject me!

3) Make all A's in my grad school Psychology classes.(one day I'll be able to tell you if your crazy or not, and I'll get paid for it!!
"You hate cats?! Get out of my office!"
4) Show all the people i love how much they mean to me. They could be gone in an instant, and I hope the last words I say to them are "I love you." :)
What resolutions did ya'll decide to do?

Great resolutions Penny! I love when you post pics of delicious treats. LOL
Mine are pretty much the same. Love people and God more fully, work on my writing, etc.

I wish I lived closer so I could eat your cupcake rejects on the journey to perfection.
I'm getting a new agent after I finish Kicks. I'm going to can more stuff out of my garden. I'll plant more blue spruces.

Good luck on your goals!

I haven't come up with any goals other than Survive! But it's a worthy one, I think. :p
