New Decade Resolutions

I don’t normally make new year’s resolutions. But 2010 is no normal new year. So I thought I’d make a list of things I resolve to do in the next decade. And here we go:

Train my beast. It’ll take that long.


Throw a charity fundraiser. And invite each of you.

Watch storms in Tofino. Why have I not done this yet?

Buy a boat — yacht, dinghy, I’m not picky.


Get a fancy camera. Then figure out how to work it. Aha! This resolution is a two-fer.

Fall in love with Buenos Aires. I’m head over heels already. Can’t wait to actually meet in person.

Perfect the art of the dance party.



Have an adventure. A really big one. I’m too chicken to sky dive, but I’ll think of something.

Cook once a week. For an entire decade? I’m committing myself to making more than 500 meals. Yeesh.


Man, I have a lot to accomplish before the ’20s are upon us. What about you? New year’s resolutions? New decade?

    I volunteer once a year. I like to think that i’m changing lives but I know I should really volunteer more.

    If you want to help it’s a great charity and a lot of fun! :)

    aww I love that pic of Leroy’s nose. Wow you’ve got a lot of resolutions, but that’s why you have a whole decade to complete them!

    I have the same resolutions every year “eat well, exercise and stay in shape” and “save more, spend less” lol
