New Years Resolution

Weeeeeeeeeee!  The end of 2009 has come and I get to look back at my new year's resolutions from last year and gauge how successful I have been at meeting my own expectations.  So lets take a look and see what level of depressions I have earned myself this year.
  1. Learn how to play 5 hymns on the piano.  (I learned the melody to part of "Come Come Ye Saints... ... I would consider that a success!)
  2. I think there was one that had something to do with swimming (or maybe biking)...
  3. I don't quite remember any of my other many well intentioned and high reaching goals...
So Savannah tried to tell me that I failed miserably, especially since I can't remember most of them.  I guess I can kind of see her side.

So this year I am going to do things completely different.  I am going to share a few of my new years resolutions for 2010 here so everyone can see it.  In the comments here on this blog (not on facebook, but on this blog) you can claim one of my resolutions, and then at the end of the year, if Savannah has determined that I have not met the resolution that you claimed in the comments, I will give you $100.  Now only one person can claim any single resolution, so once one is claimed, you have to pick another one until there are no more left.
  1. Release 3 websites (I'll announce them as they are released here on our blog)
  2. Release an Android/IPhone program on either the android market or the app store
  3. Read The Book of Mormon from front to back before the end of April (to be paid out in May if I fail)
  4. Learn how to Surf
  5. Take at 3+ night campout with Jared
  6. Go out of my way to do additional exercise at least twice a week, with exceptions when traveling or in other exceptional situations
  7. (Bonus Universe Imploding Goal!) Give at least one person $100 for failing one of my goals
 If I succeed in meeting all my goals (which, hopefully, I will) then we will all rejoice together!  But if in 365 days Savannah decides that I failed at the goal you chose, I will mail you a check for $100.  This should be good motivation for me to meet my goals, but who knows, maybe next year I will be $600 poorer.
