- Get something published or try with at least three seperate papers. (First one now in planning sessions, thanks to unreason, korgmeister, and capfox for offering to help with that).
- Start tracking my finances effectively. Probably with MS Money or Quicken.
- Get to China for the first time by the end of the year.
- Try a Chinese language class, probably at a community college.
I've got some ambitions relating to work, but I'm not that well positioned to do real planning in that regard. If I can do all four of those, I think this will be a pretty effective building year. I've no idea if I can actually get published this year, but it's damn well time I start putting a lot of effort into it. I'm in this for the glory, not the fortune, after all. (Although my visions of glory are likely somewhat deluded.)
