I guess it’s that time of year where I’m supposed to do round-ups and all that good stuff, but I already did here, and, well, I haven’t done anything but work since then.
So, instead of another round-up, I’ll share plans and goals and stuff for 2016!
Of course, I leave for nine weeks in Taiwan and the Philippines this week! I sat down and made myself some goals for this year. They’re nothing crazy, but I’m still excited for the year ahead!
I still haven’t seen all that much of the US, so I want to visit more National Parks. I still have my pass from last year. It’s the perfect opportunity to take advantage of that. I would like to go to five new ones this year and maybe return to some that I went to last year.
Speaking of National Parks, I want to hike Angels Landing at Zion. I wanted to last year, but it didn’t work out, so this year I would really love to.
I would also like to go back to the Grand Canyon, maybe to the north rim this time, or west. Or maybe go in it. All of those sound like something I want to do.
This seems like a year of trying things again. I went stand up paddle boarding last year on Little Corn Island and really didn’t like it. Why do I want to do it again you ask? Because I want to like it. I figure I’ll try it again somewhere new and hope for the best!
I also want to kayak more this year. I like kayaking. It’s one of the few water activities I enjoy.
Another thing I wouldn’t totally hate doing again is going to Guatemala. I love Guatemala. I want to go back. I look at airfare there a lot, but never book anything. There’s so much I didn’t see there!
I want to start writing more regularly, too. Not just on here, but anything. Just write and see what happens.
And of course, go snorkeling. I successfully avoided it in my two and a half months in Central America, which I was actually a little surprised about. But, someday I want to SCUBA dive, and I think this is the first step for me to work towards that. I need to hate you less, water!
One last thing, I want to see my friends more. We’re all so spread out at this point that I never see anyone anymore. I want to change that and see them at least once. That would be nice.
Have you done any of these things? What are your goals for 2016?
