Yeah, I'm going from the start of the year.  Consider this like a belated new year's resolution.

Hmm... I'll have to think on a list...

This'll be a work-in-progress, and I'm gonna skip video games, since I'm not much of a gamer, and only on PC when I do.

And I'll skip over those that I would see anyway, and aren't really on any 'list' of mine. Books in series I'm currently working through. Things like that. And keep to those that I have been meaning to tackle for several years now.

('Cause putting Star Wars on here would be cheating somehow hahha I think...

and otherwise I'd get to ten way before the end of the year).

 

 

Movies:

- Avatar [haven't yet seen it, been meaning to DVR it one of these days...]

- Punch Drunk Love [have seen but did not understand, want to give it another go]

- 28 Weeks Later [loved the first one, want to check out the sequel]

- the Godfather Part II and Part III [can't just stop at I, can I?]

- Three Colors: White [have seen red and blue of the trilogy already, but it's a foreign language film so might be hard to find]

- Congo [finally got a copy of the DVD]

-

 

Books:

- The Grapes of Wrath  [had to read it for a college lit. class but never finished, so it's been on my list every since to reread/finish it]

- Writer's Market Guide to Getting Published [got this for Christmas a couple years ago and haven't touched it]

-

I added some TV shows.  Don't really have a goal for them as of yet.  Also an ancillary goal is to get my Xbox gamer score to 35,000 (at just under 29,000 now).

I thought about doing TV shows as well... but it would be quite long haha.  (As in time-consuming)

Another goal I have is to 100% the achievements in at least one game.  Far Cry 3, Fallout Shelter, Mass Effect 2, and Batman: Arkham City are possibilities.

Good job!

Just update mine, I've really been slacking. I'm sure I have things to add to the list but I don't remember them, lol.
