Summer 2010 To-Do List: Weskimo Edition

May 8, 2010 Weskimo 4 Comments

Every year, I read Newbs’ list for the summer and think “none of that is going to happen…”  This time, something was different, though.  This year, I got some kind of seventeenth sense that some of it might actually get done!  I don’t know how, and for most of it, I most assuredly do not know why, but he’s going to do it!

This left me thinking, as I often do, of myself.  I also have goals for every summer, though never immortalized in list-form, I tend to have assorted vagaries and wispy notions floating around in my head that represent the list.  I don’t know if you folks have ever tried to accomplish a vagary before, but I’ll tell you, it’s still pretty damn vague when you’re done.  And you’re left with a confused feeling whenever you look back on the summer, wondering if you actually accomplished any of your lofty (if poorly defined) goals.

Well, no more! Behold! Concrete evidence of my goals this summer!  Take that, Weskimo’s directionally-challenged mind! Eat progress this summer!
