Goals for 2012

For most people, the beginning of a new year seems like the perfect time to set some goals for the year to come, and I am no different. This year is sure to bring a multitude of changes in my life, especially in the way of graduating from seminary. After 4 hard years of academic toil, I will finally finish school and officially have my Master of Divinity degree. So to prepare for a year of changes, I am committing to a number of resolutions that I hope will help round me into a more complete and healthy person. Without further ado, here are my goals for 2012 (some are things Mandy and I are going to do together):
  • Read 12 books in addition to my school books (one per month) 
  • Learn Spanish (definitely won't be fluent, but I'd like to speak and understand pretty well)
  • Read through the entire Bible in a year (I'm someone who needs rhythm and regularity, so hopefully following a plan will help me in this effort)
  • Run once per week (I stay active through mountain biking and rock climbing, but neither of these really help me stay in shape--hence, the running)
  • Have people over to our apartment for dinner or fellowship once a week
  • Do a fun activity in Seattle once a month
Hopefully I can stick to most of these goals over the next 366 days (leap year!). What are your goals for the year?
