  5. Transform a dusty bachelor pad into a cozy home.
  6. Read Real Food (Nina Planck), The Story of Tibet (Thomas Laird), The Swan Thieves (Elizabeth Kostova), Taking the Leap (Pema Chodron), The Subtle Power of Spiritual Abuse (David Johnson, Jeff Van Vonderen), and A People’s History of the United States (Howard Zinn), just for starters.
  7. Complete a Spanish language refresher course because you really do lose 6 years of Spanish coursework if you don’t use it.
  8. Make soap from scratch.
  9. Take pictures for myself.
  10. Learn to hold a headstand straight.
