    That is a list I have never seen before! very interesting πŸ™‚
    I knew you had some background in economics but did not know you were that involved, very cool. Goodluck with them all (it would be neat to know someone winning a Nobel Prize)

    My goals for 2009 are to improve my time management skills, make the Dean’s list, be a better blogger.

    I’m sure you’d be among the finalists in American Idol for your presence :).

    Mine are more needs than resolutions:
    1. Pay off my debts
    2. lose weight [the opposite]
    3. Learn French seriously
    4. Move to another country for a while
    5. Compete and Win The Amazing Race [I love this, but I’m not american 😦 ]

    Happy 2009!

  • sugali says:

    I wish you all the success to accomplish your list. I hope you will. It will be so wonderful.
    Will you be competing for the American idol in 2009? Need to get ready to vote for you…

    Like everybody else, I want to pay off those debts.
    A couple of years ago, I stopped listing New Years resolutions. I might do it this coming year.

  • kanagu says:

    I am wishing you a very happy new year and success in all your activities πŸ™‚
    My resolutions are quite simple this year.. to learn a new language.. to go to some unseen places πŸ™‚

  • b* says:

    Every year, I say I won’t.
    And every year
    Of course I do.
    If I should lose the pounds on my list
    I hope they find their way
    To you.

    Happy New Year!

    Interesting resolutions! What a challenge.

    Mine? just to be happy and see the beauty in every day.

  • I’ve stopped making resolutions. Good luck with yours! Happy New Year! πŸ™‚

  • enreal says:

    Big goals! kudos for thinking this large… may all 10 things happen and more this year!

  • raiscaraavalon says:

    My main focus this year like everyone else is my finances. Paying off debt, increasing income, managing my money…the norm. I have several goals towards that, and I’m sure I’ll have several more. I’m excited to see where I end up this year. πŸ™‚

    At least I’m not the only one looking to gain weight this year. At least a few pounds would be nice.

  • Ayesha says:

    Interesting and ambitious! πŸ˜›

    I usually don’t make new year resolutions πŸ˜€

  • medaholic says:

    As for the monument. Usually someone else build’s it, you just pay for the name.

  • Logen says:

    Hi Leafless, all the best for the new year.
