30 Post Challenge #1

I always hate to rush into blogging again after posting my Christmas Card, because I like having it at the top of my blog when people come to visit, but at this point I imagine that anyone who wanted to see it has seen it, and the ones who have come back are probably tired of seeing it at this point. :)

Anyway, I feel like this blog has become mainly a collection of photos from when I go somewhere, and don't get me wrong, I really like that aspect of it.  But I also want to do a little more with it. What kind of more? I'm not entirely sure, but I thought it might be good to just do some writing here from time to time.  I sometimes see people doing "30 Day Challenges" or something like that, and I don't really feel like I need to write for 30 days straight, but think it might be fun to find some writing prompts from some of those and maybe shoot for 30 days of essays over the course of some larger number of days. :) This site has a bunch of prompts that I thought were interesting to think about, so I'm going to start with that list and work my way down. So without further ado:

#1: Something you're looking forward to this year

Right off the bat, this seems harder than it ought to be.  Having finished school and being in a job that's fairly stable, there generally aren't any big things to look forward to these days.  I mean, sure I'd love to look forward to falling in love and getting married this year, but I guess that I feel like there's things you hope for, but they don't really count as things to look forward to, per se.  And a year is a long time to be looking forward to anyway.  I really haven't done much planning past the next couple months.

All that said, there are a number of things that I'm looking forward to this year:

-Going to visit Julie in Arizona in February (good company AND good weather)
-George's family coming to visit sometime
-Seeing Wicked in August
-Getting my knee better again and getting back to non-bike exercising (my tailbone is not a big fan of riding the bike)

I'm sure I could come up with other things, but I'm feeling like these don't HAVE to be super long essays, so I'm just going to leave it like that.
