What I (didn’t) accomplish during my month at home

8 Jan

I’m back at school and reflecting on all the stuff I didn’t get done over the holidays. I had an ambitious list, 95% of which didn’t get touched.

What I should have done but didn’t

  • Get in touch with the librarians I know in Salt Lake
  • Go to the dentist
  • Get a haircut
  • Order new glasses
  • Get an oil change
  • Rotate my tires
  • Read my January book club book
  • Update my resume
  • Apply for jobs
  • Post on the blog
  • Send Christmas emails to friends

What I actually did

  • Watched all 6 1/2 seasons of How I Met Your Mother
  • Got Molly married (and all the many other tasks associated with the event)
  • Ate a cake shaped like a penis
  • Dined at 13 different restaurants that are Utah/America specific
  • Gained 5 pounds
  • Bought new jeans, rain boots and many other misc. items from various after Christmas sales
  • Got sick
  • Rode the Fun Bus to Wendover for the first time
  • Visited the new Natural History Museum
  • Slept
  • Learned how to give a lap dance from Carmen Electra
  • Watched Park City firefighters take it off and shake it like wanna be white-boy strippers circa 1996
  • Was serenaded by Air Supply
  • Consumed about 3 pounds of cheese
  • Attended midnight mass with a great friend

All in all, I think it was a pretty successful winter break.
