January

Things I've done this month:

Read eleven books
Become a member of the Museum of Fine Arts
Hiked around Arnold Arboretum
Had Boston Cream Pie from the place it originated
Survived and shoveled through my first blizzard (nor'easter)
Given a 10 minute talk in Chinese
Set a goal for the year


Things I haven't done:
Written any stories
Played an Instrument
Studied Chinese or Japanese
Opened a textbook


I'm not sure where that puts me.  But I'm not regretting it.

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

My roommates and I started a quote wall and it seems I run circles around my roommates when it comes to saying funny things.  Except, rereading them all, I'm realizing, I'm not funny so much as I am awkward and kind of ditzy-sounding.  

"My facebook doesn't know who I am"
"I need to get all my geese in a row" 

I try to tell stories and it's like I'm a stand-up comedian but I don't get my own jokes.
