My Year of 25 Things

I'm 25 today!  In the new year I had the desire for goals.  It seems like last year I didn't have a single personal goal since we were mostly just focused on getting a job, and while a lot of things got done, I wanted to have goals for this year.  Turning 25 jump started me on writing my goals down, so for The Year of 25 Things, the list is below.  Some things like have the baby, and go swimming, are givens on what will happen in year-25, which doesn't really make them goals, so I didn't put them on here.  When I accomplish any of them, I'll post about doing them.  For my birthday I received the Porter Rockwell book from my sister-in-law, Kim, so I'm starting that today!
