20+10 for 2010....x 2

I'll be blunt, I'm lousy at New Year's Resolutions. Though I think we all pilfered that quest as soon as it was invented, I think I might try a check-list to complete throughout the year, rather than doing it all at once :) I have no clue whether or not it'll actually get done, but as I've heard, "If you aim for nothing, you'll get it."

I was going to only list 30, I could only THINK of 30 things. But then more started coming, and I just figured...I'll do 30 times 2, lol, why not.
