This reminds me, I still need to get and read books 3 and 4 of the Twilight series.

I will hope that you do find the job you want in 2009! I know how it feels when you are not really fulfilled with your job.

Have a good week! :)

This is a good list to do every year! It probably helps to look back at each year and see where you want to be in the present year.

Can I borrow this list for my blog? I think it is a great list.
