Today's Prompt:

What 12 new things do you want to do/accomplish in 2012?

Pencil sketch of those macarons I'm going to make.

  1. Run a half Iron Man
  2. Run a half marathon in 2:11 (10 minute miles), my most recent attempt was 2:13
  3. Run a full marathon in 4:45 (I never said I was a fast runner), so far, my fastest is 5:01
  4. Complete my ARE (architect's registration exam), 2 out of 7 exams passed
  5. Make croissants from scratch, tried and they were bad, must try again

  25. Make 2 new dresses
