68. See All Seven Wonders of the World

Upon extensive research (i.e. typing 7 Wonders of the World into Google yesterday), there are (at least) two sets of the Seven Wonders of the World: the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the Modern Seven Wonders of the World.  For this goal, we're talking about the Modern World, partly because no one has ever...

1. Be a Contestant on Jeopardy

"Being a nerd really pays off sometimes." - Ken Jennings, 74 time Jeopardy winner. I love Jeopardy!.  No, I am not a grumpy geriatric, but I do like trivia and cursing out contestants for wrong answers. ("C'mon, Susan! You're a librarian from Wisconsin, how did you not know the answer was Wuthering Heights?")  I love... Continue Reading →

4. Visit all 196 Countries

In the spirit of the 4th of July (US Independence Day), this post is about all the other places I would like to go.  Someday, I would like to travel to every country and territory in the world.  I saw this video of Cassie DePecol, who not only went to every country in the world,...

103. Become a True New Yorker

August will mark 4 years of living in New York.  I moved out here right after college and have been here ever since.  A year in New York is like a lifetime anywhere else, so I FEEL like a real New Yorker, even though I have been told repeatedly that I am not.  I have... Continue Reading →

39. Read at Least 52 Books in a Year

I've been a lazy reader in the past year or so.  A coworker asked me a few weeks ago what I was reading, and I told him Keith Richards' autobiography, "Life".  That was mostly a lie.  I hadn't actually picked up the book in over a month, (maybe 3, because honesty).  I took this chat as...
