Posted:Yeahhhhh, I love these threads... Another year, more goals, more awesomeness...

I was gently surprised by my goals last year, the completion and nature of them. This year, more solid goals:

1) Keep doing this stuff for another year without getting a real job.
2) Do not destroy my fire troupe.
3) Do the choreography and dance things.
4) Do the Hundreds. All of them, on video.
5) Try and do 1000 Matrixies for Children in Need.
6) Try and do something for the Fringe, indoors.
7) More floorwork.
8) Get some silly leg stuff solid.
9) Make a CJ routine
10) Make the post modern staffs.
11) Make the amazing machines routine... Damnit!

That sounds like a good lot of goals. Now I have to go and work on some stuff before 2010 rolls around...
