Spellbinding (or not so spellbinding) Lists

Here is a list.
It's a touch more morbid then the one I'm going to show you.
It still has significance.
Chose to think to the right, it's where you live, because truthfully, in all cliche honesty, living is much more spellbinding than dying.
And spellbinding is an amusing word.

It's 2010 and I welcome it with open arms, even if it didn't get off to the most productive start. Now is the time where most people would explain that they want to join a gym this year and that's the entirety of their new year's resolutions.That's not me. I need to plan out my entire year, what I'm going to do, how many times, etc. I need deadlines and I need to share it with someone. Which is where this *flaps around a bit* comes in. I never keep up with blogs. Ever. I sometimes make them and never make a mark in them. Poor things, rotting away, being filled with mildew and being chewed on by mice. A shame really.

As you can hopefully see, I have a bit...longer list, including keeping up with blog/art journal at least once a day. Yeah, /at least/. I spam. A lot. This list will be updated constantly throughout the year as I think of more things and I grow as a person.
