Give Me Five hopes or goals you have for the new year!

1. Read the whole Bible in a year. I have a schedule of daily bible reading printed out. I planned to post my progress weekly to remind myself where I stand as to following the schedule. To be realistic, I am not always healthy and in the mood. So I do need to pace myself differently if I want to make this project successful. So far today is 8th January and I have covered:
  • Genesis chapters 1-18
  • Malachi chapters 1-4
  • Matthew chapters 1-6
  • 1 John chapters 1-5
  • 2 John, 3 John, Jude
2. Finish a book a week. As you can see, I am also serious about this project and I have posted the books at the side bar on the right and my library is at the bottom of the blog. This first week I am reading A Cup of Comfort for Sisters and Lists to Live By. I am only half way through with the first book and just only browse through the second book. I need to work harder on this.

3. Third goal is to lose weight - about 15kg. Hmm...I haven't set anything up for this project and one week is already gone in 2008 already. I will set up an account with those weight lose sites. Get a counter to check my weight and write down my progress or otherwise.

4. Learn about technology. I am getting magazines about the latest gadgets such as mobile phones and laptops or UMPC (ultra mobile PC) available and will try to post more about what I gather later in my posts.

5. Learn to cook. Sigh...this is not something that I enjoy though eating is a different story. But I will try.


  1. Hey Serena!!! These are some big goals, but I know you can do it. There are alot of lists for different ways to finish the bible in a year. I think it's a bit much to read everyday, but that's one of my goals, to read more. I have a stack of books just sitting there ready for me to read...we'll see how many I finish LOL
    Also don't forget to please add a link back to the original GM5 post for this week with "BeccA's Buzz" or something as the link text. Thanks!!!

  2. Incredible list! I think you have at least two there that compliment each other very well. The losing weight and learning to cook! :) You can learn to cook foods/dishes that will help you in your weight loss! :) Good luck!

  3. Great list! I should have #5 on my list too - I need to learn to be a better cook.

    Good luck on obtaining these goals and hopes.

  4. Good luck with those lofty goals, Serena! You'll do it, I know you will!
