My Golden Year

I've got some goals for this next year. I intend on making 27 a fantastic year. My life has been blessed thus far, but I've got some personal goals that I'd really like to meet (or exceed) during this, my Golden Year. Wikipedia defines the Golden Year as:


One's golden birthday, also called a champagne birthday, is the day when the age someone turns is the same as the day in the month he or she was born. (for example, someone turning 26 on December 26 celebrates his or her golden birthday).

The following goals are those for my 27th year of life.

  • Complete the Marine Corps Marathon
  • Complete graduate school (MBA program)
  • Travel Overseas (Mexico and Canada are no longer counting as "out of country")
  • Gain credibility in my position at work
  • Participate in the Patuxent River Mini-Triathalon
  • Repair relationship with stepmother without being submissive
  • Begin and maintain a healthier, more active lifestyle. I'm sure not getting any younger!
  • Earn the respect of co-workers and peers
  • Work to the potential I am capable
  • Ease up on myself-I'm only human and I'm bound to not be perfect. In fact, that's in my description
  • Build a better relationship with my religion and beliefs
  • Create a mission statement and vision
  • Be my authentic and true self

So Happy Birthday to me (Do I owe Michael Jackson royalties for that?) and I have a lot to do in this year. I'm definitely "In Repair" as the John Mayer song so eloqouently describes.

Never knew about the golden year thing. Mine would have been when I was 10, and I can't remember anything fabulous happening that year.
Anyway, happy birthday!!

Marc is spelled with a "c!" Come on!! That's unique, right? At least it's obscure enough that I can never get one of those dumb personalized keychains with my name on them.

If you'll recall, at Sea World San Diego they had "Marc" license plates and not "Kate" ones. I believe you said they probably messed up the "Marco" plates, but still...guys with boring names!!!

You're batting .500 on weird name/boring name girls. Well, only b/c one of them made up her own name to be cool. LAME!!

One last thing. Marc isn't unique. However, I am proud of your dad for sticking up to your mother and letting her have that "c" as opposed to naming you Northern, as she wanted to. That's damned toilet paper!
