I turned 32 at the end of 2012. The following is a list of 32 short-term goals that I would like to accomplish during the upcoming year. This year will be tougher than most because I'm living in Tokyo.  (I don't speak Japanese, which makes it really tough to try new things while I'm here.)  When I complete a goal, I will link the list item to the related blog post and cross the item off of the following list.
