I had a friend once that suggested I make a list of goals for myself. Long term, short term, and in between. It's not a bad idea. Yesterday, I discovered I have a new goal: to get myself a toaster with a timer that actually works and will not set my bread on fire. Admirable goal, I think. Despite leaving my windows open all day and the fan blowing, it still reeks of smoke in here. However, I also think I might be a rare person that has tinted windows on the toaster!
