    -Get down new effects to put in my regular repertuar:
    -3 Fly
    -CK Travelers routine
    -The Deep
    -Gravity Half Pass
    -Coin One
    -Ten City
    -Get a better handling for the visual change via Moving pips gimmick card
    -Have some girl fun :)
    -Meet a ton of new people
    -Get a good, natural patter!

    It gets updated every now and then.

    Already succeeded with these:
    -Missing Link
    -Get a good left hand classic palm
    -Perfect tying loops
    -Marked (My version, it's great :))
  12. -Get my routine down smooth
    -Do several live performances, as many as possible
    -Get my Cardistry smooth and generally improve... a lot :p
    -Get to the point where I feel confident enough in myself to buy the Trilogy

    The last one will be hardest...

  13. Get a video of a live performance (hopefully if things go right I'll have my friend film my the 15th-18th while I'm at some Camp)

    Get down the one-handed revolution and get down the Sybil at a descent speed.

    And finally, get descent with coin magic (I'm new to it, I know 2 false transfers and 2 palms, Bobos books is coming in this week)

    I am confident with completing all these except the OHR, I just can't get it better than slow.

  14. Odd not one mention this
    Get clip shift down at a decent speed
  15. Create my business card

    Shoot a dvd (we shoot in augest)

    See the dark night :)

    Get a paid show

    Keep a journal with everything magic related. Good impromptu tricks, books i need to read, a wishlist, things i need to practice, etc.
