1) Don't buy any more magic for the summer (except Smoke and Mirror cards)
2) Get my Dangerous dvd. (Like the other guy said waiting on the mail)
3) Learn flourishes
4)Get the Hot Shot Cut down. (Yes I can't do it yet and have been practicing for a while now)
5)Start reading for Senior Projects (I hate school)
6)Perform for others MORE.

I don't tan. I turn red. :/

1) Become proficient at flourishing.
2) Create another effect or two with cards.
3) Start getting involved with the USMC again. Stupid sickness+work.

That's all I got.

-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...

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.

Perhaps a bit ambitious, but by September I plan to have done the following:

-Woodshed, woodshed, woodshed until various new effects/sleights are as natural as breathing
-Finish designing 3 separate walkaround routines (of 3 effects each)
-Dry run these routines at my girlfriend's birthday party (3 weeks from now)
-Pitch myself as a walkaround guy to my boss (I work at a hotel, we have an on-site restaurant)
-Demo these routines for Boss, Back Office Team, & Hotel Owners at a Pitch Lunch
-Start the process of doing walkaround at our hotel restaurant
