DING DING DING! BONK! Predictions & Resolutions



As per my yearly predictions and resolution list, here’s the 2013 recap:
Predictions
George Bush senior will die from pneumonia brought on by bronchitis.  – BONK!!! George Dubya Senior is still alive and well.

Commercial fishing will see a decrease in fish bagged (particularly the tuna industry). – Couldn’t find any results for this yet as it seems like reports are not out. So we’ll just say it’s a BONK!!!

A series of tornadoes will hit the south (particularly Alabama and Tennessee) causing cities to be without power for up to a week. – DING DING DING http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2013/12/21/tornado-ark-weather-tenn/4161975/

There will be a direct correlation between the less ammo available for sale and the higher the gas prices will be. – BONK!!! Inconclusive.

Justin Bieber will be involved in a sex tape scandal. Local DJs will talk about it on morning shows and refer to it as the "Baby, Baby, Baby, O-Face Baby" tape. – While Bieber has claimed he is going to retire, then not, but actually he is totally serious about it, but not really, somehow a sex tape scandal has not happened… yet.

To-Do List
Red Nose Half Marathon - DONE
Columbus RoadRunners 5k - DONE
Super Bowl 10K – NOT DONE, did 5K instead
Furry 5K – DONE at the speed of pug!
Publix Marathon (half) Atlanta – NOT DONE, had bacterial infection in lungs that week
Turkey hunt – NOT DONE again
Camp over the summer – NOT DONE
Hog hunt – DONE, kinda. I went for deer and heard some hogs but never saw them.
Deer hunt - DONE
Lose 10 lbs and keep it off – NOT DONE. Did my first Whole 30 and lost 10 lbs but gained it all back
Take general ed classes - DONE
Try to get into CSU - DONE
Learn something new – DONE learned LOTS of things new!
Actually give up something for the duration of Lent and stick to it – DONE  I gave my time and effort by doing charity miles. Instead of doing something that would change me, I did something that would change others by giving time I would have used for other stuff to walk, run, bike, anything that would add up mileage for various charities. It was my most successful lent ever and I plan on doing it again.

Now for 2014 predictions and resolutions:
Southern California will be hit with another earthquake around the 20th anniversary of the Northridge Quake.
Scientists will finally capture images of a rare deep sea fish in action during breeding.

Resolutions
Run another ultra marathon
Run more trail races
Go to the gym more
Do WHOLE30 twice a year (January and again in June)
Make a painting for the living room
Get something done on the house (paint, tile, anything!)
