Is there something (a person, a cause, an idea) that you want to investigate more fully in 2009?

I want to learn more about yoga and pilates. I need to work on my body more - I was getting there but fell off the wagon. I'd also like to start cooking more. I think it will help me save money if I make the things I love more.

I want to get more involved in my community. I want to start mentoring and build up my role as an adviser.

I want to investigate the future of socializing in America and in the world at large as a result of the Age of Ubiquitous Over-Information. I want to inspire others to return to a more personalized, human approach to experiencing the world, while still utilizing the benefits available to us via instant, global communication.

I want to overhaul the entire way I live, to render it more active and engaged with others. From there, I believe, other changes and questions will come.

I want 2009 to be about sewing. Learning my machine, making clothes for myself and the kiddo and even designing things. I want to make handbags and design one of a kind fashion for myself. I have such a specific style that I want to be able to make the kind of clothes I want to wear.

Self in relationship. I have not achieved balance yet. I wonder what that feels like.

I want to investigate "green" alternatives to my current use of materials / energy / food / transportation, etc. I also want to investigate elder care issues, to make sure my almost 96-year old mother is safe while she continues to live alone and, if/when the time comes that she needs more looking-after, is adequately cared-for.

The only thing that I feel right now that I want to investigate that is somewhat "new" is how to deal with my eating disorder, now that I have admitted that I have one. I want to find out more about it and what I can do about it with and without my therapist.

I'd love to be able to investigate the causes of poverty in the Philippines and to possibly think of an innovative solution that will be able to help even just one underprivileged sector of society.

Economics. Back to basics, really learn them, be able to talk about them.

Architecture for Humanity. I'd like to work for them or even just adopt their ideals and ideas. I'd love to develop skills that would help me in working for organizations like Architecture for Humanity, habitat for humanity, or any organization like that. I can't picture myself being an architect for the rest of my life designing homes and buildings for people who have money. I'd like to use my skills to benefit those who actually need it. I need to figure out how to change the world 8 hours a day at at time.

I'd certainly like to be more civically active and in part that means donating more of my time to the communities around me. I'd also like to get a little more involved in gay rights and the gay community.

I would really love to seriously entrench myself in the history of midwifery. It's something I truly love and am wildly passionate about so i would love to be equally as knowledgeable about it.

Having a baby at 40! Buying a home in Israel! Getting my driving licence in Israel and buying a car - and not being afraid to drive in Israel! Starting a garden. Planting window boxes and planters and GROWING THINGS.

Yes, my so-called girl friend. I can’t really understand her.

I want to know more about Trinidad, I feel bad as a Trinidadian not knowing as much as I know about America.

I'd like to get settled on the kind of Jewish education we're going to be providing our children -- and begin to provide it. A big part of doing that will require Joe and I to think a lot about our own feelings about Judaism (in its more organized aspects) and about how we want to indulge or ignore or overcome those feelings for the benefit of Ari and his brother/sister.

Alzheimer care, because I am a caregiver for my mom who has Alzheimers…

How to function as my own person after being without a partner for the first time in the past 3 years, since I was 15. To find out more about who I am and where I'm going as an individual.
