Did I Accomplish My 2014 New Years Goals?

As 2014 winds down, with The Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy Channel playing in the background, I thought I would check back on my 2014 Goals. Here is what I have done, what I have not done, and if not done will be placed on the 2015 Goals list.

Attempt to go to bed every night at 11pm and wake up at 6am every day. (Yeah...this sort of happened...not every day though)
Laugh at myself more often. Stop taking everything so seriously. (Another thing I need to work on.)
Save up enough money for either an iPad or a Alexander McQueen scarf for my birthday. Birthday passed. Didn’t get either. Its all good.
Participate in a Photo 365 Project on Facebook. (Granted I would forget and not post on the particular day but I did it.)
Write more in a journal. (Did this too. Not as much as I should have, but again something to work on.)
Try a yoga class. If I like it, will continue. If not, that is okay. (Nope. Didn't even attempt. Will not add to 2015 goals list)
Take a class at Havens Kitchen (Something else I did not attempt as their classes are expensive and I did not want to go by myself.)
Experience one of the Side Tours in NYC. (Same reason as the Havens Kitchen reason)
Ask everyday on Facebook before I go to bed “So what was the best part of your day?” Keep a log of the best responses for a new blog feature. (I did this for a while but it did not catch on. Oh well.)
At end of my workday, write down three positive events/what I am grateful for. (For whatever particular reason, I stopped doing this. I do not know why. I will start this up again.)
Walk across and back over the Brooklyn Bridge. (Again, I always write this and NEVER DO IT because of the fear of doing it alone.)
Read a fact a day from Love, Sex, Death, and Words by John Sutherland (The facts got somewhat boring but I think I will start this up again.)
Continue to study French, even if I am not taking classes at FIAF.
