I Take Pride in Minor Accomplishments: Top 19 Highlights from 2019

In college, some friends of mine started a Facebook group called ‘I Take Pride in Minor Accomplishments’ so here’s a look at what I’ve done this year. I’m just being silly with the title, I know I had a good year and 2020 is going to be better.   

  • Settled into new position at UW Oshkosh
  • Went to EAA AirVenture
  • Started counting my carbs on Nov. 11, 2019
  • Began experimenting with intermittent fasting
  • Doubled ‘Likes’ for @UWOOnlineDegrees Facebook page
  • Created two videos for UW Oshkosh OCE YouTube channel
  • Completed Sober October
  • Found a gym I like in Oshkosh
  • Covered UW Oshkosh Discover Firefighting Academy in July
  • Cut the Cord: Eliminated cable TV and the bill that went with it
  • Reconnected with friends during late summer trip to Salt Lake City
  • Went to Lil’ Wayne and Blink 182 concert in Salt Lake City
  • Covered two commencement ceremonies at UW Oshkosh
  • Attended Utah at BYU football game
  • Attended WIAA State Boy’s Basketball Tournament
  • Attended Michigan at Wisconsin football game
  • Went to Wisconsin Timber Rattlers game
  • Attended Green Bay Packers’ Family Night at Lambeau Field
  • Finally watched Breaking Bad

Looking ahead, here are the 2020 New Year’s Resolutions. See my previous two posts for two additional resolutions:

  • Go to the gym five times per week
  • No soda
  • Track all food and exercise
  • Five minutes of meditation every day
  • Eat less than 150 carbs per day
