Try Flotation Therapy

I've been curious about this for some time because I thought it might be a good way to alleviate my pain and shut off my brain for an hour. Unfortunately, that didn't work out. I got hot and motion sick almost immediately. My appointment was for an hour, but I ended up getting out after about 15-20 minutes because I thought I was going to throw up. <sad trombone >

I think if I stayed the whole hour, it could've been transformative, but despite my experience, I still highly recommend others try it, and if you're in Chicago, go to Float Sixty. The staff is extremely helpful and caring.

Complete an AMA on Reddit

Zak and Rich look at reddit all the time. I didn't even really know what it was, but one night, Rich was looking at one of their "Ask Me Anything" threads, and I was intrigued. I thought, "I could do that." So I did. It was pretty fun too.

Get a Reflexology Treatment

I wasn't sure if I was going to count this or not, but in the end, I decided to. Technically what I received was not a reflexology treatment, but since all of the "reflexology" places in town are the same concept, I feel like it qualifies to fulfill this goal. And I did get my feet rubbed. And it felt damn good.

Prep 20 Instructor Files

I really wasn't expecting to already be done with this goal. It seem like I'm averaging almost three files per month now, and that average is definitely going to increase after November. Especially since I have 10 files to prep over the course of the next two months. Maybe I'll get a break in January...

Earn Sephora VIB Rouge Status

I love makeup, and I love Sephora. I'm pretty much obsessed with the place. I know it's silly, but I guess it's my one true vice. And there are much worse.

I've been a member of their VIB loyalty program for a few years now, and one day I saw they have a higher tier than where I was. Naturally, I wanted to be on that level. It's completely irrational. I recognize this. But I wanted it anyway. So I spent a bazillion dollars at Sephora this year, and now I have VIB Rouge status through December 2015. If it never happens again, that's ok, but at least I have it for this one year.

Watch Each Film Nominated for Best Picture from My Birth Year

This goal was both interesting and boring. It's truly amazing how many advancements we've made in the film industry over the last 30+ years. Of the films on the list, there was only one I didn't like, which is "Midnight Express." I think it was nominated due to the subject matter and perhaps some of the cinematography, but certainly not because of the acting, editing, or writing. The other films nominated that year were all much, much better in all aspects. You can see the complete list here.
