So this is my blog. Apparently, the first few blog entries are always horribly awkward. Or else I'm really bad at blogging and totally not as charming and witty as I think I am.

...I'm gonna go with the former.

Okay, so why this blog? And why this name?

The second question is a bit easier, and it leads into the first. I love elephants, I love Spanish, and this blog is (hopefully) meant to be a teeny corner of the world where I can share my mini-triumphs and lots of random thoughts. Hence... "Elefantitas Alegres," or "Happy Little Elephants." These mini-triumphs I speak of are my 101 goals to be completed in 1001 days. They are listed on the side bar to your right. I heard about this project last week and thought that this time in my life, with so many exciting and scary and wonderful changes about to occur, would be a perfect time to start. Plus, making a list of 101 Goals was so much more fun than learning what the hell an Interpleader Suit entails.

So far I only have 88 Goals... its tough work being so introspective! Although, I almost feel like I am cheating... "Get monthly facials before wedding" will certainly be very taxing, but I think I'm up for the challenge. I'm also not sure if all this exotic traveling I seem to be doing in the next 3ish years is going to jive well with Financial Goal #1 - "pay off credit card debt." Oh well - can't make it too easy on myself. That just wouldn't be any fun.
