2. Spend at least 30 min 3x a week with running shoes on (bonus points if I'm working out during this time).

2. Watch a marathon on TV.
3. Move to Las Vegas and outbid Barry on a locker full of mementos and vintage instruments, causing him to fall madly in love with me. Hoard these items and accumulate further useless junk so that we can be featured together on an episode of Hoarders.
