In the next 1-4 months I get to spend most of my time in Israel! Would you believe it?
(Sometime in that period of time I will know if I move abroad permanently or start working in Israel full time.
...Which means my evenings and weekends are free.
Other than resting - a lot, I have plans.

Aside to catching up on TV shows, watching some of my old time favorites, and investing in my friends...
With an over-reaching goal for 4 months from now, and milestones every month, my goals are, by categories:
