Do you make goals for yourself?

I got married young and dropped out of college so I didn't get a degree. Right now, I don't have the time or money to go back to school but I have this undying (if thats a word) lol.. urge to do something with myself. I've been unhappy with just working, taking care of my kids and cleaning and cooking so I made a goal list of things I hope to accomplish in one year. Things like, learning to speak spanish, learning how to knit and ballroom dance. I even want to learn sign language and I gave myself a deadline. No, I don't expect to be perfect at any of those things in just one year but at least know a little about all of them. Is that weird? Does anyone else do this?
