Setting goals

Setting goals goes along with being organized!
Recently, my friend Corinna and I spent an afternoon at Barnes and Noble, writing our goals...HOWEVER...it was all FOR FUN!!!
We both love to write so we challenged each other to writing our goals using only one letter! Corinna chose "C" and called hers "Corinna's Challenges!" I chose the letter "F" and mine goes as follows...!!!
I do not know if this will all fit so I may have to use 2 or 3 threads...
