So I sort of dropped off the blogosphere for a while. Not surprising with end of semester exams and some drama in my personal life. But I’m back, and nothing’s gonna stop me from accomplishing my goals this year. Hell, I got my Master’s degree last semester, despite everything.
So I humbly present my resolutions for 2011. There are 6, so I can spend 2 months on each one. I figure if I make them smaller and more manageable, maybe I’ll accomplish more of them. So, here’s the list:
- Eat more healthy meals at home.
- Start an exercise program.
- Learn about real food, and making more things from scratch.
- Develop a regular time for craft projects.
- Better Halloween costume/party.
- Pick up piano practice again.
Also along the way, I’ll be doing things that I don’t want to wait to do, or things that should be part of my daily/weekly routines anyway. The Getting Things Done system worked really well last semester, so that will be reinstated for this semester. Zazen is a must, as always. And I’m hoping to make time for a fun reading habit, at least a few nights a week. A book a month might be nice. I’m also hoping to get my finances more in order. I’m not exactly irresponsible with my money, but I’m not as responsible as I could be, and with the prospect of Andrew leaving in the next year, I feel I need to get things in better order.
In other news, I have a new phone! (New to me anyway.) I have finally joined the smartphone generation. And all while still on my cheap prepaid plan. Merry Christmas to me. Now let’s get 2011 started!
