My New Year’s Resolution is going to be 1920x1200. Widescreen is best.
OK, outside of the geeky joke – it’s a new year, and with a new year comes new promises that I can make, break, and then guilt myself over. I’m good for about two weeks then I fall apart like a house of cards being sprayed with a firehose, but this year, it’s going to be different, dammit. I’m going to CHANGE! cough
So, without further flimflammery, here’s the list of crap that I intend to do this year, in no particular order:
Blog more. I have been hit and miss on blogging all year long, so I want to write at least one blog post a week. That’s 52 in a year. I can do that. I just need to be consistent and not lazy.
Journal more. I’ve got some amazingly cool journalling tools that I’ve got setup to do all kinds of things, and aside from automated snarfing of my social feeds I don’t do much independent journalling. This will happen daily - it’s easy enough to do, I just need to do it.
Lose a couple of tons. I’d lost 20 pounds back in August, but most of that was due to having pneumonia. I’ve put 10 of that back on - I need to get back a healthier bandwagon.
Find my patience. I used to be a lot more mellow than I am today. I need to recover my mellow. Part of me wants to blame others for damaging my calm, but I know that I can maintain a mellow despite any ruckus that may be cycloning around me.
Write more. I submitted four articles for Linux Journal this year, and that’s not nearly enough to make me “feel like a writer” these days.
Have more fun. 2013 was full of stress and angst on a few fronts, and I am not happy about that. 2014 is going to be better, because I’m going to make it better.
Come at me, 2014. I’m gonna kick your ass.
