Resolutions for 2014

| Comments

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.
