I Fail at New Year's Resolutions

| Comments

So as it turns out, like many of us, I fail at my New Year’s resolutions. Looking back, I intended to do a few things. Let’s see where I’m at.

  • Blog more. Uh, yeah, my last post was back on March 7, 2014. FAIL

    I am fixing this today, sort of, by blogging about it. How meta.

  • Journal more. I was doing good for a while, but dropped off the daily journal thing back in June. FAIL

    I still have my lifeblog thing that is all automated so my tweets and other nonsense go to my journal, but my actual private thoughts are something I need to get back to capturing. I did notice it helped me write when I was doing it on a regular basis.

  • Lose a couple of tons. Yeah, right. At least I haven’t gotten fatter. FAIL

    I like my Mexican Coca-Cola, rum, and bagels with Nutella too much, apparently.

  • Find my patience. I think that I’ve made a small amount of headway in this department. I have to find more of it, though. MARGINAL

    I’ve noticed that regular massage therapy helps, believe it or not. Another silly yet good stress relief is to roll the windows down, open the sunroof, and do some car karaoke on the way home. Goofy, but works.

  • Write more. I haven’t blogged, but I’ve done a fair amount of writing for Linux Journal this year. That feels good. SUCCESS

    Keep it up, nimrod.

  • Have more fun. Yeah. There’s a blog post about exactly that brewing in my noodle as I type this.

    See upcoming post on this topic.

More to come…
