The Year Of Doing Better
I had an evening of trying to get my anxiety ridden dog through the town's firework festivities (we haven't yet found anything that works on a consistent basis), followed by scrubbing vomit out of the rug when all our efforts failed.
Have I mentioned how much I love fireworks?
But it's all over now, the dog's still alive and my rug is clean again, as is my slate. A slightly convoluted segue but what else would you expect from the mind behind this blog?
As I mentioned yesterday, today I shall reveal the five major goals I am setting myself for the year 2013. And boy, are they going to look familiar. Here's hoping for a very productive 2013 if for no other reason than I'll get to write all brand new goals come 2014...
1. Publish Effigy
Every year I get a little bit closer. And I have every reason to believe that this year will be the year I actually make it happen.
2. Participate in NaNoWriMo 2013
This is, interestingly enough, the goal about which I am the least sure. But November just wouldn't seem like November to me anymore without this challenge so I'm going to sign up and see where the fates take me.
3. Be a better blogger
Last year, I ignored this blog quite a lot. This year I shall endeavor to do better. I resolve to post more regularly and to visit other blogs more regularly. I keep missing out on awesome stuff and I'm looking to stop that.
4. Walk, run or bike at least 500 miles
This goal is designed to make sure I at least make an attempt to be healthy and active.
It really needs to be done. And every year I get a little bit closer to being able to see the back of my closets. How in the world did I accumulate such... stuff? The bonus is, if I get rid of it, I'll have more room for books.
THAT'S GOING TO do it for me on this fine holiday. Did you set any goals/resolutions? Did you set a resolution and have already broken it? Did I ever tell you about that one year when I made a goal to eat more donuts? That was the one year when I accomplished every goal I set for myself. Maybe I should set that goal again...
Until next time...
