Resolutions

I know resolutions are tripe (not so much a sheep's stomach as a portmanteau of trite and trope), but I still believe in them as a thing to strive for, a little layout of the year to come, something to guide me into a better year ahead.

I say little, but I usually make a lot of resolutions (last year, I had 40, but I'm parring down this year), so here it goes!

Health (because let's face it, health almost always comes first, in life, and in resolutions)
1.  Get back into regular exercise, via Nerd Fitness Academy
2.  Start Soylent again (this will start in February, if all goes according to plan)
3.  Start running again, via Zombies Run!
4.  Move on from those who have hurt me.
5.  Reconnect with real-life people.
6.  Use the sun lamp when needed.

Brains
1.  Practice violin every day.
2.  Complete Goodreads challenge.
3.  Read 1 French novel (preferably the one I have with the audiobook version).
4.  Read the stories discussed in HP Podcraft (and other literary podcasts)
5.  Learn how to make a Wordpress site.
6.  Write something meaningful (hopefully on the wordpress site)

Art
1.  Finish 2 comics (at least)
2.  Keep up with the monthly scene-changes for my BJD (which you can see on my Instagram)
3.  Make at least 5 woodwork projects
4.  Cast frame moulds (and other things)
5.  Paint and Sculpt
6.  More marker portraits


I think 18 is a good place to stop.

I hope you'll post about how you're liking Nerd Fitness Academy! It looks like the kind of thing I'd like, but don't want to lay out the $99 at the moment. Happy New Year :)

It's fantastic! I signed up a while ago, for the exercise routines (they are very detailed), and more recipes. But their free site is really great, too! Lots of good, no-bullshit articles. I signed up for their mailing list, and they DON'T bombard you with daily or even weekly emails (I mean, probably at the very beginning they do, just for the basic New person stuff, but they're not like SparkPeople who annoy the crap out of me with their weekly and somewhat useless & repetitive emails).

Wordpress is super-easy. Even I can manage it, and I'm rubbish at that sort of thing.

Good luck with your resolutions!

I'll be coming to you when I get stuck ;)
I've decided to separate my old handle from my name after all, so I'll be working on one soon, I hope.

I'm hoping they'll be mostly comics!
