Well. What to say about 2011... It was a pretty rough year, honestly. I mean, I know I feel that way because of the whole "Kylie in the hospital" thing, but even beyond that it was... rough. Lots of things happened, lots of things changed. I had a bunch of Sad For No Reason times. It was rough.
But now let's review my resolutions from last year. Last year I resolved to sketch more, which was an overwhelming success. I am drawing more now than I have in years and I am loving it. I will continue to do this, but I don't think it really counts as a resolution anymore. Write more blog entries? Yeah, let's try that again. I did a pretty good job for the first two months of 2011, but I started to drop off again by March. Still, I totaled 175 entries, up from 144 in 2010. Cleaning all the things didn't go very well either, unfortunately. But I'll keep trying. I am not sure if I necessarily weigh less than I did last year, but I have certainly been more healthy. We have been eating better and I have been going to the gym. I feel better and I feel better about myself. Also, I haven't had nearly so much trouble breathing now that I have actually been giving my lungs a bit of a workout every now and then.
Okay, so I guess we'll call that minor success? On to my resolutions for this year:
1) Clean All The Things: this place is a mess and there's no reason for it. I will get into some sort of routine and I will keep my house clean so that I don't have to be so embarassed when people stop by from time to time.
2) Be Less Involved: I do too many things. I am hardly ever at home and I hardly ever get to do anything just for myself because I want to do it. This year, I resolve to have less things scheduled all the time. There's no reason I have to be out doing something every night of the week. It's ridiculous.
3) Be More Healthy: this is something I've been working on and something I want to continue. I want to keep going to the gym, keep shopping at the farmer's market, make more meals at home, and generally just be more health conscious.
4) Write More Blog Entries: I really enjoy writing, and blog entries are a great way to practice. Also, I see a lot of home improvements in my future, so I want to keep an updated log of those on my other blog, The Hateful Hovel.
So there you have it. Nothing to out of reach, I think. Wish me luck!
