So, it’s December10th and I guess we can talk about how I did this year.
Purchase a new laptop, hopefully before this one gives us the ghost.
Love my little Macbook Air.
Put more focus into decorating and organizing apartment. Slated to be in this place until mid 2014 at least— I’m not moving again until we buy a house—so I may as well make this one a little cozier.
Moved things around in the bedroom and made a listening area by the stereo. I’ve gotten rid of two bags of clothes and read enough to have a bag of books ready I’m still hesitant to put things on walls, but will work on it. New furniture hasn’t really been in the budget.
Stay committed to exercise and commit to yoga. Subgoal: Don’t let ‘runner’s knee’ derail me in these commitments.
Have been attending yoga every week with a few exceptions. I was attending twice a week until my teacher was ousted, right after I bought a 12 class card, of course. I’ve had fund exploring some other classes, but the schedule at this particular studio really sucks for people who work 8a-5p. I refuse to study with the person who took over my regular class. I need to do exercises laid out by doctor and get out to walk/jog/run more. Working two days of cardio into my week, want to do three.
Zero credit card debt.
I got in pretty deep with Bank of America. I’m happy to say I have ~$300 to pay them before I never have to deal with them ever, ever again. If I can’t manage it before the end of the month, will have it paid off by the first few weeks of January. IT HELPS THAT I GOT A RAISE. GO ME!
Devote more time to being in touch with friends / Don’t be such a old lady hermit.
I unfortunately haven’t connected with anyone that I’ve been missing, but I’ve maintained my important connections. I met someone I like a lot at work, but I became his boss a few months after that so there it goes. Just trying to be more open. Ask more questions.
Total epic fail. I’ve tried to go to classes at previously mentioned studio, but it has been cancelled two weeks in a row.
Read more. Subgoal: Reread Sandman
I’ve read twenty books this year which is embarrassingly small for someone who is a writer, but it’s a really big improvement. I’m not going to get to reread Sandman before the end of the year. I want to purchase all the volumes and I can’t do that until I get rid of some more books. I did buy the new issue though and it’s awesome. I have never bought a comic book before.
Ukulele? Or is that, like, totally over?
I think I’m getting one for Christmas. It is only a matter of time before you have the
misfortune opportunity of watching me cover “Map of Tasmania”.
Meet Neil Gaiman. Give him two kisses: one for him and one for Amanda.
Met Neil. No kissing. But the brief exchange was very sweet.
