a few resolutions for the new year

Friday, January 15, 2016

a flawed human, halfway through january.

Resolutions for 2016:

–Read more. My goal is one book a week, which I realize sounds a little daunting, but is more than doable for me when I'm focusing on it. So far I've been good about this.

–Go to bed early. (So I can wake up early.) This is literally always a resolution. I mostly fail at it, but I'm going to try again. Hopefully focusing on the bedtime part will help. I'd like to have a more consistent nightly routine, making tea, reading a bit, etc.

–One electronic free day per week: no cell phones, no TV, no computers. Unsure of what day this will be. Monday? Tuesday?

–Lose 15 pounds. I always say that I want to eat healthier and exercise. But this year I would really like to make it happen, and I think a number goal will help.

–Visit the studio 15 times per month. I made a little punch card so that if I meet my goal I will go out to a nice dinner.

And, above all, above all of this:

–Be a less anxious person. Be easier on myself. Be okay. (I know this contradicts everything above, but I'm going for a tiny bit of balance here.)

I did not make a clear goal for writing, or blogging here, but I do know that it will happen. And I know it's a huge part of that last resolution. I know it's a huge part of feeling like myself.


  1. I'm also trying to roughly ready a book a week. So far so good but I'd like an absolute of 35 this year. You've certainly made some intense goals in addition to planning a wedding! But with the little I know about you, im sure you will succeed!

  2. I love the idea of making punch card for a personal goal. Little victories like a stamp are often disregarded but I expect it will help them be more rewarding overall. I will be making my own as well, I hope it can help me to keep on track with my resolutions. Best of luck with all of yours!
