Default In 2019 I Resolve to Not Fail in My Resolutions

It's that arbitrary time when we make a lot of poorly thought out promises to ourselves for the sole purpose of making our future self feel terrible (more terrible) about ourselves!

Or as some people call it - New Year's Resolutions!

And the truth is it doesn't matter when you decide to change your life it's arbitrary so the beginning of another revolution around the Sun is as good as any others.

Share your resolutions here!

For myself, I find that putting mine in the form of "Do more/Do less" helps me think about the changes I want to make in my life instead of a just a new task. It helps me be conscious of my time and how I want to prioritize it. An example would be: More fiction and less Twitter.

I started going to the gym last year and it has put me in better shape but hasnít done crap for my beer belly so Iím going to start *shudder* calorie counting.

They make diet scotch, right?

I'm going to write a book.

Finishing it by the end of the year would be nice.

I feel like I did enough in 2018 that I'm absolved of having to do resolutions for the rest of my life. Anything I accomplish from now on is bonus.

I'm going to keep bike-riding until I'm able to take it out into the road with confidence. That's the big one.

I'd also like to try to get better at drawing anything. Like, anything at all. A table would be nice.

I'd also like to get a better job by the end of the year.

I would make an exercise resolution but that's not going to happen.

I don't know why I feel like saying "You can do it!" but, you can do it, Teaspoon!

An aspect of myself I'm not terribly fond with is my tendency to start media but rarely finish. So this year I'm focusing on getting through things completely books, games, whatever instead of jumping to whatever grabs my fancy.

I sure hope it takes less than another year to Get Over Her (or, you know, at least be in a sufficiently healthy place of acceptance that I can get the fuck on with my life). I don't know how to get there yet but here's hoping.

Or just generally rebuild my emotional core from the smoking crater it is at the moment.

*cough* sorry.

Meanwhile, I should get back on my bike at some point. Catch up on some reading. Rescue my retro toy closet blog project from the flaming ruins of tumblr and do something with it. Those would all be nice too.

I'm going to cut McDonalds and Pizza out of my life. Walking a few more minutes to get something healthier will do me good!
